INTERESTING LINKS: Bollywood Superman II: January 30th, 2009



A while ago, I called your attention to a Bollywood Superman and Spiderman video. I ran across a few awesome new blogs yesterday that I was previously unaware of… one of which was Cool-Mo-Dee. In one post, they called my attention to another great Bollywood Superman video… go here to see it.

THE CARTOON CRYPT: Betty Boop in Betty in Blunderland (1934)


Another excellent, surreal Betty Boop cartoon… I love the Jabberwocky in this. The featured song in it, “How Do You Do,” is an altered version of the song “Everyone Says I Love You.” Below is Groucho Marx’s wonderful version of that song from Horse Feathers (1932) (starts at 36 seconds in or so). There are other great versions of that song in Horse Feathers as well… note that you can see the entire movie on YouTube starting here. I’ve exported the music from both movies as mp3’s for your listening pleasure… you can grab those here.
