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.
