Betty Boop Joins the Army?


I was walking by the Arizona Historical Society, near the University of Arizona campus,  and saw this figure in the open doorway.  So I took a bunch of pictures and only realized after the fact that I was looking in at someone’s wedding reception – in fact the bride shows up faintly in the backround of this photo.   I recognized the figure as Betty Boop, a 1930’s cartoon figure.  Why she’s dressed in combat fatigues is a mystery to me.  According to this Wikipedia article, “Betty Boop is noteworthy for being the first cartoon character to fully represent a sexual woman”.
