First Barbie Doll The Barbie doll was invented in 1959 by Ruth Handler (co-founder of Mattel), whose own daughter was called Barbara. Barbie was introduced to the world at the American Toy Fair in New York City. The doll was intended to be a teenage fashion doll. There has been some controversy over Barbie's figure when it realized that if Barbie was a real person her measurements would be an impossible 36-18-38. The Ken doll was named after Ruth's son. Barbie first had bendable legs in 1965.

Then and Now- Eddie Van Halen Edward Lodewijk "Eddie" Van Halen (born January 26, 1955), is a Dutch-American guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter and producer, most famous as the lead guitarist and co-founder of the hard rock band Van Halen. Many of us were saddened when Valerie Bertinelli married Eddie Van Halen on April 11, 1981.On July 9, 2002, they announced that they had been separated since October 2001. She filed for divorce on December 5, 2005 which was finalized on December 20, 2007. During the late 1990s Eddie Van Halen was treated twice for tongue and mouth cancer. During an interview with Howard Stern on September 8, 2006, Eddie claimed that holding a metal pick in his mouth 12-14 hours per day while immersed in the electromagnetic radiation of his music studio caused his tongue cancer. He said he continues to smoke because "cigarettes didn't cause the cancer", despite the fact that they could in fact contribute to the cancer's potential for resurgence.

Hula Hoop  - Frisbee Inventor Passes today at age 82 ARCADIA, Calif., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Richard Knerr, co-founder of Wham-O, which gave the world the Hula Hoop and the Frisbee, has died at an Arcadia, Calif., hospital at 82. Knerr died Monday at Methodist Hospital after suffering a stroke earlier in the day at his home, his wife, Dorothy, told the Los Angeles Times. Knerr and his boyhood buddy Arthur "Spud" Melin started the company in 1948 in Pasadena. They named the enterprise Wham-O for the sound that their first product, a slingshot, made when it hit its target. Dozens of toys followed that often bore playful names like Superball, Slip 'N Slide and the Water Wiggle. But, they hit it big with a redesigned bamboo ring used for exercise in Australia that became one of the most popular fads of all time -- the Hula Hoop. Knerr and Melin figure they sold 25 million hoops in four months in the late 1950s. It had one major fault: it never wore out. In 1958, while the hoop was going great guns, the team came up with the Frisbee, another wildly popular fad that sold an estimated 100 million over the next 30 years. In addition to his wife, Knerr, who was born June 30, 1925, in San Gabriel,Calif., was survived by three children, two stepchildren and eight grandchildren. Melin died in 2002.

Rollergirls - 1978 Sitcom Flop In the late 1970s NBC couldn't seem to create a popular sitcom. Among the more spectacular flops was Rollergirls, which aired for a mere four episodes in the spring of 1978. The show centered on the Pittsburgh Pitts, an all-girl roller derby team. It was owned and managed by conniving Don Mitchell, a bargain-basement entrepreneur who was constantly looking for ways to save the foundering team. The Pitts were a sexy but sometimes inept crew: towering Mongo, feisty J.B., sophisticated Brooks, ditzy blonde Honey Bee, and innocent Pipeline (an Eskimo-American!). The announcer for the team's games was snobbish Howie Devine, a down-on-his-luck former opera commentator who would do anything for a buck. Rollergirls oddly operated on the premise that roller derby was on the level and was run as a legitimate pro sport--which most people over the age of 12 know to be untrue. Amazingly, viewers stayed away in droves.
