Foolishly, I looked to Free-To-Air Television to entertain this afternoon and found the only thing on that wasn’t sport, was BARBIE AS THE ISLAND PRINCESS. Now I stoop to comment on the naffness of the animation. The 2D image that accompanies this blog post simply can’t deliver the full horror of watching a disgusting 3D elephant (called Tika) emoting. At one point, when Tika was drowning, I wanted her to perish because the top of her head was idiotically high-domed like a Newfoundland hound’s (unlike in the above image), her eyes were anthropomorphically forward on her head like a flippin’ human and she was puffing her cheeks in and out as she wept with her own tragedy. Pah!
Fortunately the politics were all RIGHT ON, because for awhile it looked as though commoner Ro (Barbie, natch) would be barred from marrying Prince Jerkweed (may have misheard this). Then in the last few momentsit turned out that Ro was, in fact, the long-lost child of a Queen and ergo a Princess herself. Phew!
Elevate the Insignificant,
p.s. I have nothing against Newfoundland hounds or Newfoundland per se – although Prince Edward Island is my Canadian Island of choice.
