Remember Betty Boop...?

My mother used to cut out paper dolls of Betty for my sisters a long time ago. She actually was pretty good at drawing Betty Boop paper dolls, so she made a lot of them for the girls.

Funny how many memories like that can come back all at once, isn't it? Maybe it was due to my Sister "B" from North Carolina coming down to visit with Mom for a couple of weeks. Anyway, I thought we would celebrate her visit with a couple of Betty Boop 'toons

I remember from my childhood some of the music that was associated with the Betty Boop character. I have no idea why it seems to stick in my mind today, but again, it may be due to B's visit. Of course, anytime you start recalling old memories, no telling what may pop up, ya know?

Ya know, ol' Betty was pretty racy for her day! Wonder how many times she got scolded by the censors? Quite a few, I'll bet!

I'm gonna ask my Sisters if they remember Betty! I'll bet they do!

Coffee out on the patio this morning. Baby Sis brought some brownies over yesterday when she came over to visit Mom and "B". I do love those brownies!

They were fun to watch, Mr. Hermit!
I remember playing with paper dolls.
When we couldn't afford to buy the books, we would make them from old magazines and catalogs.
Brownies are good - haven't had them in a while!

I was just thinking the same thing about her little maid outfit. Can't believe they let that go.
Oh well it still is clearner than the stuff they watch these days.

Patio it is.

Hey Phyllis...
Boy, my sisters used to play with paper dolls for hours at a time. That was probably why Mom made them!

These brownies are good, believe me!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Jo...
I reckon that dirty back then was still cleaner than today, for thew most part!

Thanks, sweetie, for the visit this morning!

Hey Dizzy..
I know a few folks that still like Betty! Guess some fans just never give up.

Thanks, buddy, for coming over today!

Hey momahen...
I'll bet that somewhere around Mom's house is a box with paper dolls or a book of uncut paper dolls!

Guess some things are worth hanging on to, even if it's just for the memories!

Thanks for the visit today!

I am a third generation Betty Boop fan both my mother and great aunt (whom I never met) love her.

Thank you for the cartoons this afternoon.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane, HJ, as always these were fun to watch. Ms Boop was certainly ahead of her time.
