Blondie and Tootsie

Did you know that before Blondie Boopadoop married Dagwood Bumstead in 1933, she was a  flapper who liked to hang out in dance halls?  Blondie's maiden name was derived from the song "I Wanna Be Loved by You" by Helen Kane.  A Max Fleischer caricature of Kane, with her famous "boop-boop-a-doop" tag line, eventually became one of the first cartoon sex symbols...one Betty Boop.
