Betty Boop, Animated Character
Born: 8 August 1930
Birthplace: Talkartoons, Paramount Studios
Best Known As: Coy and sexy '30s cartoon
by Max Fleischer for Paramount Studio's Talkartoons, Betty Boop began
as dog. By 1930 she had evolved into a coy flapper whose innocent
skirt-lifting and trademark line "boop-boop-a-doop" were sweetly
suggestive of more than just singing and dancing. She starred in over
100 cartoons from 1931 to 1939, getting increasingly less saucy (and
less popular). She continues to have strong merchandising power.
Boop is an animated cartoon character appearing in the Talkartoon and
Betty Boop series of films produced by Max Fleischer and released by
Paramount Pictures. With her overt sexuality, Betty was a hit with
theater-goers, and despite having been toned down in the 1930s, she
remains popular today for this sexiness. She was also the first truly
feminine cartoon character.
SHE WAS BORN ON BROADWAY. Created by Max
Fleischer on a drawing board during the dark days of the Great
Depression, Betty Boop quickly became a legend, the first animated femme
fatale, the Queen of Cartoons. Since her 1930 debut at the New York
City-based Fleischer Studios, Betty Boop has starred in more than 100
Fleischer cartoons, two syndicated comic strips, two animated musical
television specials for CBS, and in the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger
Rabbit She was saluted in a prime-time, star-studded tribute on American
Movie Classics and was the first cartoon character to be featured in
A&Es award-winning Biography series. With her unique combination of
sassy spirit and common sense, she has become a citizen of the world and
a role model for women and young girls.
Today, Betty Boop
is a worldwide licensing and merchandising phenomenon, with her classic
image appearing on practically everything, including cookie jars and
other ceramic pieces, toys, food, apparel and accessories, housewares,
consumer electronics and even lottery tickets.
