So Does an Automobile is a 1939 Fleischer Studios animated short film starring Margie Hines as Betty Boop.


Betty operates an auto repair garage for sick and injured automobiles. Betty sings as she restores broken-down taxicabs, high-price limousines and restores a police car with sore and flat feet (tires) back to perfect condition again.


Instrumental versions of the theme song for this cartoon were later used in Betty's next film, Musical Mountaineers, and later in the 1940 Popeye cartoon, Wimmin Hadn't Oughta Drive.
