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?"
Ensemble Darkhorse: 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 fade into obscurity.
Fetish Fuel Station Attendant: Betty Boop pretty much revolves around this. She's possibly one of the earliest cartoon sex symbols.
Fridge Horror: Betty Boop may be considered fetish fuel to some, but many have pointed out that anyone with a head that big would snap her neck the instant she tries to stand up, and her body proportions would look absolutely horrifying if she existed in real life. An example can be found here.
Jumping the Shark: Did this when The Hays Code stepped in.
Moe: Betty herself qualifies as this.
Moral Myopia: 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.
Nightmare Fuel: Oh GOD, don't get us started...
