Bimbo's Initiation

"Bimbo's Initiation" scared the dickens out of me when I was little. Maybe it was the spanking. Maybe it was the sex. Maybe it was Betty Boop with spaniel ears.

Or maybe it was the notion that Mickey Mouse might push me down a sewer.

Hey cool -- I saw your comment via the Del Rey Twitter feed, but I'm also the one who posted that vid to YouTube 3 years ago. It's an incredible video!

Thanks for posting the video! You've caused me to revisit childhood nightmares.

I'm on the Del Ray Twitter feed?

Wow - I am frightened beyond measure and with watching this right before bed my dreams should be too. I suspect that you have to go through these particular rituals to win a Hugo.

Lots of cartoons scared me when I was a child - particularly 'Popeye', for some reason. I'm certainly glad I didn't see 'Bimbo's Initiation' at a tender age - if I had, I would probably be even madder than I am now!

Hee hee --

I remember seeing this in the early eighties as a wee child -- some friends of my parents used to have parties where they'd show old movies and cartoons on a projector at their house.

Gorgeous and terrifying stuff. Though considering that our hero ends up getting to nasty-dance with like thirty Betty Boops, i'm not feeling too bad for him.
