This [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1933]] WesternAnimation/BettyBoop short is a very, ''very'' loose adaptation of [[Literature/SnowWhite the original tale of Snow White]], not to be confused with [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs the Disney version]]. During wintertime, Betty visits her step-mother the queen, with the two guards WesternAnimation/KokoTheClown and Bimbo the Dog being instantly smitten by her. After the queen is told by her magic mirror that Betty is the fairest in the land, she orders her beheaded. However, Bimbo and Koko are too infatuated to comply with this order and fall down the hole that was intended for her-as Betty escapes and gets frozen in an ice block in the process, with the seven dwarfs carrying her away. The rest of the short is centered around Koko and Bimbo as they try to save her.

Added DiffLines:

* BodyHorror: Bimbo defeats the Evil Queen (or the dragon-creature she was turned into) by turning her inside out.

Added DiffLines:

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: The BigBad of the short is a vain queen obsessed with being "the fairest in the land".


Added DiffLines:

* OneWingedAngel: Near the end of the short, the mirror turns the Queen into a dragon who chases after Betty, Koko and Bimbo.

On a side note, this short was something of a one man show-the only animator on this short was dedicated Fleischer employee Roland "Doc" Crandall, as a reward for his years of hard work at the studio. It took him only six months to complete, with very little help from assistant animators and inbetweeners.

complete the seven-minute short.

Added DiffLines:

* ExposedToTheElements: Despite the snowy weather, Betty still wears her short skirted flapper dress and never shows any signs of being cold.


* CompositeCharacter: Koko and Bimbo take the roles of both the huntsmen who are forced to kill Snow White ''and'' Prince Charming (more or less)



* InNameOnly: The short starts out pretty close to the Grimms fairy tale, but around the middle, it drifts off so far, it's advised to consider this cartoon strictly as a Betty Boop short (even the poisoned apple is nowhere to be seen.)

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyJazzMusic: When Snow White (Betty Boop) is killed by the witch, Calloway (as Koko the Clown) sings a haunting rendition of "Saint James Infirmary", while the witch transforms Koko into a weird ghost-like monster.

* [[PoliceAreUseless Best friends are useless:]] How do Kobo and Bimbo try to protect Betty from the queen? By singing ''Minnie the moocher'' behind the dwarves as they carry Betty, and ''sitting'' on the ice cub Betty is trapped in instead of helping the dwarves carry it respectively!
