Betty Boop Forced to Hide Her Legs
Although Betty Boop’s great legs carried her far, they also got her in trouble. n 1934, the Motion Pictures Producers and Distributors Association rode in on its high horse and began enforcing a set of moral guidelines that policed every hemline in cinema. Betty’s popularity began to disappear along with her cleavage, and Fleischer Studios soon saw the funny papers as a loophole. The Betty Boop comic strip ran from 1934 to 1937, and was later revived in the 1980s through Betty Boop and Felix. Her signature garter, which was removed, was brought back by popular demand.
