Betty Boop, just a little history for ya
She has been around forever. A sex symbol that will never die. Created in the 1930's the character was brought to life during the depression to be a reminder of the more carefree jazz age. Betty Boop is the first cartoon character to fully represent a sexualized woman. Betty Boop wore short dresses, high heels, and a garter belt. Her breasts were suggested with a low, contoured bodice that showed cleavage.
Her head was drawn larger to give a sense of girlish ways to her.
She almost is valued as a real person. Do you remember ever not knowing of "Betty Boop"
