Here we are, the fifth and final installment of 1934’s Paramount Sales News cartoons by Hal Seeger. The sun has set on Betty Boop while the Popeyes are increasingly excellent. Even, so, Betty Boop’s marquee value is still comparable to Greta Garbo (see Nov. 21’s panel). The intertwining of Paramount’s live action players with Fleischer’s celluloid characters would continue throughout the decade.
