 Betty Boop, M.D. (1932)

Betty, Bimbo and Koko are the owners of a travelling medicine show. They are selling "Jippo", an all-purpose health tonic. Koko's contortionist display does little to convince the local townsfolk to open their wallets, but Betty gets the whole town eager to buy their product. Even though it is only water, drinking the tonic causes everyone to exhibit strange side-effects, from unusual hair growth to rapid de-aging or even death. The animated short features the song "Nobody's Sweetheart Now", followed by scat singing.


  • Koko the Clown: "Now who will buy Jippo?"
  • Betty Boop: "Now here's the place you should commence to formulate theories that are dense."
  • Betty Boop: "Now folks come on buy a box of a Jippo!"
  • Betty Boop: "Oooh! Gee daddy I got the thing that's gonna fix you right up! Here try it!"
