The real Betty Boop was a black actress/singer named Esther Jones. Her stage name was "Baby Esther." A white woman named Helen Kane saw her act, stole the look, baby voice routine and called herself "Betty Boop." Shared by Where YoUth Rise
Actress Helen Kane, the inspiration for the Betty Boop cartoons, never received royalties or credit for them. She was a striking and unique performer who began in Vaudeville. ( So who really was the inspiration )
