Archived VOTD: Barbie and Ken’s TV Debut, PLUS their friends Skipper, Allen and Francie

The first-ever Barbie commercial:

The first Ken commercial wherein they meet: “Barbie, the famous teenage fashion-model doll by Mattel, knew this was going to be a special night…” She and Ken “go to fraternity parties and just relax together.”

The first-ever Skipper commercial:

Barbie’s now-defunct Cousin Francie:

And Ken’s now-defunct friend Allen (“exactly the same size as Ken!!!”):

Fondly,

M
