Cartoon Summary:


One of the darkest and most surreal of all the Fleischer cartoons. It's the depths of the Depression, and Betty is dispossessed. The cartoon opens with Betty singing a song while she and Bimbo are evicted from their foreclosed home. They pack their belongings into a horse-drawn cart and leave the neighborhood. As Betty leaves her house, a "For Sale" sign goes up. The picture backs away, and then the whole block is for sale, then the whole country, and finally, the whole world. The Moon gathers all the planets around to auction off the Earth. Mars and Venus do not bid high enough, but the planet Saturn gets the high bid to buy Earth (of course, the Moon demands cash up front from Saturn, not really seeming to trust him). Saturn decides to see what happens if he takes gravity out of the earth... so he reaches in and pulls out a large magnet. With no gravity, Betty and all her friends and the houses, etc. begin falling up. Gravity is reversed, along with all other activities on earth. Removing the Earth's gravity allows Betty's skirt to blow upwards and reveal her panties. When gravity is restored, Betty plummets back to Earth. She sings the closing song while a number of houses crash upon her.

In what looks to be a classic case of Depression-era real-estate blues, Betty puts up the farm for sale - but it turns up the whole country . . nay the world is up on the block. In a brilliant piece of Fleischer fantasy, the other planets cluster around as...  (read more)

Betty's house is for sale and Bimbo in his horse drawn wagon helps here move.
As they pull away her house gradually falls apart, with each time the for sale sign price lowers. We pan to the block, it's for sale, the USA is for sale and finally...  (read more)
