Betty Boop appeared first in 1930, on a scene from the cartoon "Dizzy Dishes". In a cabaret, she sings a song ending with "Boop Boop a Doop", which quickly became legendary. In those days, she did not yet have a name. Without realizing it, Max Fleischer and his brothers created one of the greatest animated characters in history. Initially, this talented designer imagined a sensual silhouette with a truffle instead of the nose and long dying ears. The figure of this character evolved from film to film until she became a young woman in her own right, bearing the name "Betty Boop". This one quickly became famous all over the world.
In the following years, she made a series of appearances in the animations of the production company Fleischer. During her screen debut, she played the role of Bimbo's girlfriend, a response to Disney's "Mickey" animation. Later, she becomes a true iconic character and follows the main roles.
Among the films in which she plays an imposing role are Betty Boop's Rise to Fame, Stop that Noise, A language all my own, Rhythm on the reservation, etc. Betty will also have her role in a color animation "Poor Cinderella". It is also displayed with new characters such as Pudgy (a small dog) and Grampy (a scientist). Fifty years later, Betty Boop appears in "Who Wants the Skin of Roger Rabbit" where she plays the role of a cabaret waitress and sings Jessica Rabbit.
Betty Boop is one of the first female human characters in the cartoon world. Indeed, it brings with it a real revolution in a world entirely dedicated to the male gent. It was this innovative spirit that touched his audience. She melts every heart, from her first appearance with her sexy footwork, her legendary cut, her big doe eyes, her luscious lips and her famous baby voice.
But what image of femininity does Betty Boop convey? In fact, Max Fleischer wanted to illustrate through Betty Boop, the difficulty for a young woman of the 1930s to fit in and live in a society where the male gent is placed on a pedestal. Betty Poop played the role of a New Yorker who struggled to survive the Great Depression. To pay her rent, she puts herself in the shoes of many trades: cashier, waitress, secretary... She became famous for her rather special character traits. She cultivates the American dream and faces the challenges of life with optimism and courage.
Through this emblematic character of American animation, Max Fleischer wanted to promote the rights of women in society and denounce sexual harassment. Indeed, Betty Boop is often surrounded by fat and ugly old men who try to harass her. She defends herself remarkably well against the brutality of men, which builds on this feminist vision that her creator wanted to convey. She also shared her posters with famous jazz singers, Cab Calloway and Louis Armstrong, which defied the racial segregation of that era.
Beyond being just a sexy character, Betty Boop was one of the first animated characters to become aware of the world around her. Betty Boop's animations illustrated real-life problems so much that the scenes were sometimes violent. Considered too sexy, Betty Boop extends her skirt and wears only garters a few years later. It gradually disappears from the small screen with the appearance of Disney animated films like Snow White, which invited more to dream. In fact, people needed reassurance before the war.
It was from 1934 that Betty Boop appeared in store windows in the form of various products: coats, cups, watches, soaps, toys, bombshells, notebook covers, cards, handkerchiefs, etc. At that time, Betty Boop dolls were also famous. In fact, more than 500 licenses around the world produced items bearing his image. She also appears in numerous advertisements of different brands: Chevrolet, Coca Cola, Italian mineral water, as well as a Japanese bank.
After disappearing from the screen a few years after her arrival, Betty Boop made her comeback in the 80s and 90s. She reappears on the screens, true to her image, at the same time sweet, characteristic and sexy. In the history of animated films, it can be said that no character has succeeded in dethroning Betty Boop as the queen of sensuality. It is also associated as the true image of the sex symbol in animated cinema.
She will soon blow out her 90 candles. She embodies the perfect image of a vintage character par excellence. It is also the representation of the Pin-Up of the 30s, true Marilyn Monroe of the world of cartoon. Almost a century after her first screen broadcast, Betty Boop or "BB" has lost none of her beauty and strong personality. Over the years, she has become a representation of a revolutionary young woman.
As stated above, Betty Boop is a young woman with a strong personality who stands out for her optimism and courage. She remains enthusiastic, whatever the circumstances. His rebellious character is illustrated by his rather provocative dress. Indeed, she defies the rules of society by wearing short skirts, bust dresses, garters, etc.
It also represents all the qualities a woman can have. Indeed, she appears as a cabaret singer, a nurse, a secretary, and even a teacher. It thus causes a new turning point for the future of women. It promotes the American dream, which was once inaccessible to women. Betty Boop speaks for these women of the shadows who are far too ignored to defy men's grip on them.
Betty Boop is a true free electron in society where a woman does not have the right to live as she wants, to have dreams and to fend for herself. Moreover, this very liberal image of women has never been so promoted. Unlike other female cartoon characters, Betty Boop doesn't need a "Prince Charming" or a "brave knight" to save her. She fights alone and manages with courage and perseverance. She is free as the wind and lives life the way she wants.
Betty Boop is characterized by this particular form of carelessness. No matter what the situation, she keeps her cool and her head held high. In her day, she represented a very different image of the traditional woman. Betty Boop acts, but does not accept to suffer. Far beyond the perfect housewife who was erected in the 1950s, Betty Boop breaks the codes and puts herself in the shoes of a determined and elusive hard-working woman.
Betty Boop is also known for her unwavering independence. Although she did not escape the fetishization and objectification of women by men, she managed to use it as a weapon.
Betty Boop is also the perfect representation of the "child woman", with her very childish head and her sublime body as a woman. Contrary to the image we wished to have of the woman, she knew how to live her own dreams and follow her impulses.
Isn't Betty Boop one of the origins of girl power? Indeed, she perfectly embodies the devastating femininity that captivates men, making them powerless in the face of her impressive beauty.
In short, this animated character has marked the history of the cartoon. The small BB has been able to stand out for its authenticity. It stands out and traces the story of the woman from a more realistic point of view, far from fairy tales and princesses. Many women have managed to recognize themselves through this icon of American cartoon. It has revealed over the decades a political significance of pin-ups that has long been ignored.
It is all these characters, these forces of personalities and above all this way of being that made Betty Boop survive the test of time. It is now even more famous than ever. Beyond a simple cartoon character, Betty Boop reflects a struggle, a story, a vision, a policy, a philosophy...
