Happy Birthday, Betty! You’ve been one busy lady and this video says it all. Just look at all you’ve been up to this year!
For those of you who may not know, today is a very big day for Miss Boop. She’s celebrating her first appearance in “Dizzy Dishes,” one of her “Uncle” Max Fleischer’s “Talkartoons” — the first “talkies” in the animated cartoon world — which Max’s company, Fleischer Studios, created for Paramount. After her debut, Betty Boop quickly evolved into a curvaceous Jazz-Age flapper who captured the popular imagination and of course, fame followed. Dressed in a figure-hugging frock and thigh-high garter, Betty Boop went on to star in her own “Betty Boop” cartoon series, tapping into the edgy spirit of the times. Through the decades, her popularity has spanned film and television, fashion and music.
Today, the feisty, wide-eyed and vivacious icon remains in the limelight as The Original Sass Symbol – as popular as ever the world over in this new Digital Age.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, we’re kicking off Betty’s Birthday Bash with a month-long sale in the Official Betty Boop Online Store powered by ZAZZLE. Fans get 25% OFF all Betty Boop merchandise when they use the promo code “ZBETTYBOOP25” (valid through the end of August 2017). And be sure to be on the lookout for more fun promotions and sweepstakes coming down the pike this month.
