Betty Boop Salutes America

" Boop-Boop-a-Doop" has been an American icon since the early 1900's believe it or not! Which is why we wanted to combine the two with Betty Boops Salutes America! History Lesson for today: Betty Boop was first created as a dog character and appeared as the girl friend of another dog named Bimbo. Betty's figure was modeled after Mae West's and her singing style taken from Helen Kane the "Boop-Boop-a-Doop" Girl. Betty Boop made her debut as a sexy canine cabaret singer. In 1931 Betty's friends Koko the Clown and Pudgy, Bimbo's replacement, were introduced. Betty Boop evolved into her own with "Betty Co-Ed" when she shed her dog identity and the long ears became earrings. Betty Boop's beginnings were quite risqué and ahead of her time as gusts of wind raised her skirt long before Marilyn Monroe. By 1932 Betty was considered to be the first and only female animated screen star who could do it all - Drama, Musicals and Comedy. Betty Boop had a flare all her own, she could be daring and assertive while keeping an air of innocence.

With Betty Boop's background and not to mention the pin-ups on World War II planes, Is it any wonder that the two can work together simultaneously? With our history lesson in tow, it is now time to pay tribute to America, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!!!

We have a wonderful tribute line-up for you today with imaginative crafters to pay homage to America with Betty Boop's assistance saluting on America's birthday, July 4th!
