The Origin of Betty Boop




Ms. ESTHER JONES, 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 or stole ). Ms Jones’
‘baby’ 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 )) cartoon character’s Voice and SINGING style of BETTY BOOP,
was YES a Black Woman.



Her singing trademark Was.. “boop oop a doop “.. In a baby voice at the cotton club in Harlem. -

Esther Jones who’s stage name was “Baby Esther” was a popular
entertainer at Harlem’s Cotton Club in the late 1920s. Baby Esther
interpolated words such as ‘Boo-Boo-Boo’ & ‘Doo-Doo-Doo’ in songs
at a cabaret.

Helen Kane SAW Baby’s act in 1928 and (stole) Used it in her hit song I Wanna Be Loved By You.





An early test sound film was also discovered, which featured Baby
Esther performing in this style, isproving Kane’s claims. Baby
Esther’s manager also testified that Helen Kane had saw 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.



$250,000 infringement lawsuit

It's interesting how in the first episodes of Popeye's she's her original dark complexion












It's scary to not know how much our history has actually been whitewashed

OMG! this is the craziest yet! I wonder if the reason why so many black women have a natural affinity for this cartoon was because she was a black woman! How you gonna just plain steal someones id and put it in a cartoon and on top of that not give her any credit! Wow that is just wow!

BHM teaches me something once again!

The first pic of Baby Ester is real, the second is not of the pic of the actual culture vulture... I don't believe it's even vintage
