Mae Questel

voice of cartoon characters
Born: 9/13/1908
Birthplace: New York City

Questel began performing in vaudeville in her late teens. Her “boop-oop-a-doop ”routine won her the job of providing Betty Boop's voice in the popular series of animated shorts (1931–39). She also supplied the vocal cords for Olive Oyl in the Popeye cartoon series (1933–67) and sometimes for the cartoon characters Little Audrey and Casper the Friendly Ghost. Questel's recording of “The Good Ship Lollipop” sold 2 million copies during the 1930s.
