Any Rags? is a 1932 Pre-Code Fleischer Studios Talkartoon animated short film starring Betty Boop, Bimbo, and Koko the Clown.

It features the song "Any Rags?", a 1902 ragtime schottische by Thomas S. Allen.


Bimbo the garbage man walks the streets asking townsfolk "Any Rags?" (during which he strips people's clothes off and takes other things that are not really garbage as trash). He comes across Betty Boop who throws her garbage to him from her window. Bimbo then auctions all the garbage he has collected from his cart to a crowd which includes Koko the Clown, who purchases a bowtie. When Bimbo opens Betty's garbage bag, Betty Boop leaps out and kisses Bimbo. The cart then rolls down the hill and turns into a home for Betty and Bimbo.
