Rudy Vallee

Rudy Vallée (July 28, 1901 – July 3, 1986) was an American singer, actor, bandleader, and entertainer. He appeared in a majority of the Fleischer Studios Screen Songs and live-action shorts from 1931-1932.  A caricature of him can be seen singing through a megaphone in the 1934 short Poor Cinderella.




  • The animators who worked on the Color Classic Poor Cinderella disliked Rudy Vallee so they drew him as if he were not wearing any pants.
  • His live appearances were usually sold out, and even if his singing could hardly be heard in those venues not yet equipped with the new electronic microphones, his screaming female fans went home happy if they had caught sight of his lips through the opening of the emblematic megaphone he often sang through.
  • He appears as the Judge in the 1931 Paramount live-action short film Musical Justice, alongside Mae Questel, and performs Betty Boop's theme song "Don't Take My Boop-Oop-A-Doop Away". In 1930, Rudy Vallee used to perform live at the Paramount with Helen Kane (another Boop-Boop-a-Doop Girl) as lead vocal with his band the Connecticut Yankees.
  • He was one of the first modern pop stars of the 1920s-1930s of the teen idol type.
