"Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy" is awesomeness. It shows how companies easily continue to dominate the general public with collectible merchandise.
7 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode... it revolves around the deception of collectible items and various toys having a degrading influence on children and collectors in general. A Malibu Stacy doll falls under Lisa's grasp and she begins to despise its purpose and message to children. It generally provokes females to be looked upon as a degraded sexual object with wildly funny comments. Of course, this is fine with most girls as they enjoy duplicating this image... but it's not fine with Lisa... who proceeds to try and track down the creator of the Malibu Stacy line of figurines. First, she visits Waylon Smithers, the number one collector of Malibu Stacy dolls. He has a tremendously huge collection of the dolls... and a very nice sexual background of Mr. Burns on his home computer (but that's just some awesome trivia)... anyway... Smithers tells Lisa about the company's real Malibu Stacy... Stacy Lovelle... whom Lisa goes to meet. She eventually convinces Lovelle to fund a new figurine called the Lisa Lionheart doll which happens to reveal a more intellectual message to children rather than simply being a sex object. However, the doll primarily fails due to popular demand of the ever-popular Malibu Stacy line of figures... for which Smithers (along with lots of young girls) run to acquire upon their release. The episode is awesomeness. My all-time favorite character Smithers plays a huge role here... and the overall story is well-written. It portrays how companies easily deceive the general public... and will always continue to do so. Very solid plot.
