Making Stars is a 1935 Fleischer Studio animated short film, starring Betty Boop. The short contains one of the earliest clear examples of the oriental riff that would become popular as a leitmotif for Asian culture following the release of the 1974 song Kung Fu Fighting.
Betty is the MC of "Making Stars", a stage revue introducing the "stars of tomorrow": a series of performing babies. Acts include the Colorful 3 (a trio of stereotyped Black babies singing "Hi De Ho"), an Asian baby marksman, and a bouncing Russian baby named "Little Miss Trotsky."
