Betty Boop's birthday
-- Created by legendary animator Max Fleischer, Betty Boop made her first appearance in the 1930 animated short called Dizzy Dishes, which was part of Fleischer Studios' Talkartoon series. Set in a nightclub, the cartoon introduces Betty Boop as a cabaret singer. She only makes a brief appearance, but it is long enough to captivate Bimbo the waiter and the big star of the film. Source
