Hello friends! I forgot to show this lovely Barbie on my post last week about Movie inspired Barbies. This is Rose Dewitt from Titanic.

I thought I would show you a few TV show inspired Barbies today. Here is a Star Trek Gift set from 1997. Mattel also released a new set of 3 Star Trek dolls after the release of the new movie this past Spring.

Mattel has had a huge success with their line of I Love Lucy dolls. And it's no surprise why. They are so fun! Mattel started producing Lucy Barbies in the late 90's and still continues to release new dolls.
I really love Lucy!!! I grew up on Lucy. Which is something you don't hear from most 20 year olds. I watched Nick at Nite every night when I was little. I loved all the classics! But Lucy was always my favorite. I watched those episodes so many times but I never got bored of them.

This is a Gypsy Barbie from episode 38 ""The Operetta". Can you see her blacked out teeth? Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is one of Mattel's most recent gift sets. Lucy and Ethel in episode 69 "Lucy and Ethel buy the same dress". I can hear that song they sing together in my head right now. It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship, When other friendships have been forgot
Ours will still be hot! Lahdle-ahdle-ahdle-dig-dig-dig.

I really like this one. It's a gift set of both Lucy and Ricky. This is a 50th Anniversary set.

This Lucy Barbie is from episode 19 "The Ballet". Don't you always cringe when you see Lucy get her leg stuck on the balancing bar? I do!!! Ouchy!!!

One of my favorite episodes! Episode 116 " Lucy gets in Pictures". I don't think I could have stood up any straighter than she did with that big head piece!! Poor Lucy!!

In episode 45 "Sales Resistance" Lucy was talked into buying an expensive vacuum and trys to go door to door selling to get rid of it.

In episode 3 "Be a Pal" Lucy is following a book's advice and ends up looking like the chiquita banana lady!!!!

Episode 147 "Lucy gets a Paris Gown". Lucy wants a designer gown and when Ricky finds out she was tricking him to get one he puts together a crazy outfit made of burlap and passes it off as a Paris original.

Possibly the best episode ever is episode 49 "Job Switching". Ricky wants Lucy to try working for a week, so she and Ethel get jobs at a candy factory, where they are totally inept-especially at wrapping chocolates-due to a speeding conveyor belt that has them stuffing chocolates in their mouths, blouses, and hats.

A lovely Lucy doll in one of her many beautiful outfits.

Episode 114 "L.A. at Last" Lucy arrives in Hollywood with stars in her eyes. She heads for The Brown Derby, a celebrity hangout, where she encounters Eve Arden and William Holden -- and inadvertently presents Holden with a custard pie in the face.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these dolls today!

Hi Lindsey
The Rose Dewitt Barbie is beautiful. Jessica would love that doll as The Titanic is one of her favorite movies. I am not familiar with the I Love Lucy show but all the dolls look lovely. We have some boxed Baywatch Barbie dolls from around 1997. Maybe one day they will be collectots items.
Best Wishes


Hi Lindsey,
Now that I'm going to this Barbie party in August...I'm just loving all the Barbies that are around...SO MANY....I can wear anything and probably Barbie wore it!!
Just loving your job!!?

Hi...I'm a new follower of your blog...I'm starting to get an itch for collecting Barbies...ever since I was at Walmart the other day and they have brought back the old black Barbie Doll case...I had to open it to see if it smelled the same...yep...that plastic smell gets me all the time!

Mattel does a marvelous job with it's movie/movie star inspired Bs, dudn't it? What an incredible Kate Winslett/Rose Dewitt likeness-- I wonder if KW is a proud ower of one of the dolls. An even BIGGER question: I wonder if Leo DiCaprio is! LOL!

And the Lucies are scruptuous! A few birthdays back, my daughter presented her dad with the Lucy/William Holden "encounter" doll, as it is his all-time favorite I Love Lucyepisode. Thanks, again, for a wonderful blog-share and trip down Memory Lane (one of my fave places to travel)!

Hi Lindsey! I'm at the library and don't have time to read your post yet but I wanted to at least say hi to you! Hi!!! ♥ I hope to have my computer back today.

With Koala Trucks, you do not have to worry about the quality of the forklifts you purchased, Koala Trucks has constant dedication in supplying quality equipment at competitive prices. Beyond that level, the weights cannot be lifted any further. * The Ozanam Inn, 843 Camp Street - Will accept males only beginning at 7:00 p.m. It is a fact that renting a forklift can be much cheaper than buying your own machine.
