Crazy Inventions (film #17 on Cartoon Crazys: Sci-Fi (WinStar Home Entertainment, 1999)). [Category: Hollywood]

Betty Boop hosts a Big Invention Show, featuring weird and wacky cartoon inventions. This is a great concept, though I think it could have been just a bit weirder in execution. Still, the cartoon really takes off when the Self-Threading Sewing Machine goes on a rampage and starts sewing up everything in sight, including ladders, rivers, and people's mouths. Lots of fun.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
