Betty Boop TP
Dynamite

It’s rude to mention a lady’s age, but, in Betty Boop TP, which has a cracking Howard Chaykin cover, the original Boop-Oop-A-Doop girl shows she still has what it takes even if she is a sprightly eighty-six years young.

Betty Boop TP is a four issue, 106 page collection which sees Betty working extra shifts at the Oop-A-Doop club to support her aged Grampy and her own showbiz aspirations. When the dastardly Lenny Lizardlips swindles Grampy out of his house, Betty swings into action, garter blazing, to put things right.

Little do they know, in Betty Boop TP, the evil Lenny is working for the Devil himself who wants Betty’s innocent soul to add to his collection and will stop at nothing to get it. A man must certainly after my own heart.

Betty Boop TP is chock full of anthropomorphic funsters like Betty’s wannabe paramour, Bimbo, her irascible boss Mr. Finkle, jazz supremo Scat Skellington, Koko the Clown and tone-deaf waitress Sally Swing plus Grampy’s kookie inventions, troublesome insects and a trio of spooks who look like Casper’s naughty cousins.

Betty Boop TP takes us through the bad guys’ repeated attempt to deliver Betty’s pure soul to their demonic master and claim Grampy’s house as their very own haunted castle. With the help of her friends and a big heart that’s in direct inverse proportion the length of her skirts, Betty sticks to her guns and shows that nice people don’t always finish last. For out and out fun and laughs, Betty Boop TP is the best Boop-Oop-A-Doop in town.
