Betty Boop - First Cartoon Sex Symbol
Betty Boop made her original cartoon debut on August 9, 1930. The cartoon was titled "Dizzy Dishes" and was a part of cartoon series written by Max Fleisher. (Since then however she has taken on a life on her own.)
It is often mistakenly believed that Betty Boop was fashioned after American actress Clara Bow. In truth she is actually modeled after singer Helen Kane (picture to right).
Betty Boop is regarded as one of the first (and by far most famous) animated sex symbols.
She is known for wearing short dresses, showing cleavage, wearing high heels, a garter, and carrying around her little dog Pudgy (though he didn't begin to appear until 1934).
One of her sexier appearance was during her cameo appear in Popeye The Sailor in 1933 when she wears nothing but a hula skirt and a strategically placed lei to cover her chest.
More than 80 years later, Betty Boop is just as popular than ever! There are very few people who do not recognize this iconic character and this includes collectors and manufacturers who come out with new Betty Boop merchandise each year.
Due to her popularity, Betty Boop also makes for an awesome Halloween costume!
There are 3 looks she is most famous for.
- Her typical short red dress look
- Her longer red evening gown look
- and (maybe one of her sexist looks of all) the Betty Boop Biker Chick look.
There are a couple of other Betty Boop Costumes available as well, though they are slightly lesser known. These would include the
Betty Boop Sailor Look and the Betty Boop Aviator Costume.
Whichever look you decide to use, you can pretty much find everything you need on the internet.
