Cartoon Summary:


Actually, two cartoons in one. The main story is a normal Betty Boop story based on the Snow White fairy tale. But sandwiched in the middle is a nightmare vignette which would seem more at home in a 1960s art-house film. The wicked queen tells her henchmen (Koko and Bimbo) "Off with her head!", but they can't do it, and release her. Betty falls into a pit and becomes frozen in a block of ice, and her "dead" body is carried by the Seven Dwarfs into a mysterious cavern. Koko, morphed into an odd ghost figure with the voice and mannerisms of Cab Calloway, sings "St. James Infirmary" and dances. The queen turns herself into a dragon who chases the three until she is turned inside out by Bimbo, and the trio escape.

This is probably one of the most astonishing cartoons on all history. The beginning and the end are typical of the animation of the time, with the wacky touch of the cartoons of the period, but the scene where Koko the clown is transformed into a ghost by...  (read more)

I remember this cartoon from my childhood. It is by far the best cartoon story I have ever experienced. Seeing is believing.

This must stand above all cartoons for its portrayal of the sheer horror that hides in our subconscious. Roland C. (Doc) Crandel animated this cartoon alone...over a six month period. The huge panoramic background is so full of eerie tablaux that one must...  (read more)

Snow White is the Boop cartoon that actually made the Library of Congress National Registry of most important American films - yep, it's that good! The basic Snow White story - bad queen, poor little princess, hiding out in the woods - only when...  (read more)
