Last Appearance

Betty Boop's Birthday

Bimbo became the star of Fleischer's Talkartoons series (Replacing Koko the Clown), making his first appearance as Bimbo in Hot Dog. Bimbo was relegated to a supporting character when his girlfriend Betty Boop became a more popular character. The Talkartoons series became the Betty Boop series. Bimbo appeared in Fleischer cartoons from 1930 to 1933, when he was eliminated from Betty's series by the Production Code censorship laws, since a dog with a human girlfriend gave implications of bestiality.



CatEdit

In the 1931 cartoon Wait 'Till the Sun ShinesNellie Bimbo is dispicted as a cat.

Bimbo's Other GirlfriendsEdit

Before Betty Boop, Bimbo often had other girlfriends or wifes most of who were prototypes of Betty Boop. His girlfriends appeared in some of the earlier Screen Songs and Talkartoons, some of them even appeared after Betty Boop's debut in Dizzy Dishes from 1931-1932.

Bimbo's ChildrenEdit
