We’ve been teasing it for months, but at last it’s here: the newest Classic Couple Academy course offering. Drum roll, please…Betty Boop: Sexpot, Spinster, Icon!
One of the biggest stars of the 1930s, ninety years later Betty Boop is a mainstay pop culture icon. Here at the Academy, we love Betty Boop, and we wanted to dig into her place in Hollywood history as Queen of the Animated Screen. And so, dig we did. The result is a course that explores Betty Boop’s beginnings and her character evolution as a woman of her times.
When we need a media partner, we immediately think of The Film Detective. Sharing our love of classic film and passion for edutainment, our friends at The Film Detective offered up their collection of Betty Boop cartoons for the course. We cannot thank them enough for curating a special collection for everyone who takes Betty Boop: Sexpot, Spinster, Icon! We’re so proud of this collaboration and of this course, which was truly a labor of love.
Fall in love again or for the first time with Betty Boop. As Betty Boop herself would implore, “I wanna be loved by you, alone! Boop-oop-a-doop!”
