About Betty Boop
Betty Boop was created by Max Fleischer in the 30’s who based his animation off of a real woman named Helen Kane. Even though she was as simple as a cartoon character, Betty Boop made a huge impact on the world. Her style and personality is a clear representation of a flapper girl but with a little more heart and sass! She has an unmatched look that childish, yet sophisticated all at once.
Betty Boop appears on her own, with friends, or even in other comics with other popular characters like Felix the Cat. She was originally drawn in black and white but was later created with color. That’s when we all found out Betty Boop wears an iconic red dress for her outfit! She was created to remind everyone that life can be carefree and doesn’t need to revolve around war and violence. We can all take a page out of her book, or at least turn her into our next cosplay!
