Betty Boop debuted 90 years ago with the August 9, 1930 release of
Dirty Dizzy Dishes.
Via YouTube is that introductory Dirty Dishes:
After the Hayes Code toned down Betty’s scandalous behavior her popularity never recovered, though she has remained a recognizable name and figure in pop culture. And she remains a bankable licensing character as King Features proves at Betty Boop’s homepage. The Betty Boop Facebook page has a celebration planned for 9am on August 9.
Happy Birthday Betty!
