Origins

Betty Boop made her first appearance on August 9, 1930 in the cartoon Dizzy Dishes, the sixth installment in Fleischer's Talkartoon series. She was originally designed by Grim Natwick, a veteran animator of the silent era who would become lead director and animator for the Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney studios. The character was modeled after a combination of Helen Kane,the famous popular singer of the 1920s and contract player at Paramount Pictures, the studio that distributed Fleischer's cartoons and Clara Bow who was a popular actress in the 1920s who had not managed to survive the transition to sound because of her strong Brooklyn accent, yet became a trademark for Betty. By direction of Dave Fleischer, Natwick designed the original character in the mode of an anthropomorphic French poodle. The character's voice was first performed by Margie Hines, and was later provided by several different voice actresses including Kate Wright, Ann Rothschild (a.k.a. Little Ann Little), Bonnie Poe, and most notably, Mae Questel who began in 1931 and continued with the role until 1938. is the 221st day of the year (222nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

While the original design was rather ugly and awkward, she was developed further after Natwick's departure under Berny Wolf, Seymour Kneitel, Roland Crandall, and Willard Bowsky. Betty became finalized as completely human by 1932 in the cartoon Any Rags. Her floppy poodle ears became hoop earrings, and her black poodle nose became a girl's button-like nose. 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 served as a girlfriend to studio star Bimbo. An earring is a piece of jewelry that is worn on the ear. ...

Although it has been assumed that Betty's first name was established in the 1931 Screen Songs cartoon Betty Co-ed, this "Betty" was, an entirely different character. Though the song may have led to Betty's eventual christening, any references to Betty Co-ed as a Betty Boop vehicle are incorrect. (The official Betty Boop website describes the titular character as a "prototype" of Betty.) In all, there were at least 12 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). Betty made a cameo appearance in the feature film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), in her traditional black and white, saying work had "gotten slow since cartoons went to color," but she still had "what it takes." Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a 1988 film produced by Amblin Entertainment and The Walt Disney Company (released on its Touchstone Pictures banner), which blends traditional animation and live action. ...


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 1930s, lasting until 1939. But her best appearances are considered to be in the first three years due to her "Jazz Baby" character with innocent sexuality, which was aimed at adults. However the content of her films was affected by the National Legion of Decency and the Production Code of 1933. The Production Code guidelines imposed on the Motion Picture Industry placed specific restrictions on the content films with references to sexual innuendo. This greatly affected the content of the films of Mae West at Paramount, as well as the Betty Boop cartoons until the end of the series. Stopping the Show is a 1932 Fleischer Studios animated short, directed by Dave Fleischer. ... The National Legion of Decency was an organization dedicated to identifying, and combatting, objectionable content in American motion pictures. ... The Production Code (also known as the Hays Code) was a set of industry guidelines governing the production of American motion pictures. ...


Betty Boop was the subject of additional publicity in 1934 when Helen Kane launched a major lawsuit against Max Fleischer and Paramount Studios for the "deliberate caricature" that produced "unfair competition" that exploited her personality and image. While Miss Kane had risen to fame in the 1920s as "The Boop-Oop-A-Doop Girl" star of stage, recordings, and films for Paramount, her career was over by 1930. Interestingly, Paramount promoted the development of Betty Boop following Miss Kane's decline. As Miss Kane's claims seemed on the surface to be valid, it was proven that her appearance was not unique in that she and the Betty Boop character bore a resemblance to Clara Bow, another major star of Paramount. But the largest evidence against Miss Kane's case was her claims to the origins of her singing style. While an outgrowth of Jazz "scat singing," testimony revealed that Miss Kane had witnessed a black performer, "Baby Esther" using a similar characterization in an act at the famous Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem some years earlier. An early test sound film was discovered of Baby Esther performing in this style, disproving Miss Kane's claims. For the 1984 film of the same name, see The Cotton Club The Cotton Club was a famous night club in New York City that operated during and after Prohibition. ...


While "Betty Boop" continued in production for the next five years, her best films had already been released, since her personality was greatly neutralized from that point on. Due to a combination of policies affected by the Production Code and also changes in the content of Paramount's films also affected Betty's later appearances. While her later cartoons were more slick and consistently produced, they relied heavily on self-consciously cute and moralistic preaching, making Betty more of a "good citizen" maiden aunt spinster separated from any references to sexuality, and innocent girlishness. Oddly, Betty became a secondary character in her own cartoons, which began to center on the adventures of her pet dog, Pudgy, and the eccentric inventor, Grampy, who bore an interesting resemblance to Koko the Clown. Grampy is an animated cartoon character appearing in the Betty Boop series of films produced by Max Fleischer and released by Paramount Pictures. ... Koko the Clown and Fitz Koko the Clown was an animated character created by animation pioneer Max Fleischer. ...


While the period that Betty represented had been replaced by the the "Big Bands" of the Swing Era, Fleischer Studios made an attempt to develop a replacement character in this style in the "Betty Boop" cartoon, "Sally Swing" (1938). While a concept with potential, the character was not well conceived and failed to project an energetic personality of the type later developed by Tex Avery at MGM, or the type emerging from Betty Hutton, a major Paramount star and symbol of the "Swing" and "Jitterbug" craze. The Swing Era was the period of time (1935-1946) when big band swing music was the most popular music in America. ... Betty Hutton (born Elizabeth June Thornburg, February 26, 1921 – March 11, 2007[1]) was an American film actress and singer. ...


The last "Betty Boop" cartoons were released in 1939, and a few made attempts to bring Betty into the "Swing Era." In her last appearance, "Rhythm on the Reservation" (1939), she drives an open convertible labeled, "Betty Boop's Swing Band" while driving through a settlement of Native Americans. While in some ways considered "politically incorrect" by today's standards and sentiments over racial stereotypes, Betty introduces the natives to "Swing Music" and creates a "Swinging Sioux Band." The last listed title in the series was "Yip-Yip-Yippie," but it was a one shot cartoon without Betty.


In 1955, Betty's 110 cartoon appearances were sold to television syndicator U.M. & M TV Corporation in 1955, which was acquired by National Telefilm Associates (NTA) the following year. NTA was reorganized in the 1980s as Republic Pictures, which is presently a subsidiary of Viacom, the parent company owning Paramount. Ironically, Paramount, Boop's original home studio (via sister company Republic), now acts as theatrical distributor for the Boop cartoons they themselves originally released. Television rights are now handled by CBS Television Distribution, successor to various related companies, including Worldvision Enterprises, Republic, and NTA.

Betty Boop appeared in two television specials, "The Romance of Betty Boop" (1984) and "The Betty Boop Movie Mystery" (1989), as well as cameo appearances in television commercials. And while television revivals were conceived, nothing materialized to the degree originally planned.


While the animated cartoons of "Betty Boop" have enjoyed a remarkable rediscovery over the last 30 years, official home video releases have been limited to the VHS collector's set of the 1990s. In spite of continue interest, no official DVD releases have occurred to date (Lionsgate Home Entertainment, under license from Republic, owns the video rights to the Boop cartoons). Ironically, the image of Betty Boop has gained more recognition through the massive merchandising license launched by the heirs of Max Fleishcer, with audiences today unaware of Betty's place in cinema and animation history.

Betty as sex symbol

Betty Boop in Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle (1932).

Betty Boop is known as the first and one of the most famous sex symbols on the animated screen;[1][2] she was a symbol of the depression era, a reminder of the more carefree days of The Jazz age flapper. Her popularity was drawn largely from sophisticated adult audiences, and the cartoons, while seemingly surrealistic, contained many sexual/psychological elements, particularly in the "Talkartoon", Minnie the Moocher which featuring Cab Calloway and his orchestra. Minnie the Moocher is perhaps the one cartoon that defined Betty's character as a teenager of a modern era at odds with the old world ways of her parents.

Betty is at odds with her parents and opts to run away from home, only to get lost in a haunted cave with her boyfriend Bimbo. A ghostly walrus (rotoscoped from live-action footage of Calloway), sings Calloway's famous song "Minnie the Moocher", accompanied by several other ghosts and skeletons. This haunting performance sends the frightened Betty and Bimbo back to the safety of "home, sweet home". "Minnie the Moocher" was a huge success on two levels. It was a tremedous promotion for Calloway's subsequent stage appearances, and also established "Betty Boop" as a cartoon star. The eight Talkartoons that followed all starred Betty, leading her into her own series beginning in 1932. With the release of Stopping the Show in August of 1932, the Talkartoons were replaced by the Betty Boop series, which continued for the next seven years, with Betty being one of Paramount's top stars.[1] Bimbo is a cartoon dog created by Fleischer Studios. ...

Betty Boop is important to animation history for being the first cartoon character to fully represent a sexual woman. Other female cartoon characters of the same period showed their panties regularly, like Minnie Mouse, but were not fully defined in a woman's form. All other cartoon "girls" were merely clones of their male co-stars, with alterations in costume with the addition of eyelashes and a female voice. Betty Boop wore short dresses, high heels, and a garter belt. Her breasts were suggested with a low, contoured bodice that showed cleavage. In her cartoons, male characters tried to sneak peeks at her while she's changing, or simply walking along minding her own business. In Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle, she does the hula topless, wearing only a lei and a grass skirt, which she repeated in her cameo appearance in the first Popeye cartoon, "Popeye the Sailor" (1933). Her "Bamboo Isle" performance was also included in the short "Betty Boop's Rise to Fame", featuring a staged quasi-interview with studio head, Max Fleischer. Minnie redirects here. ... Hula is universally known as primarily a Hawaiian dance. ... Woman wearing a lei and making the shaka sign Lei is a Hawaiian word for a garland or wreath. ... For other uses, see Popeye (disambiguation). ...


There was however, a certain girlish quality to the character. She was drawn with a head bigger than normal for an adult, but normal for a baby. This suggested the combination of girlishness and maturity many people saw in the 'flapper' type which Betty Boop was supposed to represent.


While compromises on Betty's virtue were always a challenge, the animators kept her "pure" and girl-like. On screen, anyway. The studio's 1931 Xmas card featured Betty in bed with Santa Claus, winking at the viewer. Also in 1931, the Talkartoons 'Bimbo's Express' and 'Dizzy Red Riding Hood' were given distinctly 'impure endings'. Officially, she was only 16 years old according to a 1932 interview with Fleischer. Attempts to compromise her virginity were reflected in "Chess Nuts" (1931) and most importantly, "Boop-Oop-A-Doop" (1932). In this cartoon, Betty is a High Wire Performer in a circus. The villainous Ringmaster lusts for Betty as he watches her from below, singing "Do Something," a song previously performed by Helen Kane.


As Betty returns to her tent, the Ringmaster follows her inside and sensually massages her legs, surrounds her and threatens her job if she doesn't submit. This is perhaps one of the earliest portrayals of sexual harassment on the screen, and was very daring at a time when such subject matter was considered taboo. Betty begs the Ringmaster to cease his advances, as she sings "Don't take my Boo-Oop-A-Doop Away." Koko the Clown is outside of the tent, practicing his juggling and hears the struggle from inside the tent. He leaps in to save Betty's virtue, struggling with the Ringmaster who loads him into a cannon, firing it, thinking that he has sent the hero away, laughing with self-satisfaction. But Koko is hiding inside the cannon, and strikes the Ringmaster out cold with a mallet, returning with "the last laugh." Concerned about Betty's welfare, she answers in song, "No, he couldn't take my boop-oop-a-doop away!"


Betty Boop's Big Boss, however, wrong-foots the audience. After the usual menacing advances, there is a vast mobilization of outraged citizens, the Army, the Navy etc. to rescue Betty. The rescuers break in and discover Betty and the Big Boss happily embracing - it seems she likes this one after all! The cartoons closes with astonished exclamations of disgust.

Betty tamed

The Production Code censorship caused drastic changes to the character of "Betty Boop". No longer was she a carefree flapper, she became a husbandless housewife/career girl, wearing a fuller dress or skirt. For a few entries, she was given a boyfriend, "Freddie," who was introduced in "She Wronged Him Right"(1934), and appeared in five more cartoons. Next Betty was teamed with her cute puppy, "Pudgy", beginning with "Little Pal" (1934). The following year saw the addition of the eccentric inventor, "Grampy" who debuted in "Betty Boop and Grampy" (1935). While these cartoons were tame compared to her earlier appearances, their self-conscious wholesomeness was aimed at more of a juvenile audience, which contributed to the decline of the series. Much of this decline was also due to the lessening of Betty's role in the cartoons, which was dominated by her co-stars. This was a similar problem experienced with Walt Disney's "Mickey Mouse," who was becoming eclipsed by the popularity of Fleischer's biggest success, "Popeye." At the same time, the story formulas for the later "Betty Boop" cartoons made her less capable on her own, constantly dependent upon "Grampy" for the solutions to her problems. [2] The Production Code (also known as the Hays Code) was a set of industry guidelines governing the production of American motion pictures. ... For other uses, see Censor. ...


Being largely a musical novelty character, the animators struggled to keep Betty's cartoons interesting by casting her with popular comic strip characters such as "Henry," "The Little King", and "Little Jimmy" hoping to create additional spinoff series as with her pairing with "Popeye" in 1933. But none of these films generated new series. A Betty Boop comic strip by Max Fleischer was syndicated through King Features from 1934 through 1937. From 1984 through 1987, a revival strip, Betty Boop and Friends was produced by Brian Walker, Ned Walker, Greg Walker, and Morgan Walker. But as the culture was changing towards the end of The Great Depression, Betty's theatrical career clearly had come to an end in 1939.

Betty today

Betty Boop's films found a new audience when Paramount sold them for syndication in 1955. U.M.&M. and National Telefilm Associates were required to remove the original Paramount logo from the opening and closing as well as any references to Paramount in the copyright line on the main titles. However, the mountain motif remains on some television prints, usually with a U.M.&M. copyright line, while recent versions have circulated with the Paramount-Publix reference in cartoons from 1931. In the television industry (as in radio), syndication is the sale of the right to broadcast programs to multiple stations, without going through a broadcast network. ... Year 1955 (MCMLV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays the 1955 Gregorian calendar). ...


The original "Betty Boop" cartoons were in black and white. And as newer product made for television began to appear, her cartoons were soon retired, particularly with the arrival of color television in the 1960s. But Betty's film career saw a major revival in the release of "The Betty Boop Scandals of 1974", and became a part of the post 1960s counterculture movement. NTA attempted to capitalize on this with a new syndication syndication package, but there was no market for cartoons in black and white. As an answer, they had them remade cheaply in Korea, but were unable to sell them due largely to their sloppy production that belied the quality of the originals. Unable to sell them to television, they assembled a number of the color cartoons in compilation feature titled, "Betty Boop for President" to capitalize on the 1976 election. But it saw no major theatrical release, and resurfaced in 1981 on HBO under the title, Hurray for Betty Boop. Counterculture (also counter-culture) is a sociological word used to describe the values and norms of behavior of a cultural group, or subculture, that run counter to those of the social mainstream of the day,[1] the cultural equivalent of political opposition. ...


It was the advent of Home Video that created an appreciation for films in their original versions, and Betty was rediscovered again in Beta and VHS versions. The ever expanding cable television industry saw the creation of American Movie Classics, which showcased a selection of the original black and white "Betty Boop" cartoons in the 1990s, which led to an eight volume VHS set, "Betty Boop, the Definitive Collection." To date, no official DVD releases have been made in spite of the tremendous interest.

Marketers rediscovered Betty Boop in the 1980s, and "Betty Boop" merchandise has far outdistanced her exposure in films, with many not aware of her as a cinematic creation. Much of this current merchandise features the character in her popular, sexier form, and has become popular worldwide once again. The 1980s, rapper, Betty Boo (whose voice, image and name were influenced by the cartoon character) rose to popularity in the UK largely due to the "Betty Boop" revival. The 1980s refers to the years from 1980 to 1989, also called The Eighties.

There were brief returns to the theatrical screen. In 1988, Betty appeared after a 50 year absence with a cameo in the Academy Award-winning film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In 1993, animation director Jerry Rees, best known for his film The Brave Little Toaster, wrote and produced a new Betty Boop feature film for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Seventy-five percent of the film was storyboarded, but two weeks before voice recording was to begin, MGM switched studio chiefs and the project, tentatively called The Betty Boop Feature Script, was abandoned.

Ownership of the Boop cartoons has changed hands over the intervening decades due to a series of corporate mergers, acquisitions and divestitures (mainly involving Republic Pictures and the 2006 corporate split of parent company Viacom into two separate companies). As of 2008, Lions Gate Home Entertainment (under license from Paramount) holds home video rights and CBS Television Distribution retains television rights. Ironically, Paramount continues to hold theatrical distribution rights, although any sort of video or theatrical re-release has yet to be announced. But the "Betty Boop" character and trademark is currently owned by Fleischer Studios, with the merchandising rights licensed to King Features Syndicate.

The Betty Boop series continues to be a favorite of many critics, and the 1933 Betty Boop cartoon Snow White (not to be confused with Disney's 1937 film Snow White) was selected for preservation by the U.S. Library of Congress in the National Film Registry in 1994. Betty Boop's popularity continues well into present day culture, with references appearing in the comic strip Doonesbury, where the character B.D.'s busty girlfriend/wife is named "Boopsie" and the animated reality TV spoof Drawn Together, where Betty is the inspiration for Toot Braunstein.
