You know her, you love her, and now you can learn all about her! Betty Boop is stepping into the spotlight for Classic Couple Academy’s latest course offering - Betty Boop: Sexpot, Spinster, Icon.
The Queen of the Animated Screen, Betty Boop made her grand debut in the early 1930s, from the mind of animation pioneer Max Fleischer. Originally crafted as a canine in early Fleischer Studios shorts like Dizzy Dishes (‘30), it wouldn’t be long before Betty Boop traded in the dog ears for hoop earrings and nabbed the leading role in her own shorts as a fully human character. Throughout the 1930s and in many incarnations, Betty Boop dominated the animated screen as a true film star.
