And I Can Always Make Them Smile, From White Castle to the Nile

This week's Choose and Defend Wednesday is brought to you in honor of Cartoon Appreciation Week over at The Swamp. I had a doozy of a time trying to think of something worthy of being chosen and defended...cartoons are full of possibilities! Finally it came to me. So, I ask you to take a look, to Choose, and to Defend with enthusiasm!

Who is your hot 'toon babe?

Betty Boop
OR

Jessica Rabbit

Old school or newfangled? Which of these lovely animated ladies takes first place in your heart? And why? The blogging world and cartoon appreciaters want to know...so Choose and Defend!

Betty Boop for sure! Mostly because my mom loved her... it?

This is a quandry. On one hand we have the original, the classic, the bar, if you will. On the other hand, Jessica Rabbit was drawn so well. I think I am going to have to say....hmmm....JESSICA RABBIT. That's my choice and I'm sticking with it.

A Bo A Bo A Bo Bop-ee Doo! Betty's my gal.

Tara said...

Jessica Rabbit. Betty Boop kind of annoys me with that voice of hers. Sorry, Ms. Boop! It's not you, it's me!

I didn't like the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", but I liked Jessica Rabbit's line, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way."

Betty Boop.... I fear I could never be all legs and breasts like Jess! I could however be short and dumpy like Betty! hehe

crazy4coens said...

Yikes - they both scare me. The raw sexuality of those women is more than I could ever hope to aspire to. (I'm one sick puppy, ain't I)

Pamela: That is a nice reason, I like that! One for moms...and One for Betty Boop.

AlienCG: I am trying to be surprised, but it isn't working for me :-) haha! One for the well drawn Jessica Rabbit.

Ananda: Everyone wanted her back in the day! Two for Betty Boop.

Tara: Betty Boop did have a distinctive little squeak :-) And that is a great line, isn't it? Two for Mrs. Jessica Rabbit.

Daffy: Ah, I like that line of thinking...although I am quite sure you are not remotely dumpy...and also sure NO ONE looks quite like Jessica R.
Three for Betty Boop.

Crazy4Coens: Anyone who notes the raw sexuality of cartoon characters is okay in my book! But the fence sitting...aw!

Everyone: So far Betty Boop is ahead of Jessica Rabbit by one slim vote. I'd love to hear more opinons on this burning issue, so if you haven't had your say here...well, please do!

i love the betty boop cartoons, but jessica rabbit makes my ---- ----.

so, 1 more for jessica. (if i'm not banned, that is.)

Sebastien said...

Jessica Rabbit! She is so hot (still haha!)... plus I love redheads ;)

laura b. said...

Cornbread Hell: No one is banned from Fresh Hell! Especially not for --- ---. We like that here. Yes, this makes Three for Jessica Rabbit.

Sebastien: Ah, the lure of the redhead...Four for Jessica Rabbit.

Everyone: See how easy it is to loose a lead? We now have Jessica Rabbit ahead by one va-va-vote. The polls are still open, so step right up and say your piece.

I've always guessed that a girls exterior demeanor is inversely relational to their sexual demeanor. I'll bet Betty's a freak in bed and Jessica's a flop.

Of course they're 2 dimensional and incapable of such things... I think Jessica's just nicer to look at.

laura b. said...

3GirlKnight: You know, I have heard that theory, but up until now, not here! Good job :-) Then you flip and surprise us with Five for Jessica.

This brings our running total to 5-3, Jessica Rabbit pulling ahead!

recently, my guy admitted he had no idea who Betty Boop was or what she looked like. Heh.

laura b. said...

TNP: He has to hear her sing! No, no, a thousand times NO! haha!
