Betty Boop


When my wife was alive, she was a big fan of Betty Boop. Most of us growing up back when found Betty Boop to be funny and sexy. I have a tin sign with her picture on it in my retro style kitchen.

Betty Boop was described in a 1934 court case as "combin[ing] in appearance the childish with the sophisticated—a large round baby face with big eyes and a nose like a button, framed in a somewhat careful coiffure, with a very small body of which perhaps the leading characteristic is the most self-confident little bust imaginable".

The original Betty Boop animations were created in black and white. I have one or two on my YouTube channel. 

She was considered a sex symbol of animations and was popular with the adult audience. She always reminded me somewhat of Mae West. I came across this comic strip of her.

I created a coffee mug that I thought women would appreciate. I know my wife would get a kick out of it. You can check it out here Betty Boop Coffee Mug
