Cartoon Barbies I’d Like to See

BlackcanarybarbieWith the recent flap of the Black Canary “S&M” Barbie, I took a look at other cartoon/comic inspired Barbies and found her lacking.

Some suggestions:

  • MJ Barbie
  • Ellie Patterson Barbie
  • Mrs. Lockhorn Barbie
  • Anime Giant Eyed Barbie
  • Blondie Barbie
  • Invisible Woman Barbie
  • “I say it’s spinach, and I say the hell with it” Kelly
  • Cathy Barbie with “Ack!” Button
  • Secretary Chased Around the Desk Barbie
  • Liberty Meadows’ Brandy Barbie
  • Marcie & Peppermint Patty Kelly and Stacie
  • Marge Barbie

Any I’ve missed?

No Wonder Ken Digs Her

Bild-LilliThis from Australia’s Herald Sun:

A 1959 Barbie doll dressed in a zebra-print swimming costume and sunglasses sold for nearly £3000 ($7585) today at a British auction of about 4000 of the toys.

What does this have to with cartoons, you ask?

Barbie’s looks were inspired by Bild Lilli, a 1950s comic strip prostitute created for German newspaper Bild.

Oh my…
