The REAL Betty Boop Was A Black Woman! | by Tamara Mitrofanova | ILLUMINATION | Medium

Betty Boop, a powerful symbol of carefree, unashamed sexuality. She is an image molded from the free and easy Flapper Era with all its energetic vices. Everybody knows Betty Boop but very little of…

Great dis-ambiguation and the BettyBoop lawsuit, at the link.

This article is about Baby Esther Lee Jones. Not to be confused with Little Esther Phillips. See Gertrude Saunders for the originator of Boop-Boop-a-Doop. You can check out a scat-singing timeline here. Footage of Jones scatting and baby-talk singing and other evidence given in court is what helped Justice Edward J. McGoldrick rule in favor of the Fleischer Studios. Which was that Helen Kane's singing style was most common to a number of "Boop-a-Doopers" even before Helen had claimed she had…
