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).
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Betty herself is also Olive Oyl from Popeye. Both were usually voiced by Mae Questel.
  • What Could Have Been: Behold, storyboards and music from the cancelled Betty Boop animated film!
