Helen Kane born Helen Clare Schroeder (August 4, 1904 – September 26, 1966) was an American singer. Her signature song was "I Wanna Be Loved by You". Kane's voice and appearance were a likely source for Fleischer Studios animator Grim Natwick when creating Betty Boop, itself a style originating from Baby Esther.
