Betty Boop made her first appearance as a cartoon character, developed by Max Fleischer, in the early 1930s.
She quickly became one of America’s most popular animated sweethearts with her appealing round baby face, big eyes and curvaceous figure. Despite having to be toned down in the mid-1930s so as to appear more demure, she became one of the best-known and popular cartoon characters in the world.
Now in the twenty-first century with her popularity still strong, internationally-renowned pop artist Romero Britto has taken this iconic character and applied his talents to a new range of gift products for Enesco: Betty Boop by Britto. Her trademark flirty, coquettish poses are set to dazzle this century’s audience too!
Each of the figurines, mugs, tumblers and plaques are decorated in the vibrant colours and bold designs that we have come to associate with Britto.
The figurines show the heroine in some of her trademark flirty poses — coquettish portrayals of her in a Santa outfit and three Christmas hanging ornaments even show her as an angel! Betty’s pet dog, Pudgy is also featured on the product and the mugs, tumblers and wall plaques, make captivating gifts, seasonal and general.
