Status Partially Lost

There were two missing shorts from the famous Betty Boop series. The short "Honest Love and True", was released in 1938, and placed 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 tomboy cousin, Buzzy, wreaking havoc at a concert. Very little is known about this short beyond this surmised premise.

Reputable animation historian Jerry Beck had regarded both of these shorts as lost, but in early 2017, he revealed UCLA had found a print of "Honest Love and True", albeit with no audio. It was restored and screened at the UCLA's Festival of Preservation that year.

I have so little info but in my opinion I think it's a lost short film and is real that's all for now.

It's not entirely uncommon for shorts from this era to be lost or misplaced. They were often only circulated for a single film and afterward would not be used again, earning them shelf space in poorly ventilated warehouses for long-term storage.
