The real Betty Boop was a black actress/singer named Esther Jones. Her stage name was "Baby Esther." A white woman named Helen Kane saw her act, stole the look, baby voice routine and called herself "Betty Boop."
You may not know it, but you love this woman. Mae Questel (1908-1998) was the voice of Betty Boop, Olive Oyl, Little Audrey, Casper the Friendly Ghost, Minnie Mouse, and Felix the Cat. AND she played Aunt Bethany in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
Black Betty is a 20th-century African-American work song often credited to Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter as the author, though the earliest recordings are not by him. Some sources claim it is one of Lead Belly's many adaptations of earlier folk material in this case an 18th-century marching cadence about a flintlock musket. There are many recorded versions, including a cappella, folk, and rock arrangements. The best known modern recording is this rock version by Ram Jam which was a big hit.
