BIMBO in THE ROBOT - Max Fleischer (1932)

83 years ago there was a cartoon dog named Bimbo! B-I-M-B-O, B-I-M-B-O, B-I-M-B-O, and Bimbo was his name-o!

Bimbo is an inventor, and is pretty smart for being a dog!

It's hard for me to realize that the concept of television even existed back in 1932, but then that's how far Bimbo was ahead of his peers!

Bimbo uses his television to spy on his girlfriend! This is not her, but in later cartoons, Bimbo's girlfriend was Betty Boop! The boy gets around!

Bimbo's girlfriend thinks it would be a good idea for him to enter this contest!

He's not called "One-Round Mike" for no reason! Here's the rest of his victims!

One-Round Mike is ready to take on the next challenger, Bimbo!!

Bimbo comes up with a quick plan on how to turn his car into a robot!

At first, Mike gets the upperhand!

But the robot car comes back with a vengeance and kicks Mike's butt all over the place!

The title Bimbo in "The Robot" has double meaning since that's exactly where Bimbo was the whole time, inside the robot! What a weirdo!!
