Despite having been toned down in the mid-1930′s to appear more demure, Betty Boop became one of the most well-known and popular cartoon characters in the world. Created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick,  she originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop film series, which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.
