Betty Boop – Boop Oop a Doop clip (1986)

January 3, 2011

A documentary showing the voice of Betty Boop, Mae Questel, singing “Please don’t take my boop-oop-a-doop away” followed by an analysis of some of the elements that made Betty in to a sex symbol for adults whilst remaining innocent entertainment for children. Such things as a single drawing in a sequence where her dress was blown up by the wind, showing more detail in a certain area than the other drawings, giving a subliminal message. The animators also used backlight behind a flimsy dress to disrobe her, although outright nudity was not allowed.
