Betty Boop: A Hunting We Will Go

Here is a Betty Boop cartoon I have neither posted nor seen before.  Betty sings about wanting a fur coat, so naturally, Bosko and Bimbo try to impress her by going hunting.  After several failed attempts, they get some pelts, but Betty feels sorry for the animals, gets mad at Bosko and Bimbo, and returns all the animals' coats, as can only happen in a cartoon.  From the Internet Archive, here is A Hunting We Will Go
