Trivia:

The New York-based Questel, who played Olive Oyl and Betty Boop, refused to relocate with the Fleischer Studios to Miami in 1938. The Betty Boop series ended in 1939 and Margie Hines voiced Olive for the next several years. Questel resumed the role of Olive in 1944, after Paramount reorganized the animation company as Famous Studios and moved it back to NYC. See more »
