How it all Started (HERstory)
In the heart of a young girl named Shay, a profound love for the iconic character Betty Boop blossomed. She admired how Betty Boop epitomized femininity, power, and unwavering confidence. However, Shay yearned for a representation that resembled her own brown complexion. Determined to see Black women shine in the same radiant light, Shay adorned her entire room with Betty Boop, fervently hoping that one day this beloved character would reflect her own beautiful identity.

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.
