** The titular character in "The Little King" ditches a boring opera he was attending with his wife and winds up at a theater where Betty is perfoming. One of the first things he does is buy all of a vendor's pretzels and proceeds to hand them out to the crowd for free.

* FridgeHorror: BettyBoop may be considered fetish fuel to some, but many have pointed out that anyone with a head that big would [[NeckSnap snap her neck]] the instant she tries to stand up, and her [[UncannyValley body proportions would look absolutely horrifying]] if she existed in real life. An example can be found [[http://www.destinationcreation.com/informatives/?p=505 here.]]

* TheScrappy: Pudgy the puppy, Betty's pet dog from the later shorts. He is widely disliked by fans of the cartoons, mainly for his overbearingly cloying nature and lack of any personality, and having many shorts centered around or co starring him didn't do the series any favors.

*** Fearless Fred is also seen as this, being a very one dimensional heroic love interest to Betty.
