This is a fake commercial made in 1998 by Phil Lord and Chris Miller for a series of educational shorts about action figures based on historical figures. Its educational value was somewhat suspect. It was never aired, which is really too bad because we LOVE it! That’s why we decided to help give it a second life by airing it on Women You Should Know.

    I’m looking for action figures for girls for Christmas. I don’t want to get my niece Barbie, a brat doll, or a monster girl doll. They all wear the two foot tall shoes and have big heads with snotty expressions and too much makeup. Any suggestions? I’ve seen some of bad quality or that just wouldn’t appeal to a girl. The Amelia Earheart doll and Rosie the riveter doll I found online were overpriced and super poor quality. Their faces also looked weird and their bodies like someone just used a cheap generic mold to make them. I don’t think my neice would like them. I like the Katniss doll, but it’s still from a movie not real life. Anyone know of like a firewoman or military girl doll that doesn’t have her hair down and wear high heels?
