Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick.  Betty Boop made her first appearance on August 9, 1930, she became one of the most well-known and popular cartoon characters in the world. Although Clara Bow is often given as being the model for Boop, she actually began as a caricature of singer Helen Kane.

As a sex symbol

Betty Boop is regarded as one of the first and most famous sex symbols on the animated screen; she is a symbol of the Depression era, and a reminder of the more carefree days of Jazz Age flappers. Her popularity was drawn largely from adult audiences.  Betty Boop was unique among female cartoon characters because she represented a sexualized woman. Other female cartoon characters of the same period, such as Minnie Mouse, displayed 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’s changing or simply going about her business.  While the character was kept pure and girl-like onscreen, compromises to her virtue were a challenge.  Marketers rediscovered Betty Boop in the 1980s, and “Betty Boop” merchandise has far outdistanced her exposure in films, with many not aware of her as a cinematic creation. Much of this current merchandise features the character in her popular, sexier form, and has become popular worldwide once again. In 2010, Betty Boop became the official fantasy cheerleader for the upstart United Football League. She will also be featured in merchandise targeted towards the league’s female demographic.
