    Will -- that was not a real toy, was it??  It looks like a collector's item made for sale in the Village.

    I am off to google, gaily.  :)

    I found it on Wikipedia, but it wasn't Mattel who came out with it:


    Gay Bob was a doll, created in 1977 and billed as the world's first openly gay doll. Bob was created by former advertising executive Harvey Rosenberg and marketed through his company, Gizmo Development. Gay Bob was bestowed with an Esquire magazine "Dubious Achievement Award" for 1978.[1]

    Bob stood 13 inches tall and was presented clothed in a flannel shirt, tight jeans and cowboy boots. He had one ear pierced. Bob's packaging box was shaped like a closet and included a catalog from which additional outfits could be ordered. Creator Rosenberg described the doll as resembling a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Bob was anatomically correct.

    Callie-- Jessey was spot on, with the exception that I think Bazooka gum was actually made by Topps, but I'm not certain.
    (why do I keep reading that name as "JerseyEric"?)
    Now, where were we?

    I have not been able to verify that Topps was the company that manufactureed Bazooka, but there was some joint business ventures. So I guess it is possible.

    Jessey - picked from my favorite non-fictional character - Jessey James
    Eric - picked from my favorite fictional character - Eric Draven from the Crow

    Yes - that really was a toy sold in stores. I'm old enough to remember when it was introduced. I thought it was part of the Barbie line by Matel but I guess I was mistaken. Thanks for looking that up and posting the info EESandwich

    I couldn't help myself. I loved Lil' Abner when I was a kid and didn't understand why until I got a little bit older.

    Will:  As the owner of many Barbies (as a kid, and now as the mom of a Barbie-loving daughter), I was pretty sure Mattel would have run screaming from Gay Bob -- even today.  Mattel can't even sell many marginally-heterosexual Ken dolls.

    So my doll-dar was awakened by your original post.  Embarassed

    Something I didn't know before - when searching for the pic I discovered the doll was anatomically correct. (unlike poor Ken)

    Tinwoman had some kind of Ken (or maybe GIJoe) that came with a speedo, kungfu grip and karate chopping action.
    If those features had been included with Gay Bob, I can't imagine the havoc it would have created.

    Another reason why Mattel probably wouldn't have offered it.  Geez, even Barbie is not anatomically correct.
