A caricature of a Jazz Age flapper, 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." Betty Boop appeared as a supporting character in 10 cartoons as a flapper girl with more heart than brains.
In individual cartoons, she was called "Nancy Lee" or "Nan Mc Grew" – derived from the 1930 Helen Kane film Dangerous Nan Mc Grew – usually serving as a girlfriend to studio star, Bimbo.
Within a year, Betty made the transition from an incidental human-canine breed to a totally human female character.
While much credit has been given to Grim Natwick for her creation, her transformation into the cute cartoon girl was due to the work of Berny Wolf, Seymour Kneitel, “Doc” Crandall, Willard Bowsky, and James “Shamus” Culhane..
By the release of Any Rags Betty Boop was forever establish as a human character.
Her floppy poodle ears became hoop earrings, and her black poodle nose became a girl's button-like nose.
Betty's voice was first performed by Margie Hines, and was later performed by several different voice actresses, including Kate Wright, Bonnie Poe, Ann Rothschild (also known as Little Ann Little), and most notably, Mae Questel.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
