Barbie’s Abandoned Family Members

There’s Francie, Jazzy, Stacie, Kelly, Krissy, Tutti, and Todd, who all disappeared under mysterious circumstances (or possibly just poor sales). Now that Barbie is running for president, these missing relatives may prove to be skeletons in her closet. Link

The Late Movies: Saved by the Bell’s Musical Numbers
