Dizzy Dishes is an animated short film created by the Fleischer Studios in 1930 as part of the Talkartoon series. It is famous as a debut cartoon of Betty Boop.


The short film begins with a couple of flapper cats singing "Crazy Town." Bimbo waits on a hungry gorilla and then goes to the kitchen to prepare the order, roast duck. When he is about to bring it to the gorilla's table, he sees Betty Boop performing on stage and falls in love at first sight. He completely forgets about the hungry customer and dances on stage with the duck. The gorilla gets furious and goes after Bimbo, who then escapes on a wooden train.


The as-yet-unevolved Betty Boop is drawn as an anthropomorphic dog. Except for the ears, she resembles Betty Boop in her latest incarnation. Also, she is merely a side character; the main plotline revolves around the incompetent chef Bimbo and the irate gorilla-customer. "Crazy Town," sung by the flapper cats in the beginning of the cartoon, is also the theme song for the 1932 film, Crazy Town.
