Vic Morrow Bobble Head Doll Recalled

The Vic Morrow bobble head doll, with head still attachedResponding to numerous complaints, the makers of the Vic Morrow bobble head doll, part of the “Legends of Hollywood” series, have announced a recall of the product.

“I’ve always been a fan of Vic Morrow, going back to his days on the Combat TV show” said one customer.  “So I bought a Vic Morrow bobble head.  What better way to remember one of my heroes.”

The trouble began when he took the bobble head out of the box.

“The damn head kept popping off.  I kept reattaching it but the head still wouldn’t stay on.  And what was with the detachable rotary blades that came with the doll?”

Many other customers who have bought the Legends of Hollywood bobble head series report similar problems.  One customer who bought a David Carradine bobble head has hired a lawyer and intends to sue.

“I took the David Carradine doll out of the box and it had a rope around its neck and the other end was attached to his privates.  I may need therapy. I don’t need to see that.  Neither do my kids.”

The Def Leppard bobble head’s drummer comes with a detachable arm.

“I tried reattaching it” said the owner.  “And it looked like it might work.  But the bobble head rejected it and I had to throw the arm away. And I don’t even want to talk about the lead guitarist bobble head.  It did nothing but use syringes and vomit a lot.”

Among the many complaints regarding the Legends of  Hollywood series include:

  • The Sal Mineo bobble head (kept getting stabbed)
  • The Jack Cassidy bobble head (would burn to death)
  • The James Dean bobble head (came with a car and had a tendency to crash it)
  • The Phil Hartman bobble head (kept getting shot)
  • The Dennis Wilson bobble head (kept drowning)
  • The Laurence Olivier bobble head (kept sleeping with the Danny Kaye bobble head)

In lieu of the many complaints Congress has stepped in and will hold hearings on the subject of emotional damage caused by bobble head toys.

A spokesman for the Legends of Hollywood series states that they tried for the “utmost authenticity” with their bobble heads and has apologized to anyone who might have been offended.

He also announced their latest bobble head: the O.J. Simpson doll, “black gloves sold separately.

    I would buy the Carradine action figure. No joke.

    Vic is the dude that died during Twilight Zone, correct?

    Wanna see something really scary?

    The Carradine action figure is sold out. Apparently it’s very popular.

    Yes, poor Vic lost his dead to a helicopter during the filming of Twilight Zone. Fortunately, being a professional he continued with the scene despite being decapitated.

    My Jane Mansfield bobble head doll is life sized. She DOES NOT ride in the car with me.

  5. Manhattan Infidel says:

    Can the Jane Mansfield bobble head double as a flotation device?

  6. Matt says:

    I wonder if the Bob Crane dolls dies under mysterious circumstances? Come to think of it, does the Michael Jackson doll go around touching little boys?

  7. Manhattan Infidel says:

    The Michael Jackson doll was recalled due to “unforeseen defects.”

    No comment necessary.
