Creator/FleischerStudios, '''''Betty Boop''''' was the mirror of the stereotypical [[TheFlapper flapper]], simultaneously looking for a good time and good-at-heart. In early cartoons, Betty's pals were WesternAnimation/KokoTheClown and Bimbo the dog; later on, Betty's grandpa Grampy, wild cousin Buzzy, and nonhumanized puppy Pudgy headlined episodes of their own.

* DerangedAnimation: The shorts from 1930-1933 had some very wacky animation, typical of the work of FleischerStudios. By the mid to late 30's, this was either toned down considerably or thrown out altogether.

* AWeightyAesop: In one episode involving Betty trying to exercise, a mishap involving her exercise machine makes her as skinny as a noodle, this makes Little Jimmy laugh in hysterics over her appearance. She ends up laughing as well, and then the furniture starts coming alive to laugh at her too. This laughing fit goes on to where they all start to get bigger in size! The furniture laughs even harder to the point of falling apart as Betty and Jimmy turn morbidly obese. To end the short they waddle dance and sing, "If you're thin, don't worry over that. Just begin to laugh and you'll grow fat!"

* AdaptationDyeJob: According to her one colored cartoon, Betty is a redhead. Her hair is colored black in all works afterwards because she's associated with dark-looking hair.



* {{Expy}}: The 50's ''WesternAnimation/HermanAndKatnip'' short "Of Mice and Magic" had a very blatant stand-in for Betty called "Louise" who was a mouse. Her design and mannerisms were basically the same as Betty's, but adjusted to have bits of a cartoon mouse -- also, there was the fact that she was voiced by Mae Questel, Betty's voice actress, who used her Betty voice for Louise.

** Although the studio's sole attempt to colorize her ("Poor Cinderella") revealed her to be--surprise!--a redhead. FridgeBrilliance in that she was partially modeled after the actress Clara Bow, who also had red hair, though many people didn't know it due to the black-and-white film.
* RogerRabbitEffect: Occured in a few of her shorts, such as ''Ha!Ha!Ha!''. Also, Betty made an appearance in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', the TropeNamer itself, almost 50 years later voiced by the same actress!
** Recent advertisements for Lancome's Betty Boop Mascara feature her interacting with real humans.
* {{Rotoscoping}}: Music/CabCalloway's dance moves were rotoscoped for his appearances in the cartoons, most famously as a dancing walrus. Calloway loved it and was said to have fallen out of his seat in convulsive laughter upon first viewing his animated ''Odobenus rosmarus'' counterpart.
** Calloway loved the cartoons that featured his songs ("Snow White", "Minnie The Moocher" and "The Old Man of the Mountain") for another reason as well; he had stated that his concerts enjoyed higher ticket sales in cities where the Betty Boop cartoons played before. Betty Boop became his "advance woman", introducing movie audiences to his musical style.

* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: In her only color theatrical cartoon "Poor Cinderella", Betty's eyes were colored green and her usual black hair was colored red. This was all to take advantage of the Cinecolor process used to color the cartoon.
