The legendary Boop-Boop-a-Doop Girl, Helen Kane, was surprised by Ralph Edwards in this rare 1958 edition of "This is Your Life". She even gets to sing a chorus of her signature hit, "I Wanna Be Loved By You," accompanied on piano by its composer, Harry Ruby. Also appearing is veteran star Fifi D'Orsay. Kane was the inspiration for Betty Boop, though that character was voiced by imitator Mae Questel. The show includes vintage commercials for Colgate ("Look Ma, no cavities!"), Ivory soap and Pace home permanent.
