Betty Boop: A Love Story
In celebration of the month of love and Valentine´s day, MINT Museum of Toys presents Betty Boop: A Love Story, featuring Betty Boop and Bimbo toys. Rewind back in time to the 1930’s to relive the era of Betty Boop and the story of her romantic affair with Bimbo the dog.
Their story began in Dizzy Dishes cartoon, in which Bimbo appears as a Chef and falls in love at first sight with Betty a lovely poodle, who is performing and singing in a nightclub where he works. The subsequent cartoons show Betty Boop as a sex symbol of the roaring ‘20s and a rebel who was against old values, making her a controversial character for viewers then. This set of dolls and collectables from the 1930’s Talkartoon series are rare and originate mostly from Japan and USA, where these characters were very popular.
The exhibition is located on Level 3, Childhood Favourites and is complimentary with regular museum admission.
