voice for King Syndicate worldwide); Cindy Robinson (official-commercials). Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer, with help from A caricature of a Jazz Age flapper, Betty Boop was described in a court the leading characteristic is the most self-confident little bust imaginable". Tiny the T-Rex saying "I have a big head and little arms" during a scene from the film Meet the Robinsons. A bucket of cold water poured straight on my head. A nice hard slap across the face (ok, maybe that's a little far). Motivational Quotes: “I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.

This haunting performance sends the frightened Betty and Bimbo back to the safety of home. The eight Talkartoons that followed all starred Betty, leading her into her own series beginning in With the release of Stopping the Show Augustthe Talkartoons were replaced by the Betty Boop series, which continued for the next seven years.
Other female cartoon characters of the same period, such as Minnie Mousedisplayed their underwear or bloomers regularly, in the style of childish or comical characters, not a fully defined woman's form. Many other female cartoons were merely clones of their male co-stars, with alterations in costume, the addition of eyelashes, and a female voice. Betty Boop wore short dresses, high heels, a garter, and her breasts were highlighted with a low, contoured bodice that showed cleavage. In her cartoons, male characters frequently try to sneak peeks at her while she is changing or simply going about her business.
In Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle, she does the hula wearing nothing but a leistrategically placed to cover her breasts, and a grass skirt. This was repeated in her first cameo appearance in Popeye the Sailor There was, however, a certain girlish quality to the character. She was drawn with a head more similar to a baby's than an adult's in proportion to her body.
This suggested the combination of girlishness and maturity that many people saw in the flapper type, which Betty represented.
While the character was kept pure and girl-like onscreen, compromises to her virtue were a challenge. The studio's Christmas card featured Betty in bed with Santa Claus, winking at the viewer. Officially, Betty was only 16 years old, according to a interview with Fleischer although in The Bum Bandit, she is portrayed as a married woman with many children and with an adult woman's voice, rather than the standard "boop-boop-a-doop" voice.
When she rejects him, he pulls her out of the ropes, drags her off to the bedroom and says, "I will have you". The bed, however, runs away and Betty calls for help through the window.
Bimbo comes to her rescue, and she is saved before anything happens. In Boop-Oop-a-Doop, Betty is a high-wire performer in a circus. The ringmaster lusts for Betty as he watches her from below, singing "Do Something", a song previously performed by Helen Kane. As Betty returns to her tent, the ringmaster follows her inside and sensually massages her legs, surrounds her, and threatens her job if she does not submit.
Koko the Clown is practicing his juggling outside the tent and overhears the struggle inside. He leaps in to save Betty, struggling with the ringmaster, who loads him into a cannon and fires it.
Koko, who remained hiding inside the cannon, knocks the ringmaster out cold with a mallet, while imitating the ringmaster's laugh. Koko then inquires about Betty's welfare, to which she answers in song, "No, he couldn't take my boop-oop-a-doop away". According to Jill Harness of Mental Flossthese portrayals of Boop fighting off sexual harassment on the animated screen made many see her as a feminist icon.
While Kane had risen to fame in the late s as "The Boop-Oop-A-Doop Girl", a star of stage, recordings, and films for Paramount, her career was nearing its end by Paramount promoted the development of Betty Boop following Kane's decline. The case was brought in New York in Although Kane's claims seemed to be valid on the surface, it was proven that her appearance was not unique.
Meet the Robinsons () - Quotes - IMDb
On April 19, Fleischer testified that Betty Boop purely was a product of the imaginations of himself and detailed by members of his staff. Testimony revealed that Kane had witnessed an African American performer, Baby Esther — whose name was given in the trial as Esther Jones, which was possibly a pseudonym for Gertrude Saunders,  using a similar vocal style in an act at the Cotton Club nightclub in Harlem, some years earlier, although she was presumed to be dead at the time of the trial.
McGoldrick ruled, "The plaintiff has failed to sustain either cause of action by proof of sufficient probative force". The ruling concluded that the "baby" technique of singing did not originate with Kane.
However, the content of her films was affected by the National Legion of Decency and the Production Code of The Production Code of imposed guidelines on the Motion Picture Industry and placed specific restrictions on the content films could reference with sexual innuendos. This greatly affected the Betty Boop cartoons. The transformation from pre-Code to post-Code No longer a carefree flapper from the date the code went into effect on July 1,Betty became a spinster housewife or a career girl who wore a fuller dress or skirt.
Additionally, as time progressed, the curls in her hair gradually decreased. She also eventually stopped wearing her gold bracelets and hoop earrings, and she became more mature and wiser in personality, compared to her earlier years. Right from the start, Joseph Breenthe new head film censor, had numerous complaints. The Breen Office ordered the removal of the suggestive introduction which had started the cartoons because Betty Boop's winks and shaking hips were deemed "suggestive of immorality".
For a few entries, Betty was given a new human boyfriend named Freddie, who was introduced in She Wronged Him Right The following year saw the addition of the eccentric inventor Grampywho debuted in Betty Boop and Grampy While these cartoons were tame compared to her earlier appearances, their self-conscious wholesomeness was aimed at a more juvenile audience, which contributed to the decline of the series.
Much of the decline was due to the lessening of Betty's role in the cartoons in favor of her co-stars. This was a similar problem experienced during the same period with Walt Disney 's Mickey Mousewho was becoming eclipsed by the popularity of his co-stars Donald DuckGoofyand Plutonot to mention Fleischer's biggest success, Popeye. However, none of these films generated a new series. The last Betty Boop cartoons were released inand a few made attempts to bring Betty into the swing era.
In her last appearance, Rhythm on the Reservation Betty drives an open convertible, labeled "Betty Boop's Swing Band", through a Native American reservation, where she introduces the people to swing music and creates a "Swinging Sioux Band".
