A Little bit about Betty Boop

Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character that was created
by legendary animator Max Fleischer. Betty appeared in the
"Talkartoon" and "Betty Boop" series of films produced by
Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures. Betty
was a hit with filmgoers. Her appearance was toned down in
the mid-1930's, but she is still popular today. Items that
sport Betty Boop's image are popular collectables with
women. She has been featured in two different comic strips,
one in the 1930's and another in the 1980's.

Betty Boop made her first appearance on August 9, 1930 in
the cartoon "Dizzy Dishes", the sixth installment in
Fleischer's Talkartoon series. The character was modeled
after a combination of Helen Kane, a famous popular singer
of the 1920's and contract player at Paramount Pictures, and
Clara Bow, who was a popular silent pictures actress in the
1920's but who didn't managed to make the transition to
sound because of her strong Brooklyn accent. Interestingly,
that same accent became a trademark for Betty.

The character was originally created as an anthropomorphic
French poodle. Max Fleischer recreated Betty as completely
human in 1932 in the cartoon "Any Rags". Betty appeared in
ten cartoons as a supporting character, a flapper girl with
more heart than brains. In individual cartoons she was
called "Nancy Lee" and "Nan McGrew", usually appearing as a
girlfriend to "Bimbo".

Margie Hines provided the first Betty Boop voice, which was
later provided by several different voice actresses
including Ann Rothschild (a.k.a. Little Ann Little), Kate
Wright, Bonnie Poe, and most well known was Mae Questel, who
began the role in 1931 and continued until 1938.

Although it is often assumed that Betty's first name was
established in the 1931 Screen Songs cartoon Betty Co-ed,
this "Betty" was an entirely different character. (The
official Betty Boop website calls Betty Co-ed a prototype of
Betty Boop.) There were about twelve "Screen Songs" cartoons
that featured either Betty Boop or a similar character.

Betty appeared in the first "Color Classic" cartoon "Poor
Cinderella", her only theatrical color appearance (1934). In
a cameo appearance in the feature film Who Framed Roger
Rabbit (1988), in her traditional black and white, and
voiced by Mae Questel, Betty mentioned that work had "gotten
slow since cartoons went to color," but she still had "what
it takes."

Betty Boop became the star of the Talkartoons by 1932, and
was given her own series in that same year beginning with
"Stopping the Show". From this point on, she was crowned
"The Queen of the Animated Screen." The series was hugely
popular throughout the 1930's, lasting until 1939.

Betty Boop is still tremendously popular today. There are
many shops online dedicated to Betty Boop merchandise and
gifts, and even forums and clubs of Betty Boop lovers and
