Kitty from Kansas City (1931)

*** (out of 4)

The Fleischer Studio produced a number of these animated short films where the "bouncing ball" would have audience members singing together. The story here has Betty Boop taking a train trip when she lands in Rocky Vally where she hears Richie Vallee playing over the intercom. When then flash to Vallee doing the title song and soon the bouncing ball comes out. KITTY FROM KANSAS CITY is actually a pretty good little film that manages to make you laugh with some of the lyrics in the song. Vallee certainly does a nice job delivering the lines and there's no doubt that it's always a blast seeing Boop do her thing. From the animated pieces that highlight has to be the scene where a bird decides to pinch Betty's butt.
