* {{Anvilicious}}: ''Be Human''
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The series is full of memorable songs, including the following;
** Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher" number, from the eponymous short.
** Cab Calloway's "The Old Man of the Mountain", once again from the eponymous short.
** "St. James Infirmiry Blues", sung by Cab Calloway in "Snow White".
** "You Gotta Have Pep", sung by Betty in "More Pep".
** The entire "Hells Bells" music number from "Red Hot Mamma".
** The "How'm I Doin? (hey hey)" number from "I've Heard".
** The title songs of the shorts "Mysterious Mose", "Barnacle Bill" and "Any Rags?"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Betty herself in the old Bimbo cartoons, and it was her popularity that caused her to ascend to stardom while leaving Bimbo ''(the main character!)'' to [[DemotedToExtra fade]] [[PutOnABus into]] [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome obscurity.]]
** 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!
* EsotericHappyEnding: In "Making Friends", Pudgy ends up doing exactly what Betty wanted him to do--"Go out and make friends with the world." Unfortunately for Betty, his newfound friends happen to be a batch of rascally wild animals who proceed to tear apart Betty's house upon arrival!
* 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.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: When Betty falls DownTheRabbitHole in the ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland''-inspired ''Betty in Blunderland'', she opens a jam jar, causing comedian Ed Wynn to pop out. Almost twenty years later, Disney's ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' would feature Ed Wynn voicing the Mad Hatter.
* {{Moe}}: Betty herself qualifies as this.
* MoralMyopia: ''Be Human'' was criticized for this; it showed that what the farmer is doing is horrible, but it's okay when he gets harshly punished for it.
* NightmareFuel: Oh GOD, don't get us started...
* 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.
** ReplacementScrappy: Is often seen as a very bland replacement of Betty's more vivid boyfriend, Bimbo the Dog.
*** Fearless Fred is also seen as this, being a very one dimensional heroic love interest to Betty.
* 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.
* ValuesDissonance: Betty is supposed to be a sex symbol, but she's also underage (she's sixteen).
