Betty Boop: Sexy, Dangerous and Spreading Sugar In the Ghetto

ART betty boop.jpg
Betty Boop No Longer Virtuous by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author of the Our Lady of Weight Loss books, and 50-pound big-time-loser.
Betty Boop, the first and quite possibly the most famous animated sex symbol was first served up and dished out during the Depression era; debuting on August 9, 1930, in the cartoon Dizzy Dishes.
Betty, sporting high heels, garter belt, short dress, and false eyelashes was the first cartoon to fully represent a sexual woman. Betty’s virtue was often challenged, but in the end, on film – in animated form – she proved to be a good girl.
Fast forward to August, 2008 – some 78 years later – Betty Boop is alive and well … she’s living in East Harlem.

Is Betty still a dishy-dish? Is her virtue still being challenged? Has she ultimately remained a good girl?

I stopped by the local Bodega on my home late last night, hoping against all hope that I might find a fresh container of skim milk or even 1% or 2% (for my morning coffee). Alas, I had to settle for full fat.
As I approached the ‘check-out’ counter, there stood Betty Boop … tall (great posture), winking at me, big head, red lips and all … luring me in, ‘check me out!’ The label promised “Betty Boop Lip Gloss is ‘au’some.'” I’m pulled in; this will be a fun gift for my friend’s daughter who loves to get into her mommy’s lipsticks and play dress-up.
$1.99 later, at home, at closer examination I realize that the lip gloss is, in fact, candy! Corn syrup and sugar, its first ingredients!

Betty Boop

Lip Gloss.

Wink and a Kiss

Betty Boop is contributing to the fattening of America; to the obesity of our children. All cute and fun, but no longer the good girl – she spreads sugar through-out the ghetto, straight onto the lips of our children (3 and over – see small print on back label).
I feel betrayed – saddened, in fact. Betty, who in the days of yore held to some level of integrity, sold out. She’s still a cute and alluring dishy-dish, but she has lost her innocence and is no longer virtuous.
Be outraged with me! Write Au’Some, Inc., 2031 Route 130, Ste. E., Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852, USA. Tell them that you want more for your children and they should, too!

    I’m with you on the sugar, high-fructose corn-syrup dangers all the way. Sugar and HFCS is causing all kinds of health problems, including diabetes and obesity and children should NO way be marketed to in this way.
    I would disagree with you on the low fat thing, however. If you don’t eat fat, what is left? Lots of grains (most of which are processed — “whole grains” are pretty hard to find) which simply convert to sugar in the body, causing increased insulin, and highs and lows that can even contribute to mood imbalances, anxiety and depression, and weight gain. I’m for a whole foods diet that includes some fat, in order to provide satisfaction so that we are not constantly hungry.

    Hi there Lisa, I’m not against fat. It’s just that 3 servings (per Weight Watcher and other balanced ‘diet’ plans) is all that’s needed on a daily bais … and of the good fats. Olive Oil and Avocado. I’ve noticed that people use too much fat; and as we all know too much of a good thing cancels out the good.
    I was working with a lovely woman who was thinking that good fats are great and was drizzling olive oil on just about everything she ate from morning till night. She was gaining weight. Once we took a good look at her food intake (another good reason to get real and write it down), reduced the amount of fat (did not remove it entirely), she removed those excess pounds and was thrilled.
    So … for the record, low-fat to me, means the appropriate amount of fat! I’m in favor of a balanced approach to food and life!
    Thanks for leaving a comment. Our Lady of Weight Loss loves comments. Her heart is singing.

    Agree!! apart from sweetening your taste buds, and satisfying your sweet tooth, sugar has no health benefits to offer you. Sugar is an unnatural substance that is produced as a result of an industrial process, called refining.
    In the refining process you lose out on all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other essential nutrients. So when you are told that sugar is not healthy, believe it.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
