Bimbo Runs like a Dog?

I've been busy lately and haven't had much time to post but here is another cycle from 'Betty Boop's Movie Cartoon Lessons'. This time out we have Bimbo running on all fours like a real dog! Kinda solidifies what we all know about the nature of the relationship between Bimbo and Betty doesn't it? Don't forget to stop off a Sporn's for his delicious Wiffle Piffle cycle!

I have it on good word that this is a newsreel excerpt of Bimbo The Chimp Dog trying out for the '38 Olympics. He didn't make the cut, but later on became a personal trainer to famous movie stars.

I've heard rumors about the state in which his body was found in that hotel room in the late 50's. Otherwise Bimbo's later career in dinner theater, his disastrous team-ups with Sammy Petrillo, his several high profile divorces and his slow descent into chronic abuse remains undocumented.

Sammy Petrillo?!?! Sammy is proof that show biz is not only a cut-throat affair but that Jerry Lewis would be locked up if not for Scorcese and the French.
You know, Petrillo and Bimbo remained good friends despite it all, and it was Sammy's idea that Bimbo should assume Ray Milland's identity for the two semi-autobiographical flicks, "The Lost Weekend" and "The Man With The X-ray Eyes".

This is AWESOME. Thanks for posting!

I always figured they did it snoop-doggy-dawg style anyway. :D
