''WesternAnimation/PoorCinderella'' is a 1934 animated short produced by Creator/FleischerStudios. It is the inaugural entry in the ''WesternAnimation/ColorClassics'' series and is the only color appearance of WesternAnimation/BettyBoop, who plays the titular character.

It is noted that this is the first Fleischer cartoon produced in color, in this case Cinecolor, as Creator/WaltDisney had the exclusive rights to the Technicolor process for use in his ''SillySymphonies''. It is also the first use of the Fleischers' patented "stereoptical" process that allows animated characters to exist over live models, giving the settings a sense of depth and realism.
