A Boop-less Betty flickered silently across the wall of supreme court justice Mcgoldrick's chambers today as Helen Kane sought to show that the animated cartoon character has copied $250.000 worth of her Boop-Boop-a-Doop style.

Miss Kane who claims to be the original booper is suing paramount publix and creator of Betty Boop Max Fleischer, creator of Betty Boop, and is seeking a injuction to stop her pen & ink mimic.

Alternaly pouting and giggling the actress-singer watched a few Betty Boop cartoons, and then filmed a version of how she boop's.

* Jurist Watches Closely
