Why the Betty Boop Cartoons Were CENSORED in 1934

Betty Boop is widely considered one of the first and most well-known sex symbols on the animated screen; she is a symbol of the Depression-era and a reminder of the more carefree days of the Jazz Age flappers. Her appeal was mostly among adults, and the cartoons, which appeared surreal, featured numerous sexual and psychological themes, especially in the 1932 "Talkartoon" titled “Minnie the Moocher,” which starred singer Cab Calloway and his orchestra through the magic of Max Fleischer's rotoscope.
