VOTD: Rose McGowan Is Betty Boop
Despite having been toned down in the mid-1930’s to appear more demure, Betty Boop became one of the most well-known and popular cartoon characters in the world. Created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick, she originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop film series, which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.
According to Wikipedia, in 1993 there were plans for an animated feature film of Betty Boop but those plans were later canceled. The musical storyboard scene of the proposed film can be seen online. The finished reel consists of Betty and her estranged father performing a jazz number together called “Where are you?”. Jimmy Rowles and Sue Raney provide the vocals for Betty and Benny Boop.
That film never happened but now Funny or Die has created a faux trailer for a Betty Boop featured starring Rose McGowan as the titular character, and its fantastic. Watch the video below.
