Betty Boop is riding a Harley-Davidson

Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer with contributions from animator Grim Natwick among others. She originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop series of films which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures. Betty Boop has also been featured in comic strips and mass merchandising.

And now, Betty Boop is riding a Harley-Davidson, the Road King Classic of Gary France, who is riding a epic journey through the US.

With her overt sexual appeal, Betty was a hit with film-goers, and despite having been toned down in the mid-1930s to appear more demure, Betty Boop became one of best known cartoon characters in the world and remains popular today.

Clara Bow

The character was modeled on superstar actress Clara Bow, whose sweet and seductive baby-doll looks was a well established marquee at the time, and the choice of name for the cartoon, is built on Clara Bow’s three syllable name.

I send a unit of my Garmin Zumo 660 chromes cover to Gary in the USA as a sincere “Thank You” for his very interesting daily blogs about his trip. In another of his reports (get Your Kicks…) Betty Boop already appeared in the background:

I am worried how to start the day once Gary is back to the UK an nothing new is posted….
