Betty Boop is a cartoon character originally created as a plump anthropomorphic French poodle, she first appeared on screen in 1931. Her face was caricatural modeled after the famous singer Helen Kane. The nameless character was only meant to have made a one-shot appearance, but the public loved the character so Paramount & the Fleischer Studios continued to develop the character. After the release of the 1930s 'Barnacle Bill', Betty had became slimmer and her design was tweaked a little.

In 1935, a comic strip was started. The Betty Boop cartoons ended by 1938.

She is still an icon and THE symbol of flappers of the Depression era and the Jazz Age.

Betty has a composition head, wood segmented body, black curly molded painted hair, side glancing to the top of her eyes, jointed, dressed in a green molded on dress, with green painted high heel shoes.
