Seen at Reuben's: Helen Kane

Because I get a strange enjoyment out of these crazy "celebrity pig-out gossip" stories, and I hope you do too:
HELEN KANE can't blame our A. M. devotees one little bit for singing "We wanna be fed by you, just you and nobody else but you". She brought it on herself! And between great hungry mouthfuls of a particularly luscious Reuben's Hot Turkey Sandwich rubily bespangled with Cranberry Jelly, this town's newest Jazz Diva enthusiastically endorsed the parody in her best "Boop-boop-a-doop" manner. And for that matter so does everybody else!
So let's get this straight. Kane walks into Reuben's and orders her food, and while she's eating it a bunch of radio fans sing a weird, food-centric parody of Kane's biggest hit. Supposedly Kane appreciates this and does her trademark "boop-boop-a-doop" thing.

These people were mental.

Ok time to figure this out finally

you wanna know why she wrote poop poop poop?


becuse her original Scat lyrics were Poop Poop a Doop!
but she had to change it to Boop Boop a Doop!

although for certian recordings she did add Poop Poop a Doop
but she later became known as the Boop Boop a Doop Girl.

also to mention Betty Boop who wasnt voiced by kane!
sometimes added the words Poop Oop a Doop, mainly when Bonnie poe voiced her.

Wow, where did you hear about the "poop poop a doop" changes? That's fascinating, especially because we caught her slipping the old poop into an advertisement!

So cool.
