Betty Boop

Betty Boop was a popular cartoon character from the 1930's designed by Grim Natwick. She is most often seen wearing a short, red, strapless dress.

Censors would later strip Betty of most of her sex appeal in order to comply with the Motion Picture Production Code (Hays Code), a restrictive set of rules created in 1930 and put into effect in 1934. The Hays Code resulted in a decline in the character's popularity until a revival in the 1980's brought Ms. Boop back into the public eye. The code was heavily revised in 1966 and eventually replaced by a rating system.


"Steamboat Willie", the German solider captured by Captain Miller's Ranger squad, makes reference to Betty Boop while trying to show that he has an appreciation of American culture.
