Being a male observer, I feel that Barbie at least was a role model after a while. I mean, she had jobs. Bratz seem like the pretty, vapid, one-dimensional girl that marries for money, and only uses male companionship to get stuff so that they don't have to work a day in their lives... and they eventually grow into... well, anyone here watch "2 and a half men"? You know... Charlie and Alan's mother. Plus, I watched an episode of Bratz once, and it was just a terrible show anyway. And the CGI animation was poor. And there wasn't one episode I didn't see a preview of (during TMNT of course) where they didn't shove in an American Idol reference. Only thing I like about the Disney channel stuff I'm, always screaming about is that it seems to be killing the Bratz's popularity. I still hate the stuff, but even that stuff ain't as bad as Bratz. And to think, that was created by a dirty old Master Roshi like guy!
