Mark Fleischer on New Betty Boop Series
“We are delighted to be partnering with an innovative production company such as Normaal Animation,” said Mark Fleischer, the president and CEO of Fleischer Studios. “My grandfather, Max Fleischer, created Betty Boop as a fun, feisty and fashionable female—and she has proven to be a character for all time. It is extremely gratifying to know that this new television series will introduce Max’s beloved icon to new generations of fans in an engaging, relatable way.”

Alexis Lavillat, the director and CEO of Normaal, added: “Few cartoon characters are loved the world over. Few cartoon characters know how to combine glamour with sass, and independence…and very few have so much heart!!" Ever since her creation by that genius of animation, Max Fleischer, Betty Boop has remained unique. It’s an honor and an immense pleasure today for Normaal to share its talents with this incredible star. Betty Boop will always symbolize the young modern woman.”
