Betty Boop Official Website
The Official Betty Boop Website is a site which was launched on the internet several years ago. The old website used to feature a forum, a store and several Betty Boop flash games. A new website was constructed in 2012. An even newer website was then launched in 2015. This time King Features partnered up with Amazon. You can find out more about the history of Betty Boop's website here.

12 Facts You May Not Have Known About Betty Boop
Betty Boop was featured in a video by Comic Alliance with spot on results. The only information left out of the video is Betty's appearance in Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Tress MacNeille doing the official voice role of Betty Boop which is false information as there is no solid proof to back up that claim as she does not have an official website but she may have provided the vocal for Betty as she is well known in voice-over. If it was true that Tress was the official voice for Boop she would have provided the voice of the Betty Boop parody Googi Goop in Animaniacs in which she was featured as Dot as voice-over artists can record multiple character roles. Desirée Goyette was the on and off official voice in the 1980s and 1990s and originally did the role of Betty Boop including the parody of Boop that appeared in the Animaniacs, she was replaced by Melissa Fahn who took over the role as the character. King Features always hire two or more people to portray the character. Tress has never provided the vocal for Boop according to valid information given. The official voices for Betty are Sandy Fox (since 1991) and Cindy Robinson.

The Betty Boop Archive
BETTY BOOP FAN HEART-BROKEN (1995)
During the 90s there was a Betty Boop archive that was very popular and had a total of 50K hits. The fan archive contained photo's, gifs, and videos. King Features loved the archive, but were concerned about the unauthorized use of their property, the character and image of Betty Boop. They sent an agreement which allowed the owner of the archive to continue using the character and image, subject to minor restrictions.The creator of the website who was a designer and artist attempted to negotiate with them to stop the lawsuit from going any fruther, stating they would set up a official website. And quoted a large sum of $75-100,000. King Features declined their offer and the Archive was then closed down by the owner because the people who owned Betty Boop wanted to make their own official website. Betty Boop's official website was launched several years later.
New York, NY, US
The very first WWW archive for fans of cartoon heroine Betty Boop. Includes QuickTimes in Mac and Windows format, GIFs, AUs, and other miscellaneous resources.
October 7, 1995
Dear Betty Boop Fans last month, King Features, a division of the Hearst Corporation, contacted me about my Betty Boop Archive. They liked the archive (the Web's one and only!), it seems, but they were concerned about the unauthorized use of their property, the character and image of Betty Boop.
Their attorneys sent me a legal agreement to sign, which generously allowed me to continue the free use the character and image of Betty, subject to certain minor restrictions. One of the clauses in the agreement, however, was very troubling to me and my attorney. Basically, the boilerplate "indemnification" clause they want me to sign required me to indemnify King Features (a division of a zillion-dollar megacorp) against any and all claims arising from my use of Betty material on my Web site. Since the site contained sound files, images, video clips, text files, and ASCII-images I assembled from all over the Net, and a large number of similar resources sent to me by Betty Boop fans all around the world, agreeing to this indemnifcation clause was quite dangerous.
I had no idea, for example, where a lot of these files came from. Were the GIFs illegally scanned from a copyrighted book? Did someone digitize a Betty cartoon clip off a copyrighted videotape? There was no way, my attorney and I agreed, that I could track down the ownership and rights to the scores of resources I had already put up on the WWW site (not to mention the 30 new clips and stills a Boop fan from Netcom had just sent me, but were not yet online).
If I agreed to the indemnification clause, I would open myself up to all sorts of legal problems if I were sued, and potentially even more disastrous monetary consequences if I also had to cover all of King Features' legal liability on top of my own. I communicated this to King Features. The person I spoke to there had never seen the Betty Boop site, but I told her the problem I had about the provenance of the resources there, and she seemed to understand.
I did, however, propose a solution I thought could be mutually beneficial. I had the Webmaster at www.phantom.com grep the log of 'hits' on just the main Boop page, and we determined that almost 53,000 people had visited the Betty Boop Archive in the six months it had been online (I took it off line once King Features sent me the letter).
There is obviously great interest from Betty Boop fans around the world, I told King Features: 53K 'hits' on a non-commercial site on an occasionally-flakey server, with a complicated URL (i.e., no cool www.boop.com address) was excellent! If King Features really wanted to keep Betty on the WWW, and build on what I had done, there was a simple approach that could keep me and them out of legal trouble.
Let's set up an official Betty Boop site, I told them. Give me access to officially-approved Betty images, clips, sounds, etc.--stuff King Features owns--and we won't have to worry about any lawsuits. We could publicize Betty's 60th birthday, promote the Betty Boop laserdisc coming out soon (from Republic Entertainment), hook up with the Betty Boop fan club, give people pointers to all the Betty Boop products now on sale, hype the "Betty Boop Confidential" cartoon re-release from the UCLA Film Archives, etc.
I am a freelance WWW designer and producer, and I quoted them a very reasonable fee for my work--an order of magnitude less than the $75-100,000 some corporations are paying for a presence on the Web.
King Features has just declined my offer.
I am not angry with them--just saddened.
Perhaps I did not properly communicate how much Betty is loved around the world (I wish I had saved all the thank you emails I got); perhaps I did not convince them of the power of the WWW to publicize their intellectual property. Maybe they don't think the corporate higher-ups would approve the project; maybe they want to do it themselves. I'll never know.
In any event, the Betty Boop Archive is dead. I want to thank all of you who contributed clips, images, sound files, bios, etc., to my Boop site. It was fun while it lasted. See you someplace else on the WWW, \/0!d.
P.S: If you'd like to communicate with Betty's owners, you can write to Ted Hannah, Director of Advertising and Public Relations, King Features, 216 East 45th Street, New York, N.Y. 10017. The phone number there is 800-526-KING. Their fax number is 212-983-6259. Be nice ;-)
Editor's Note: this farewell letter appeared on the web as of January 31, 1997 at the following URL: http://www.phantom.com/%7Evoidmstr/BettyBoopArchive.html
Well, sure. You did all this stuff for the heck of it, and they call you and go "hey, don't forget that's ours", and you go "wanna pay me for it?". You might have had better luck showing your work before you published it. But I dunno. What - Boop is only 60? You mean the cartoon or the real person? I understand my grandmother knew the real person, and that would have been a long time ago.
If you mean the person that did Betty's voice, that would be Mae Questel. I'm not sure if she's still alive- she would have to be at least 90 by now but she did Betty's voice in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Did a great job, too. Interesting trivia: During World War II, while Jack Mercer was serving in the Armed Forces, Questel doubled as the voice of Popeye.
I think the Betty Boop character was ripped off largely from singer Helen Kane. Maybe she's the one whom your mother knew?
Mae Questel has asserted that she performed the voice of Popeye when Mercer could not. Until I interviewed Jackson Beck recently I had not found anyone who confirmed that claim. Mae is alive but in fragile health. We're featuring a lengthy Betty Boop section in the next issue of Animato! to celebrate her 65th birthday. - Mike Dobbs
How do I get this magazine? Some of the last Boops (Sally Swing) seem to have a different voice. Were they made in Florida wihout Mae? Is there any way to get fan mail to Mae Questal? Jerry Pulice.
