the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Barbie As Rapunzel’

This is actually an old DVD — dating back 2002 — that’s gotten a very minor redesign (of the packaging, that is) and is back as a “new release”… just in time to cash in on what is sure to be a Rapunzel craze with Disney’s Tangled about to open:

Go back in time to a place of magic and dragons, where Barbie™ stars as Rapunzel. Rapunzel had the most beautiful, radiant hair the world had ever seen. But Rapunzel’s life was far from wonderful. She lived as a servant of Gothel, a jealous, scheming witch who kept her hidden deep in a forbidding forest, guarded by the enormous dragon Hugo and surrounded by an enchanted glass wall. However, in a twist of fate, Rapunzel’s discovery of a magic paintbrush leads her on a journey that will unravel a web of deception, bring peace to two feuding kingdoms, and ultimately lead her to love with the handsome Prince Stefan. She succeeds with the help of Penelope,™ the least intimidating of dragons! Starring Academy Award® winner Anjelica Huston as Gothel and Cree Summer as Penelope™. The movie features a song performed by Samantha Mumba and music by the London Symphony Orchestra. Barbie™ as Rapunzel shows that love and imagination can change the world…

But where’s Flynn Rider in all of this? Everyone knows that Flynn Rider is an essential part of the Rapunzel story! His name is trademarked too!
