Wanna Be A Member?


This is the real deal right here. Bimbo’s Initiation is the definition of animation: It’s insane, something out of your dreams, and beyond anything that could happen in real life. When I watch this cartoon, it reaffirms my opinion that animation is the most limitless medium out there.

In this short, Bimbo (Betty Boop’s boyfriend) falls into a manhole only to realize that he’s interrupted a cultish ceremony. He’s soon under pressure to join the club or face death. This short was eventually apropriated for a Squirrel Nut Zippers video, though I can’t say it has the same charm.
