 On With the New (1939)

Betty Boop is an overworked cook and dishwasher at the Ye Olde Quainte Coffee Pott. She gets fed up on being the general dishwasher and order-filler, quits her job and gets a new job at Bundle from Heaven Nursery, as a "Nursery Attendant", but the babies prove to be tough children who run Betty ragged. Betty runs away from her job and goes back to her quiet job at the Quainte Coffee Pott.
