In the 1980s a bunch of underground cartoonists parodied a popular doll. The resulting commercial product tapped into the international kid zeitgeist. That young generation felt that this product spoke to the revulsion they had for the corporate pop culture that was being fed to them.
This episode was a backdoor pilot for a potential ABC comedy series centered around the lives of single mother Lucy Somers (Nia Long) and her daughters Felicia (Rachel Crow) and Gigi (Summer Parker), one of whom was the grown-up narrator (Octavia Spencer). When the show became the series Schooled (2019), it was retooled to be all about The Goldbergs character Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka) and her career as a teacher at the high school at which she used to be a student. Felicia Somers is one of her students, still portrayed by Rachel Crow. See more »
This show has really gone downhill since they wrote Lainey out of the script. Then "replaced" her with that irritating valley girl roommate Erica has at the college. The school she never seems to attend.
