“As the fortieth anniversary is looming with great…’Antic-i-pation’ lifelong fans and even newbies to the cult of ROCKY will be very excited by the kick-off of this great product line, says Sal Piro “RHPS Fan Club President.” What better response can there be to the audience call-back “LET THERE BE LIPS” !!!!

Origins of Betty BoopMs. Esther Jones, better known by her stage name “Baby Esther,” was an African-American singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at the The Cotton Club in Harlem.Singer Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and copied (rather STOLE) Ms Jones’ “baby-voiced” singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You”.Ms. Jones’ singing style went on to become the inspiration for Max Fleischer’s cartoon character’s voice and singing style. Despite being a Jewish character, Betty Boop was indeed modeled after a black woman. Esther Jones’ trademark was singing “Boop-boop-a-doop” In a baby voice at the Cotton Club in Harlem. Baby Esther interpolated words such as ‘Boo-Boo-Boo’ and ‘Doo-Doo-Doo’ in songs at a cabaret. 
An early test sound film was also discovered, which featured Baby Esther performing in this style, disproving Kane’s claims. Baby Esther’s manager also testified that Helen Kane had seen Baby Esther’s cabaret act in 1928.Supreme Court Judge Edward J. McGoldrick ruled: “The plaintiff has failed to sustain either cause of action by proof of sufficient probative force”. In his opinion, the “baby” technique of singing did not originate with Kane.There was a $250,000 infringement lawsuitEsther’s manager also testified that Helen Kane and her manager saw Baby’s act somewhere between 1928-1929.

Scholar Robert G.O’ Meally said, “Betty Boop, the white cartoon character, had a black grandmother in her background.”Baby Esther was presumed dead by 1934, when the lawsuit had ended.@Learn your History or they will Hide it from you.@BLACK-American MUSIC and DANCE Styles. - Influential WorldWide



Don’t forget Betty Boop was a major influence in Osamu Tezuka’s work. Tezuka is considered the forefather of modern anime with the “big doe eyes” style so to an extent, all female anime characters owe part of their legacy to this lady!
