Betty Boop: Jack And The Beanstalk

Time for another Betty Boop cartoon.  In this 1931 short, Jack (a/k/a "Bimbo," although he does not look like the Bimbo from the other Boop toons) climbs the beanstalk and rescues Betty from the giant.  She is still in her early form, including the dog-like ears.  From the Internet Archive, here is Jack And The Beanstalk.
