I had the V doll. Still do, somewhere actually. That thing rocks, but it was so hard to fit him into playtime with the other toys, what with him being Godzilla sized and all.

The one week to live plan would involve lots and lots of sex. After that, probably some drinking and watching movies, then more sex.

Could you tell I was excited? Never thought this would happen.
Happy birthday. Ah 26, seems like only yesterday I was taking your training wheels off.
And, the Manimal's hometown getting a decent shoutout for the Superbowl. The kid who did the coin toss wore a NORMANDY jersey. I am a Normandy Atlethic Association alum myself. 1987 Pop Warner: The Normandy Giants.
I will post later when I have actually read the article.

Too bad you don't have the Urkel commercial complete with the Urkel rap.
One week to live: I would probably plan something elaborate only to watch it pissed away in SIMPSON dvds. Oh yeah, tell my family I love them....
Chestnuts roasted by The Manimal @ 02/06/2005 09:27 PM EST
I SO need to get one of those Urkel dolls. And, thanks for reminding me about the old "Couch potato".
Anyway, If I had a week to live, I'd say goodbye to everyone I care about. Then, leave an outline to finishing the storylines in my two comic-book series(as well as the rights), to an artist friend of mine. And finally, read X-E until I drop.

Hah, and who says dolls are just for girls? Or kids, for that matter? Or weird old guys?
One week to live. Lessee. I'd distribute my toys among my friends [I'd rather be around to see them enjoy them, y'know?] and convince my girl to marry me. Yeah, for a week. S'better than dying all cold and alone and the like. Wait, it's summer here. So much for the cold. My shirt is freakin' soaked.

Reason number 5,784 I love this site: literally two days after I buy a talking Ernest doll on eBay Matt posts this article.
One week to live...yikes. Let's see here, I'd need a couple cans of silly string, a bunch of candy, a yoyo, a jar of pickles and probably my MST3K DVDs. I don't really know what I'd do, but at least that's a start. Oh, and of course I'd want my wife with me (it's always good to write stuff like that just in case she looks over my shoulder while I'm typing).

One week left to live?
I spend every waking moment trying to avoid exposing my eyeballs to more doll wang.
as sad and pathetic as it might be, I'd quit my job and just watch my favorite movies, read a few of my favorite books and play through Super Metroid one last time.
Chestnuts roasted by dantewyrmfoe @ 02/06/2005 11:02 PM EST
In all honesty, I actually would go to Disneyland. And maybe swim in the ocean. And for what it is worth, I too recognize Flabber from Big Bad Beetleborgs. It was probably the most memorable Power Rangers rip-off, what with a werewolf, vampire, and a 70's pimp ghost thing helping the kids out. But the best Power Ranger rip off title would have to be The Tatooed (sp?) Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. (yes it actuallt DID exist.)
Chestnuts roasted by Ed @ 02/06/2005 11:07 PM EST
I'd probably try to make other peoples life miserable by reminding them how in a week i'm going to die and how they have to be nice to me exactly because of that.
Then, I'd eat all the candy my body can get without puking my eyeballs out, play The Legend Of Zelda once more and just to go with a pompous endind, I'd probably kill myself the 6th day just to prove matt's prediction of it being a week was wrong...

Hey Matt, Happy Birthday. Mine is actually on the 5th of this month. Loved the Toyfare article and I hope there's more to come
Chestnuts roasted by Tom H @ 02/06/2005 11:39 PM EST
Cry a whole bunch, if you want the honest answer. Sit around and eat fried and cheese covered food. Go to Disneyland. Run up a bunch of gambling debts.
Happy birthday again!

My brother has one of those Couch Potatoes. He got it at a flear market a couple years ago. It's actually in pretty decent shape. I wonder how much they're really worth..

Great article, Matt! Top rate!
If I had a week to live, I would give my goodbyes to my family, jump in the car, and go to as many places I've never been to as time allows. New York City, here I come!

Great article, Matt...can't believe they had a doll based on Archie Bunker's Grandson. That's messed up..
Oh, and if I had a week to live, I'd spend it with my family and my fraternity brothers.
Chestnuts roasted by Cameron T. @ 02/07/2005 12:24 AM EST
One week to live, eh? Spend a day in seven different countries, maybe... that'd be amazing. Or, maybe I'd just eat some candy and watch old episodes of Family Double Dare until I expired like milk.
Chestnuts roasted by Review the World @ 02/07/2005 12:30 AM EST
Great article Matt once again, even so I have to admit that I still have that Urkel Doll. After many years of thinking about feeding it to the dog, I still managed to keep it in mostly good shape (glasses are gone to the land of lost toys).
So many years of "Got any cheese", "No sweat my pet", and "Did I do that" drives a person mad...

That couch potato is so frigg'n sweet. If I had a whole bunch of them, I'd pile em all up on the floor next to the bed. Then I'd start doing flips off of the bed. They look pretty sweet.

Happy B-day, Matt! Congrats, and don't ever grow up for real.
You're right= I forgot I owned a Couch Potato doll until this article. We used it to play Hot Potato, but mostly just threw it at each other.
One week to live? Hmmm..l'd leave Korea, head back to Canada and get all the family and friends together with me for a week of my favorite movies (They can't complain- even if it's "Little Monsters"!), favorites music (all 80s greats), fave foods + booze (finally= guilt free indulgence!!) and fave people- with a possible road trip thrown in- nothing beats a good road trip!!
Chestnuts roasted by Muppet Baby @ 02/07/2005 06:34 AM EST
OK, one week to live? Well, there's a girl I like, whom I'm fairly certain likes me. I'll go tell her that I want her bad and that I'm dying. She'll feel so bad that there's no way I'llbe dying a virgin, lol.
Naw. But there really is a girl, that I kinda like and who may like me, and I'm really gonna talk to her a little more heavily this week, and hint at the fact that I like her.

It's a toss-up: kidnap Orlando Bloom, or steal the best-lookin' horse in the world and ride 24-7. Or, wait until the week is up, realise I'd proved everybody wrong and snigger to myself. I snigger to myself a lot anyway.
I just realised: I don't smoke, drink, or have sex with strangers (er. or anyone, to be gushingly pathologically honest. Just so Kingklash can't tease me, either); what's killing me then? Lol.
PS Happy Birthday, Matt, and don't go too crazy. . . all those Congo gorillaz could be bad for your health
Chestnuts roasted by eminentfreak @ 02/07/2005 09:13 AM EST
Well, thank you for traumatizing this twelve-year old boy for life. I swear, after5 seeing that doll, I feel compelled to gouge my eyes out with a flaming spork.
Chestnuts roasted by TOM @ 02/07/2005 09:53 AM EST
Matt- I've heard of Flabber, but Jesus, a DOLL? Madness.
Also, who else caught American Dad after the Super Bowl? There were Hostess refs galore, including a joke that involved Choco-Diles.

Joey Stivic's balls really freaked me out. Thank goodness that stupid Urkel doll doesn't have 'em, or does it . . . bwahahahahaha.
Chestnuts roasted by Pedro @ 02/07/2005 10:33 AM EST
I also remember Beetleborgs and Teenage Alien Fighters.
Happy Birthday Matt.
That Stivic doll sort of reminded me of the controversy a few years ago when they released some anatomically correct dolls. The difference: They were of adult males and were supposed to be for gay people.
I remember a game show from around the same time called Couch Potatoes hosted by Marc Summers.
One week to live?- Pig pout on junk food. Sort of what I do now.
Chestnuts roasted by JLAJRC @ 02/07/2005 10:35 AM EST
Are you going to let us know who Flabber was? I googled him, but couldn't find any pictures.
Chestnuts roasted by Joe in OH @ 02/07/2005 12:17 PM EST
Depends on what is killing me. Rabies, or any similar horrible affliction? Make out a list of my enemies, then start biting. But I have seen my death, and it involves a busload of female clowns, a tube of toothpaste, life-size costumes of Giant Robo and Big O, and for some reason, Marc Summers. But, none of those is what actually kills me.
I remember the Joey doll. Even back then, the fact that it actually hit the shelves was a small wonder. Looking back on it, I knew it was a publicity stunt. Not quite as funny as the Skipper doll with growing breasts, but a good entry into doll history anyway.
Chestnuts roasted by kingklash, too strange to live, too odd to die. @ 02/07/2005 12:24 PM EST
Flabber is the Elvis-ish ghoul from Beetleborgs.
Chestnuts roasted by Matt @ 02/07/2005 12:26 PM EST
It really just depends - am I just going to drop dead suddenly but peacefully? Hope so. Quit my job, say goodbye to people I know and make the many apologies that must come along with that, then go to Ireland, England, and Japan, and the western US. Learn to ride a horse while shooting arrows like a ninja.

With one week left to live, I'd rob a bank, buy as much cheese doodles as humanly possible, write up a will stating that I need 2 coffins, one with me and one filled soley with cheese doodles, and that they need to be buried one on top of the other, with the doodles on top, so that the doodles might fall through on my skeleton...
Oh yeah, and Big Bad Beetleborgs rocked.
Chestnuts roasted by AJ @ 02/07/2005 03:42 PM EST
Look up "Heavy Armor B-Fighter" and "Gridman" in your favorite Sentai database. Only TTAFfBH was fully original, not action scenes from a Japanese show. That's a show that deserves a second chance, along with M.A.S.K.
Chestnuts roasted by kingklash @ 02/07/2005 04:27 PM EST
First of all, Happy Birthday, Matt. Hope you enjoyed yourself and remember most of it in the morning.
I pre-date "All In the Family" and am not a big sci-fi fan except for "Star Wars." I do, however, vaguely recall seeing the Couch Potato doll in novelty stores. My family didn't have cable by the time Urkel had fully taken over "Family Matters." Even so, I've never forgotten that doll, mostly in the big toy stores up north.
As for the survey, if I had a week, as corny as it sounds, I'd spend it with my family and friends.
Chestnuts roasted by starwenn @ 02/07/2005 06:14 PM EST
One week? I'd splurge and buy my gf (soon to be fiancee- Shhh!) a ring. Not really sure why, I guess I would feel like it'd be a shame not to.
I'd go someplace tropical w/ her for a few days then hang out the last days. Then leave my vast fortune to Matt so he can continue doing X-E FOREVER!

I Remember having one of those Urkels he use to come to the sit-ins. I remember I ripped open his head and stuffed cotten in it. I also use to power slam it alot. I hated that lil thing I still have it its sitting under my bed now half a head and all. He dosent have any fingers either and half a shoe but its all good he still comes to bro. Percy's sit-ins well got to go good day all.

I know Matt touched on it a bit in the article, but really... toys based on All In The Family??? Was All In The Family popular among five year old girls or something? On the bright side, the packaging was neat, with Archie on the front and the whole thing about it being "physically correct". Hate to see a physically incorrect baby boy.

That Joey Stivic doll creeps me out a little. Maybe I'm just a bit too uptight about that kind of thing... I used to watch Family Matters all the time when I was a kid and I had never seen that doll before. It's actually kinda neat.
Anyway, if I had a week to live I would say goodbye to my family, coworkers and friends and then I'd get all my money together and see how far I can travel by foot/jaywalking (it may be dangerous, but who cares? I wouldn't be around for long anyway) before dying. Anyone who wanted to come could join me, although I don't think I would ask anyone directly.

The only doll I will admitt to having as a male would the ultra-powerful Gorzak. I dont know if anyone would remember this behemoth but this warrior of death had it all. He could turn right, turn left, walk, and chop his axe all by the sound of your voice. He could also bellow out a battle cry that consisted of "RAAARGH" or "ARGHHH"! I still have this spawn of Satan's trinkets and I will keep him forever. Alas, I lost his chains that he breaks free from during his battle chop action!
Chestnuts roasted by Alex @ 02/08/2005 12:14 PM EST
"Couch Potato" comes from a comment that Princess Diana made in the mid-80s about people watching too much TV. She was either on some kick about geting people off their asses and exercising more, or she was making a point about not giving into the pressures of a public that obsessed about watching her life unfold on television. Whatever the case, the name caught on but instead of motivating people to get up and do something, it caused people to merely embrace the notion, hence a goddamn toy line based on it.
The worst part about the series of events is that it created another example of a kind of people I can't stand... Gimmick Whores. Some douche spot-welded to his recliner/couch/whatever that sits there with a Couch Potato doll because "it's so them" drives me insane.
The latest incarnation of this type of person could be seen by the thousands just the other day when so many people wore Super Bowl XXXIX t-shirts to the actual Super Bowl. What are they proving? "I'm here....Just like you....It's the Super Bowl today, you know?" Mind numbing.

I believe when Ken and Barbie were first released, both of those dolls were anatomically correct. I am not real sure about the testicals/testis but I do know that either the following year or a couple years after, thier current nudered state came to be.

The creator of the Barbie doll actually 'borrowed' the idea from a doll she found in Germany, called the Lilly doll. Lilly was the main character in a raunchy comic strip and the doll was meant as a gag gift for men. It's creepy how much the original barbie doll looks like this thing. Though I never heard about the anatomically correct thing.

Chestnuts roasted by No Use For A Quote @ 02/08/2005 09:03 PM EST
From Bill Bryson's "Made In America: An Informal History of the English Language in the United States":
"America was well on its way to becoming a nation of couch potatoes, though that expression would not, of course, be used for many years. (Its first appearance has been traced to the rather unlikely forum American Banker magazine of December 30, 1980, but the context suggests that it was already current, at least in California.)"
He cites Safire's "Coming to Terms".

I still have my 'V' doll and he on my shelf. Still looking as good as ever. I also wondered why there wasn't any more toys from this show. They could of have several figures just like they do for Star Wars (all the outfits for Diana alone! If you count the series after TFB). Maybe if the remake of 'V' ever gets off the ground, they will make toys for the new show, and then make the older figures into toys.
One week to live....I'd try and read as much as I could, and watch any movies that I've put off watching. And maybe end a few lives of those who have pissed me off.
Chestnuts roasted by MLD @ 02/11/2005 07:44 PM EST
What does this make me...#7 to remember Big Bad Beetleborgs (as well as the following season: Beetleborgs Metallix)?
And it was so much a ripoff of Power Rangers, they were both distributed by Saban at the time, so you can tell obvious similarities to both series. I even swear that the old costumes for Beetleborgs were used in later episodes of Power Rangers (especially the one with all of the Red Rangers, the villains' costumes were all from that show)
Chestnuts roasted by Invader Norbert @ 02/12/2005 01:15 AM EST
I always got creeped out by the V show. I wish I would've picked up a V doll now, though. But, being the poor kid I was, I could only have what could be purchased with what I made selling cheese during lunch.

Chestnuts roasted by Phrankey @ 02/13/2005 03:15 PM EST
Ah yes I remember that "Great Power Rangers Clone" flood that gave birth to Beetleborgs Super Human Samurai Syber Squad and that GOD AWFUL Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighter. I actually got kinda fond of SHSSS for a while becuz in the hour betwen waking up and catching the cheese wagon there was very little else on since at that point most of my TV networks had started to phase out there weekday morning cartoon line ups. TTAF was horrible I have no idea what USA was thinking when they came up with that turd. I rememeber that the acting and special effects were so shitty that it made the first season of power rangers look like it was written by shakespeare and had its SFX done by ILM.
Incidentally I did have a Couch Potato tho I have no idea what happened to him. The V and Joey dolls were before my time so I had no idea they even existed...and in the case of the latter I wish to the gods that were still true >_<

With one week to live i would have sex with every fine girl possible, and probably impregnate all of them. The future is full of me.HAHAHAHAHA. And I would spend the last day of my life playing Nintendo, and with my last breath I would finally beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That'd let me die happy I think. I know its a little late but I just bought the Super Mario Brothers Board game on ebay, I can't wait for it to arrive.
Chestnuts roasted by LoneWolf @ 02/15/2005 11:38 AM EST
That Joey Stivic doll is frightening. And its face actually reminds me of a doll I had as a kid, but she was fortunately sewn together with underwear permanently on. I never saw the fun of dolls that piss themselves. And if realism was what they were going for, why not a doll that pukes and shits as well. Good Lord.
If I was going to die in a week, I would need to rob a bank- or perhaps mug Paris Hilton- so I could have enough money to take the whole family to Disney World. And, once there, when I kicked the bucket I would volunteer to be the thousandth happy haunt in the Haunted Mansion.

Oh my god, that doll was anitomically correct???! Now, that is scary!!! They could NEVER get away with that now. Could you imagine?????
My mom's parents and grandmother loved Steve Urkel!!!! I think my cousin (who's 15 now) got one of those dolls when she was 1 yr. old. I think one of my cousins gave it to her. I wonder if she still has it.
That "V" doll was cool!!!!!! Lizard face and funky tounge!!!!!!!!! We'd have a field day at work with that one, particularly the lizard tounge!!!!!!!
I remember Couch Potato, but what the hell is a Flabber doll?? Someone wanna clue me in?
Great article, Matt!!!!

My boyfriend says to me "No sweat my pet" all the time, then he does his hysterical Pee-Wee Herman impression. Because I'm a sucker for anyone who can do Pee-Wee.
I can't believe I just admitted that.
