 Betty Boop's Life Guard (1934)

Betty is spending the day at the beach, where her boyfriend Fearless Fred works as a life guard. Betty is enjoying the ocean while floating in her inflatable rubber horsey when it springs a leak. Freddy dives in to save Betty, but she goes under, where she begins to imagine she's a mermaid. At first Betty enjoys her new underwater life, swimming and singing with the other undersea inhabitants. The fun ends when a sea monster chases her. Just before the monster catches her, she wakes up, safe in Freddy's arms.


  • Fearless Fred: "Don't go out too far Betty you know you can't swim."
  • Betty Boop: "I'll be alright Freddy I have my rubber horsey!"
  • Fearless Fred: "Good bye Freddy!"
