About Betty Boop and Fleischer Studios:
First introduced in 1930, Betty Boop was created by Max Fleischer for his “Talkartoons” series, the first “talkies” of animation, which Max’s company, Fleischer Studios, produced for Paramount. Mae Questel provided Betty’s distinctive voice. By 1932 Betty, considered to be the first and only female animated screen star, had taken the country by storm. Betty starred in more than 100 cartoons, 90 of which are included in the official “Betty Boop” series, which ended in 1939. Since then, Betty has appeared in dozens of hit movies, television specials, and commercials. She was the first cartoon character to be profiled by A&E’s “Biography” series.
As the worldwide exclusive licensing agent for Betty Boop, King Features works closely with Fleischer Studios (www.fleischerstudios.com) to keep Betty entertaining millions of fans and collectors worldwide. Betty Boop‘s popularity today shines through her prevalence in pop culture. She is one of the most popular and successful licensed characters in entertainment history, with licensees in the United States and around the world that produce quality products bearing Betty’s likeness in virtually every category.
