    Going through a few years archives for the heck of it. Right now on Netflix is a 4 (soon to be 8) part documentary called, “The Toys that Made Us,” that looks at toys. They did Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, GI Joe, and of course Barbie. The women who worked on Barbie are protective to the point of vicious – in the 80s, they heard a rumor that Hasbro was going to release a Barbie-like doll, they did some spying and found out they were going to be rockers (Jem & the Holograms) so they came up with and rushed Barbie and the Rockers into production in a fraction of the time it normally takes to get a new Barbie to market so it made Hasbro look like it was copying Mattel. Meanwhile, the dudes working on He-Man were all, “What if we made a bad guy who was a skunk, and he smelled bad?” “Righteous! We could call him Stinkor!” “Totally! Hey, do we have any pizza left?”
