“I Betcha”

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Line used by the Marian Jordan character Teeny on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio show to annoy the Fibber McGee character. The phrase is used numerous times in cartoons from the 1930s, for example by the little Indian in Sioux Me (Hardaway/Dalton, 1939) and, in a manner rather like the original, by the obnoxious little goose in Porky’s Hotel (Clampett, 1939).
