Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse can be an online web group of computer-animated shorts made by Arc Productions, and Mattel. The series debuted on, may 11, 2012 and is on Barbie.com, Netflix and YouTube. Two TV specials aired on Nickelodeon on September 1, 2013. The series ended on November 27, 2015. A fresh series titled Barbie: Dreamhouse Adventures premiered March 30, 2018.
The series is defined in a fictional version of Malibu, California, USA where most of its inhabitants are dolls. The dolls behave like humans, though many of the show’s gags count on their doll-like nature. The series centers around the life span of Barbie, her friends, her siblings, her boyfriend, Ken and numerous pets. The series is stylized as a mock reality show featuring confessionals of the characters among scenes. The show heavily depends on slapstick humor, and makes a whole lot of satirical and self-parody references to the Barbie doll line.
