Witness Alfred Evans who was an employee of Rudy Vallee testifed saying that he had heard Edith Griffith sing a Boop-Boop-a-Doop song in Nebraska in 1927.
Evidence Against KaneEdit
Edith Griffith, and Felix Mayol were also used as evidence against Helen Kane, but the old footage of Baby Esther performing the routine helped prove that Helen Kane was not the "first" Boop-Oop-a-Doop singer in the business.
Helen Kane sued The Fleischer Studios & Paramount Studios for stealing her act, but the court had ruled that Helen might have lifted the Oo-Poo-Pa-Doo gimmick either from Baby Esther or Edith Griffith. Helen first used the catchprase in That's My Weakness Now (1927) fans reactions made her use it again in Button Up Your Overcoat.
