One of the all-time-great commercial cartoon mixes of the surreal and the silly, this Fleischer Studios short featuring Betty Boop's canine friend Bimbo has been a longtime favorite amongst animators, cinephiles and lovers of the simply strange. Minding his own business while walking down the street, Bimbo is plunged without warning into a subterranean world of macabre funhouse perils by candle-headed secret society types who keep asking him "Wanna be a member?" Demented and dazzling, it features one heckuva climactic cameo by Ms. Boop herself. - Dennis Harvey
