Classic Betty

I like Betty Boop, but more specifically, I like classic Betty.

For the most part I don’t mind old ideas or stories being given a new spin, twist, or retelling, but none of the new Betty stuff is as good as Max Fleischer’s original American sweetheart. I feel like Betty is misunderstood by the masses, a feeling I often have concerning myself. She’s a cartoon, but not necessarily for kids, even though she’s not a bad girl. I think some of my stories and even some of my characters are like this and I’m not speaking specifically of my Eternal Curse Series.

I’d love to see classic Betty back on the big screen. Her cameo in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” was cute, but this star deserves to shine on her own.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

  1. Thanks for stopping by and undertanding. There seems to be little middle ground in the area of cartoons these day. They are eaither made for kids or made for adults, I think we should be able to have something in between.
