INTRO TO TITLES
Radio Announcer voice
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to a brand new adventure starring the ever glorious, Miss Betty Boop. That singing-and-dancing ray of cartoon sunshine...When last we saw Betty she was:
Always getting into trouble... Always getting out of trouble... And always getting into it again...
Betty was friendly to everyone even though some were a bit to friendly.
But somehow she always got away and came home to be America's favorite sweetheart.
That was only the beginning! Join us now as our plucky heroine, together with her trusty pals Koko the clown and Bimbo, the musical dog, take on the wild and wonderful world of Hollywood where anything can happen and usually does.
