the tasty and the tasteless
Mrs. BeasleyFri, July 15, 2005 - 1:23 PM
I do remember that if I had left her downstairs and woke up in my bed without her I would freak out and make my step dad go downstairs to get her for me because it was so dark. I was terrified of the dark. Now that I read the things she would say I am positive as to why I loved that doll. I wanted her to be my mommy, she said all the things I would have wanted to hear. Amazing...
Here is a blurb I found about her with her picture. Talk about a scary looking doll, but I tell ya I loved her sooooooooooo much.
She was made by the Mattel Company. Mrs. Beasley has vibrant yellow hair, a bright blue body with white polka dots. A little blue collar with yellow rick-rack ties around her neck, as well as the apron around her waist. Of course Mrs. Beasley goes nowhere without her square-rimmed, black plastic glasses. By pulling her pull string, you can hear Mrs. Beasley say these 11 phrases:
I do think you're the nicest little friend I ever had!
Gracious me, you're getting to be such a big girl!
It would be such fun to play jump rope don't you think?
Speak a little louder dear, so Mrs. Beasley can hear you.
If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for?
Would you like to try on my glasses? You may if you wish.
Do you want to play?
If you were a little smaller, I could rock you to sleep.
Long ago, I was a little girl, just like you!
Do you want to hear a secret? I know one!
You may call me Mrs. Beasley, would you like to play?
A good friend, until she got ruined by something, or my mom made her conveniently disappear or something. I don't remember what happened to her. sigh. Maybe I outgrew her and switched to my Tiffany Doll. lol
This now ends my silly blog posting.

you wouldn't believeyou wouldn't believe how traumatized I was by that doll... she kept calling me a little girl!
yep I bet she did. She was the prototype for the girlfriends of future Gay boyfriends doll.
i have no idea what the hell this doll is about. never seen her in my life.
kid sister... now there was a doll!
my buddy was just as awesome!
ahhh.. the theme song said it all.
"my buddy, my buddy, my buddy, my buddy, my buddy and me."
"kid sister, kid sister, kid sister, kid sister, kid sister and me!"
The doll came out in 1967 because it was originally made for a tv show called Family Affair.
I was 4, the doll was my best friend. I am old. sigh.
so many gray hairs, named after so many people...
Thank the godgoddess for hair dye...
i dont get gray hair, i go bald.
(think about that while you are "eating pie" to my picture)
Rod you are so sassy.
Don't knock pie eating till you try eating...
okay so it wasn't good but it worked for me.
|My best friend in high school told me a story about her Mrs. Beasley, her very favorite doll as a little girl. One day she was watching TV in her livingroom, where there was a huge picture window. Her brothers had taken Mrs. Beasley and climbed up on the roof, and hung the doll on a noose, swinging it back and forth. The movement caught her eye, and some serious screaming ensued.|
Remember when Uncle Bill threatened to give away any toy Buffy and Jody forgot to put away -- and then Mrs. Beasley accidentally fell off a chair and Uncle Bill said to himself, "Holy shit, I can't give Mrs. Beasley away, that'll traumatize poor Buffy forever," so he made an exception.
I'll never forget the knots that episode put in my stomach. The only other time I got that upset watching TV was when Mike and Carol guilted Peter into admitting he broke the vase with the basketball.
I do remember that episode without the holy shit exclamation.
I was very attached to Mrs. Beasley. Now looking at her face in this picture it is sort of freaky to think of a doll that looks like that and says those things... the late 60's and early 70s were a different time.
I loved when Peter's voice changed on The Brady Bunch but my personal favorite was when Davey Jones visited. I wished I was Marcia.
|The "Oh my nose!" episode with the football hitting Marsha is the one I remember the most. (Over and over again.)|
Mrs BeasleyMrs Beasley is extremely zen. She was my teacher!
