“We are delighted to be partnering with an innovative production company such as Normaal Animation,” said Mark Fleischer, President and CEO of Los Angeles-based Fleischer Studios. “My grandfather, Max Fleischer, created Betty Boop as a fun, feisty and fashionable female – and she has proven to be a character for all time. It is extremely gratifying to know that this new television series will introduce Max’s beloved icon to new generations of fans in an engaging, relatable way.”
“Few cartoon characters are loved the world over. Few cartoon characters know how to combine glamour with sass, and independence… and very few have so much heart!!” said Alexis Lavillat, Director and CEO of Normaal. “Ever since her creation by that genius of animation, Max Fleischer, Betty Boop has remained unique. It’s an honor and an immense pleasure today for Normaal to share its talents with this incredible star. Betty Boop will always symbolize the young modern woman.”
