Sunday Funnies - Betty Boop Meets Dracula

In keeping with the idea of posting videos with a Halloween-related theme this month, here is a curious little piece, featuring Mae Questel and Bela Lugosi. I'm sure most of us have seen old "Dracula" movies, featuring Bela Lugosi, but usually, when we see Betty Boop, she's in "cartoon mode" and not live. Mae Questel was the actress who provided the voice for Betty in those cartoons, but it was a long time before I actually realized that, in real life, back in her early days, she not only sounded like Betty, she looked like Betty, too! She had a long career, in which she voiced not only Betty Boop, but Olive Oyl in the early Popeye shorts, Little Lulu, and other cartoon personalities. She appeared in "Funny Girl" with Barbara Streisand, and in National Lampoon's "Christmas Vacation"--for more on Mae, click here.
