How it all Started (HERstory)
The Story behind the Icon
Inspired by the combined cultures and collective creativity of the diverse Jazz performers of the day, the character that would eventually become Betty Boop made her first cartoon appearance on August 9, 1930 as a dog-like character playing a bit role in the Fleischer Studios’ cartoon Dizzy Dishes. She sang in that first appearance but had no lines. She didn’t even have a name, but that didn’t stop Betty from stealing the show as she steadily developed human features and became the full-blown human Betty we know and love today.
For nearly a century the feisty and bold icon has sung, sashayed and “Boop-oop-a-dooped” past rules and conventions, unafraid to take risks or set trends. With her daring look and irresistible charm, Betty continues to inspire and attract fans from around the world with her sassy personality, short black hair and hoop earrings, with trademark red dress and lips.
As a lifelong lover of Betty Boop, Shay has always been inspired by her fierce and independent spirit. Shay was driven to create Black Betty Boop to immulate her personal enthusiasm and love for the icon.Through her partnership with Fleischer Studios, the original creators who produced Betty Boop, has allowed Shay to show-off an inclusive and diverse footprint of a lifelong icon.
