Trivia / Betty Boop

  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: While Betty's "Boop Oop A Doop" Catch-Phrase is sung in some of the opening titles (which was dropped later in the series), a fan might be surprised to find that it is very rarely said in the actual cartoons.
  • Cash Cow Franchise: Betty Boop still appears on a lot of merchandise, despite the fact that a large number of the people buying the merchandise have probably never watched a Betty Boop cartoon in their lives (and probably would freak out if they saw any of her pre-Hays Code stuff).
  • What Could Have Been: Behold, storyboards and music from the cancelled Betty Boop animated film!
  • Urban Legend of Zelda: There is a viral hoax that Betty was based off of a black woman named Esther Jones. While there is a basis to this, the photo accompanied with the hoax is not of Esther Jones. It's actually a modern day cosplay from 2008.
