Betty Boop made her first appearance on 9th August 1930 in the cartoon 'Dizzy Dishes, as a canine cabaret singer. She was originally designed by animator Grim Natwick.
Betty eventually became human in 1932 in 'Any Rags', her floppy poodle ears became Hoop earrings and her black canine nose became a girl's button like nose. In individual cartoons he was called 'Nancy Lee and 'Nan McGrew' usually as a girlfriend to Bimbo.
Betty Boop became the star of Talkartoons by 1932 and was given her own series, from this point on she was coronated 'The Quinn of the Animated Screen'.
The last original cartoons were released in 1939, but she was never to completely disappear, appearing in TV specials, commercials and cameo appearances.
