    The last “Betty Boop” cartoons were released in 1939, and a few made attempts to bring Betty into the swing era. In her last appearance, “Rhythm on the Reservation” (1939), she drives an open convertible labeled, “Betty Boop’s Swing Band”, while driving through a Native American reservation, where she introduces the people to swing music and creates a “Swinging Sioux Band.” The Betty Boop cartoon series officially ended with one more 1939 entry, Yip Yip Yippy, which was actually a Boop-less one shot cartoon. kk
