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.
There is even a "Freddy Funko Director" Pop! which was a limited run of about 1,100-the number of audience members of the initial screening of this film at the Graumann's Chinese Theatre in Jan-2018 See more »
Nonsensical rambling that will leave you scratching your head
It could have been a great documentary but it leads the viewer down a rabbit hole where, upon reaching bottom, leaves them scratching their head saying "how the hell did we get here?" I love the series The Toys that Made Us and unfortunately, this is a far cry from fun, clear, concise and informative storytelling. It's reminiscent of an episode of Family Guy (and I'm not being complimentary) where a bunch of random ideas are thrown into a hat, randomly pulled out and glued together regardless of continuity or necessity. While it started off well enough, you'll find yourself quickly falling down the rabbit hole and likely falling asleep.
