Some Betty Boop History.



Betty Boop has been around for 70 years now, and she still retains her girlish figure. And while her career isn't what it used to be, animated cartoon character Betty Boop lives on as something of a cult figure. Just ask any of the thousands and thousands of fans and collectors out there!

But no matter of her age or her employment status, Betty Boop is still Hollywood's first animated sex symbol.

Created by Grim Natwick, Betty Boop first appeared in 1930 as a dog character, making her debut in a film called Dizzy Dishes. She was the "love interest" of another dog character named Bimbo, in the "Talkartoons" series produced by the Fleischer brothers. She appeared in several cartoons as this dog character through 1930. But it didn't take long for Betty's popularity to top that of Bimbo's, and she soon became the main character in the cartoons.

But as Betty's popularity grew, she went through a transformation, and lost her dog characteristics along the way. Her dog ears eventually became earrings and before long she became the cute and sexy character that her fans have grown to love. Her body was modeled after Mae West, and her voice was done by Mae Questal.

All in all, there were more then one hundred Betty Boop cartoons produced, the last one being in 1939. But Betty's popularity began to decline after her creators were forced to "clean her up" under the Hays Code. That's when the short little skirts with her garter showing, disappeared. Her hemline then moved down to her knees, eliminating the "cute" and "sexy" characteristics that had made Betty popular, and that meant the beginning of the end of Betty's popularity.

But in the 1930's, during her prime, Betty Boop was made into dolls, toys, and many other collectibles. Then her popularity declined for several decades. But in the 1980's she began to become popular again. Now she has become more popular than ever, and there are many new products and collectibles available, among those are dolls, ceramics, T-shirts, posters, watches, and much, much more. Almost anything you can think of, is now available.
