Minding the Baby
Minding the Baby (1931)
Bimbo's mom has fallen out with her husband and has had an affair with the ice man. Bimbo's Mother goes shopping and leaves Bimbo in charge of his baby brother, Aloysius. Betty Boop (who still has her long floppy dog ears) wants Bimbo to come over to her house to play. Bimbo then sneaks over to Betty's. Aloysius misbehaves while Bimbo is over at Betty's apartment, then uses a vacuum cleaner and vacuums Betty and Bimbo from next door and his mother from off the street. The brothers' mom is furious, as Betty, Bimbo and Aloysius hide behind a chair in Bimbo's apartment. Aloysius starts to cry, then Bimbo zips his brother's mouth shut.
