Moments in History  for  August Including Betty Boop

Moments in History Including Betty Boop

  • August 9, 1930 – Betty Boop makes her cartoon debut in Dizzy Dishes. Betty Boop was so popular but some cities banned her like Philadelphia as being too risque so when she returned a few months later, she had lost her garter. Betty Boop merchandise is very popular still today as they sell clothing, purses, stationary, jewelry and other memorabilia with the popular wide eyed girl. Betty was known for saying Boop-Ooop-a-Doop in a sexy manner.
  • August 3, 1936 – Jesse Owens wins the 100 meter dash, defeating Ralph Metcalfe, at the Berlin Olympics.

     

    • August 3, 1900- The Firestone Rubber Company was founded.

     

    • August 4, 1958 – The Billboard Hot 100 is published for the first time.
  • August 5, 1957 – American Bandstand, a show dedicated to the teenage "baby-boomers" by playing the songs and showing popular dances of the time, debuts on the ABC.

  • August 7, 1959 – The Lincoln Memorial design on the U.S. penny goes into circulation. It replaces the "sheaves of wheat" design, and was minted until 2008.

  • August 9, 1984 -- Richard Resigned his office of the Presidency of the United States.

Hi Tim,

I always thought she was funny but didn't think she was risque. I thought Mae West was thought as I used to watch those B & W movies.

Hi Joanna,

Yes I think so too. I read where some actress (unknown) was very upset and thought Betty has stolen her popularity and antics. She obviously isn't among the greats as who would be jealous of a cartoon character!

Can you even imagine that Betty Boop was banned for being too risque?  Fast forward a few decades and look what the world has to offer now!

HI Myrl,

And in today's standards who would think anything of a garter. Our world has changed but luckily Betty Boop is still with us.

Hi Ron,

Kristin~ I was a huge American Bandstand fan. It didn't realize it started as far back as the late 50s. I miss Dick Clark!

Hi Donna,

I remember as a little girl like maybe 9 yrs old or so, that I started watching American Bandstand. Dick Clark was the greatest and his voice was wonderful. I miss him too and I am sure hundreds of thousands of us watched American Bandstand.
