Betty Co-Ed is a 1931 Screen Song about the eponymous character, Betty Co-ed, who is wooed by a dweebish frat boy. Rudy Vallée sings an unflattering song about her. Betty Co-Ed: "La la la la la la la la!". Rudy Vallée:"Hi-Ho everybody, I suppose you are familiar with the very popular Betty Co-Ed in a nice way of course lets sing about the most popular girl on the campus.
Sun bonneted Betty Boop takes a train to "Rudy Valley" where she gains weight and Rudy Vallee performs the title song with Bouncing Ball. No videos, backdrops or posters have been added to Kitty from Kansas City.
Kitty (Betty) was walking to a Kansas City train station, and she waited for her train to Rudy Valley, a place where her friend (Rudy) lives. As she waited, the train’s mail compartment sign snatches her. A mouse writes Fe behind mail, as a parody of the word female. She reaches Rudy Valley, where the cartoon changes to a live-action performance of Vallée and his Connecticut Yankees singing and playing the song.
