The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2013 self-challenge. My tribute to a classic cartoon character (that I haven't actually seen in anything, but that's what research is for)!
Thirties were a diff'rent time
For cartoon characters
Like one was Dizzy Dishes, uh-uh, uh-uh
Part of the Talkartoon line
The seventh one, tha-at's right
It featured that dog fla-apper, uh-uh, uh-uh
Not bein' rude, she was an anthro poodle o-one time
But that soon got phased out within a-a yea-ea-ear
And within two she had assumed the focal spo-otlight
Tha-at's right, uh-oh

In 1932
The world had found Betty Boo-oop
May have just bee-een black and white, still
Set hearts aflame, it's true-ue-ue
"A perfect little she
Wait 'til you get a-a vie-iew
Of Sweet Betty-y" those were lines of
Her theme so-ong, stuck in your ears
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop

Her cartoons are quite the sight
So many surrea-eal things
While jazz is playin', uh-uh, uh-uh (back then, jazz meant creepiness, true)
Lost weight, so her friend laughs? Fine
She laughs as well, see
Furniture's lau-aughin'
Her weight's ama-assin', yeah-eah-eah
Her boyfriend's name is Bimbo, that's completely insane
He used to be the star, but now? Who-o ca-a-ares?
Because we're watchin' for what back then passed for chee-eesecake
Ca-an't lie, uh-oh (hey)

Since 1932
The world has loved Betty Boo-oop
Hays Code squashed a-appeal a slight bit (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
No point when sex can't oo-oo-ooze
"Can win you with a wink
Wait 'til you get a-a vie-iew
Of Sweet Betty-y" those were lines of (real li-ines)
Her theme so-ong, wedged in your ears
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop (with those giant ear hoops)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

She's a long-runner, all ri-ight
Cartoons reach ninety
Well, minus Talkartoons, fi-ine
Or those "Screen So-ongs" thi-ings
Spot in Roger Rabbit, ni-ice
Said she's still got i-it, true
That "Boop-oop-a-doop"
Or "Boop-boop-be-doo-oop"?
Yea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eah, he-ey (hey)

Since 1932 (since 1932)
The whole world loves Betty Boo-oop
Shakin' hips fro-om side-to-side, it's (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
A tad hypnotic, true-ue-ue
Animated screen queen (animated screen queen)
"Wait 'til you get a-a vie-iew
Of Sweet Betty-y" those were lines of
Her theme so-ong, stuck in your ears (in your ears)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop (Betty Boo-oop, oh-oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop (Betty Boo-oop's fi-ine)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop (ee-yeah-ee-yeah-heh)
Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop (ee-yeah-ee-yeah-heh-ee-yeah)

Whole lot of chic merchandi-ise (Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop)
Stickers and plates, please
Maybe a new film in si-ight (Betty Boo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oop)?
Please do not su-uck bri-icks
Still say she'll last throughout ti-ime (Betty Boo-oo-oo-oop)
My public domai-ain boo
Not all of it, true
The point still sticks, du-ude

To be perfectly fair, Ms. Boop's actual debut was in 1930, but '32 was the start of her own cartoon series. Also, it rhymes better.

Fun tribute to a classic character. You should do a Felix the Cat one too! Loved the line: "My public domai-ain boo"

I like Bettie Page better, but 555! Here's a photo of a C-130 with Betty Boop nose art:
