Little Ann Little gained fame nearly 50 years ago as the voice of Betty Boop. From 1931 to 1933, Little Ann Little made recordings for the “Betty Boop“ cartoons and appeared in variety shows throughout the country. Once Ann had gotten the role of Betty Boop she had became a star.

Paramount Pictures was holding a contest for a girl with a squeaky voice for the role of the cartoon character Betty Boop. Ann tried out for the role and had gotten the part. Ann Rothschild also made personal appearances as Betty Boop.

Little Ann Little went on the road with the Fleischer Studios artist Pauline Comanor. Ann would pose while Pauline drew her as Betty boop. They both finished the act with a "boop-boop-a-doop."

Ann started in show business in 1925 as a member of the pony chorus with the Greenwich Village Follies. She was also an RKO discovery and at one time had her own program on the NBC network as singer Little Ann Little.

Ann later moved to St. Petersburg, Florida with her husband who was a retired employe of Consolidated Edison.

In the late 1940s, she was an instructor at the Pauline Buhner School of Dance in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she taught acting, singing and dancing.
