Betty Boop Pages website has been online since 1999. The bulk of
the original site was completed in 2001, and was hosted by Homestead.
While online, the Homestead site was the most popular website in
the AllThingsMike Universe.
The current site was constructed in 2005.
Betty Boop Pages were never meant to be a history of the Fleischer
Brothers cartoons or of the iconic Betty Boop herself.. There are
already a plethroa of sites on the internet which serve that purpose.
site was, and is still, a showcase for my composite art featuring
Betty Boop. I sporadically attempt to "expand the collection",
and to concentrate again of Miss Betty Boop and her charms.
initially constructing this version of the site in 2005, I didn't
visit the pages again until January 2006, when I created the "Betty
Boop Dreams" video which streams from my YouTube
in June 2007 I created yet another Betty Boop MikeVideo Internet
Movie called "Betty Boop". Both the videos stream from
this page. They were the "featured" items at the top of
the page for a long time.
I go through my websites in preparation for the 10th anniversary
of AllThingsMike, in May of
2009, I have revisited The Betty Boop Pages, and have created over
50 individual composite presentation pages. The Composite
Art and the Images From the Web sections
have been updated. Thumbnails of pretty much every Betty Boop composite
I've created over the past 10 or so years are included on the section
pages, and when clicked, bring the viewer to the individual page
containing the artwork. Each individual page has "Back"
and "Next" buttons for easy viewing.
top of all this, I've created over a dozen new artworks, using new
photography of my Danbury Mint collectibles, taken with my 7.2 megapixel
camera, and using high quality photos of mine for the backgrounds.
Some of the new images can be seen here on the index page.
final tweak to The Betty Boop Pages is the addition of a "comments"
page so that viewers may respond to the art.
