Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Surprisingly given the time, pretty much any time Betty is hit on by creepers or touched by them against her will, that's portrayed as being very wrong, even if she is flirty by nature. In general, it's not implied she's "asking for it".

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Next to figures like [[WhoFramedRogerRabbit Jessica Rabbit]], it's hard to imagine a time when Betty Boop was considered genuinely racy and provocative. This is lampshaded in ''Rabbit'' itself, where Betty (who is now waiting tables) nostalgically notes that "I still got it!" next to one of Jessica's performances.

* FridgeBrillance: In "Red Hot Mamma", Betty wanders into hell and proceeds to sing the jazzy "Hell's Bells". This could have been a subtle satire on how Jazz was considered "the devil's music" at the time.

** Betty is supposed to be a sex symbol, but she's also underage (she's sixteen).
*** On the other hand, Max Fleischer once admitted to being indecisive about Betty's age.

* SeasonalRot: Once the Hays Office cracked down on the series in the mid 30s and Paramounts management forced Fleischer to make their works more family friendly, the Betty series went into a steep decline, with the shorts becoming much more dull and generic, and the Fleischers inability to add any interesting new elements to the series (barring Grampy) didn't help.

** Betty's grandpa, Grampy, who was a minor recurring character, is quite well liked by fans of the series, and considered one of the few good things to come out of the later Betty Boop shorts, mainly due to his off the cuff inventing nature and jovial personality making him very likable and gag friendly. He even headlined a ColorClassics short "Christmas Comes But Once A Year" by himself!
