Betty Boop's Ker-Choo is a 1933 Fleischer Studios animated short film starring Betty Boop, and featuring Koko the Clown and Bimbo.


Bimbo and Koko are among the contestants in a big auto race, where all the funny animals in Fleischer-land are in attendance (the "humanized" cars await in stalls like horses, and the judge's panel consists of three elderly blind men). The favorite in the race is Betty Boop, but she's late again, and her Yiddish-accented car has no idea where she is. When Betty finally shows up, she explains in song that her tardiness is due to a "cold in my 'nose'".

Once the race begins, it's a real thriller-spiller, with even the spectators getting into the act—and catching Betty's cold in the process ("Ah, ah, CHOO!)"[1] Eventually, Betty wins the race.

Notes and comments[edit]

Betty sings the song "I've Got a Cold in My Nose", written by Scott Bradley with lyrics by Joseph Hanna.[2]
