Betty Boop made her start as a human-like dog cartoon by Grim Natwick that was meant to be the female companion of Bimbo the dog. Mae West served as the inspiration for Betty's curvaceous figure, and her voice was modeled after singer Helen Kane, who wasknown at the time as the "Boop-Oop-a-Doop" girl. The actual voice of Betty was provided by May Questal, who went on to do the voice work of Olive Oyl in the popular "Popeye" cartoons.Eventually Betty lost her canine characteristicstrading her snout for a button nose and her floppy ears for gold hoop earrings. Betty was well on her way to becoming the doe-eyed, bow-mouthed beauty that is now known and loved the world over. With her jazz inspired spit curls, lace garter, black pumps, and barely-there wardrobe, Betty was far beyond her time. In the 1930s, the world was still extremely conservative, and until the invention of Betty, the only cartoons produced were Disney's squeaky-clean characters. Despite her racy appearance, America immediately fell inlove with Betty's coy, sexy image because she also managed to maintain an air of sweetness and innocence.Betty Boop's cartoon series lasted from 1930-1939, and a colorized version was re-released in the 60s and 70s. This re-release served as an instant revitalization of Boop-mania, which had truly begun in 1934 when Boophelia hit the stores with items like coats, cards, dolls, and watches. Today Betty Boop images appear on everything from clocks to shower curtains, personalized checks to nail polish, and everything in-between. Betty Boop was a charming vixen that had it allshe was sweet and funny, she could sing and dance, and because of this, she has managed to boop-oop-a-doop her way into the hearts of thousands of people all around the world.
