The Betty Boop Cartoon Character is My Favorite

The one “person” that stands out as my all time favorite is the Betty Boop cartoon character. There’ a good reason for this. Betty Boop represented a new typre of personality in the film world. And she managed to do this while being just a cartoon, as well! By this, I mean that Betty Boop was an independent woman who knew how to rely on her own resources. This was quite a break from the helpless “Olive” character found in the Popeye cartoons.

The Betty Boop cartoon character, in many ways represented a step towards the liberalization for the female as depicted in the media. Much of this had to do with the popularity of “flappers” in the 1920s.
