 House Cleaning Blues (1937)

Betty wakes up the morning after her birthday party. The house is a shambles, and Betty is not looking forward to cleaning up. She sings the title song while struggling with her chores. Grampy shows up to take Betty out for a drive, but Betty will not leave until everything is tidy. Grampy literally puts on his thinking cap (a mortarboard with a light bulb on top), and invents a host of labor-saving devices: a cuckoo clock-powered dishwasher, a combination bicycle and floor scrubber, and a player piano that folds laundry. In no time at all, the dancing inventor has the house spic and span, just in time to take Betty for a spin in his automobile (which features a built-in soda fountain).


  • Grampy: "Hello Betty ready for our drive?"
  • Betty Boop: "I can't ride with you today Grampy, I've too much house cleaning to do. Come on in anyhow."
  • Grampy: "You go and get your duds on and leave this mess to me."
