Betty Boop (Boop-Boop-a-Doop Girl) by Ving Fuller & Bud Counihan (0100-) 1st Appearance July 23, 1934 - Betty Boop was created based on a real-life rags-to-riches 1920's stage actress named Helen Kane.  Kane's impish style which made her attractive to audiences was first translated sensationally into animated cartoons by the great Max Fleischer.   Evolving from a dog into a movie star,  the popularity of the cartoons would give King Features a good reason to get Betty onto the sunday comics page in 1934.   The strip was entirely a gag strip which revolved around Betty's antics on her many movie sets.  Throughout her 3-year run, Betty would show the bold-faced Marilyn-like sexuality that captivated the public.   As flapper tastes waned in the late 1930's,  so did the popularity of Betty.   But Betty would return as the nostalgia icon she is today.  You can see Betty's short-skirted figure in virtually every novelty store in the country.   It is that nolstalgia tie-in that drives the popularity of her comics.  Betty's sundays are considered very high premium rivaling the best titles in comics.  Sundays which were offered as tabs, sell very well at high premium.  Dailies sell even better and are very difficult to find.
