Betty Boop-oop-a-dooped her way to the silver screen in the Max Fleischer short Dizzy Dishes on August 8th, 1930. Since then, she's been captivating audiences for over 70 years with her innocent eyes, bodacious body, and curvaceous hips. But she didn't start out as the bubbly bombshell that we know and love today. In fact, at the start of her career, BETTY WAS A DOG. Yes, 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 characterized a sexuality common to the depression era when anything was used to attract a paying audience. Often, 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's sexy look faded and gave way to a more toned-down, if not less exciting, appearance. But today, in no matter what form she comes, Betty is and will always be an ANIMATION CLASSIC.
