Went With The Wind Barbie

Mattel has released a Bob Mackie-designed Carol Burnett Barbie.
A comic legend, a noted fashion and costume designer, an unforgettable television show. These elements join forces in The Carol Burnett Show Went with the Wind! Barbie® doll. One of the shows most memorable sketches “Went with the Wind” is based on the classic film “Gone with the Wind.” In an effort to woo Rat Butler, Starlet quickly creates a dress sure to impress her gentleman caller. The results are unforgettable — a velvety green gown made of drapes, complete with the curtain rod! This wonderful character doll is beautifully sculpted in the likeness of Miss Burnett. She wears an elaborate re-creation of the original costume, re-imagined by the original designer, acclaimed costumer Bob Mackie. Designed by Bob Mackie.
Carol Burnett is an idol to Ellen DeGeneres and today she appeared on Ellen to gift a teary DeGeneres with the doll. The Barbie brand turns 50 this month. Below is the original sketch from The Carol Burnett Show.
