Betty Boop was one of the most popular cartoon characters of the 1930's.

Betty Boop make her way to the silver screen in the Max Fleischer cartoon short called "Dizzy Dishes" on August 8th, 1930.

Since then, Betty Boop cartoons have been captivating audiences for over 70 years with her innocent start out as the bubbly bombshell that we know and love today.

Created by animator Max Fleischer, the cartoon series was know for its overt sexual overtones, but was accepted, and even endured.

Betty Boop was a dog!

In fact, at the start of her career, BETTY BOOP WAS A DOG.

Betty Boop cartoon movieYes, you read that right— a dog! It was only after appearances in several Fleischer cartoons that she eventually shed her canine ears in 1932’s "Any Rags" and assumed a human shape. And what a shape! With her ample curves and trademark sultry sway.

Betty Boop characterized a sexuality common to the depression a paying audience. Oftentimes, the occasional breeze would be known to lift Betty’s tiny dress or accidentally force her top off-- much to the shock of viewers. And it wasn’t just the audience that found itself mesmerized by Betty.

Everything and everyone in the Fleischer cartoons fell for her. Lecherous ringmasters, boorish bosses, and a whole myriad of male cartoons attempted to get close to "The Boop."

But as the years passed and the social climate changed, Betty Boop’s sexy look faded and gave way to a more toneddown, if not less exciting, appearance.

But today, in no matter what form she comes, Betty Boop is and will always be an animation classic. Experience the thrill and joy Betty brings to the screen with this special collection of her greatest moments (presented in chronological order) and prepare to join the millions who’ve fallen for her charms.

Betty Boop 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.

Betty Boop 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 which nevertheless became a trademark for Betty Boop.

In April 1934, Helen Kane launched a major lawsuit against Max Fleischer and Paramount Productions for the "deliberate caricature" that produced "unfair competition" that exploited her personality and image.

In 1955, Betty Boop's 110 cartoons were sold to a television syndicator and 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. Source Wikipedia: Betty Boop.
