Betty Boop (Missing 1938 Shorts)
|A fan's recreation of what the title card for "Honest Love and True" might have looked like.|
There are two missing shorts from the famous Betty Boop series. "Honest Love and True" (1938) is said to place Betty in the role of a worker at a Klondike saloon. It is rumoured to have been included in the 1942-1943 16mm film rental catalogue for Films Incorporated, but this claim has not yet been confirmed.
"Buzzy Boop at the Concert" (1938) was most likely about Betty's cousin, Buzzy, wreaking havoc at a concert. Very little is known about this short beyond this surmised premise.
Reputable animation historian Jerry Beck has regarded both of these shorts as lost.
