Betty Boop tries to get away from the circus ringmaster (William Pennell) but trips over a rock outside her tent in “Boop-Oop-a-Doop” (1932). The ringmaster simply reaches out, grabs the crying Betty by the butt and hauls her back in.
Fortunately, Koko the Clown comes to her aid. No one can take Betty’s boop-oop-a-doop away. Except the Hayes Office in 1934, which didn’t quite approve of scenes as above.
