4 episodes so far, another 4 I think will be added in the future.

Each episode is interviews with the people that created some of the successful toylines in history.

Ep 1: tells the tale of how a small company named Kenner obtained the toy license for STAR WARS

Ep 2: the history of Barbie (I passed on this epiosde)

Ep 3: the toyline that would give Star Wars serious competition and led to the first cartoon designed for the sole purpose of selling toys: MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE

Ep 4: G.I. JOE

Thanks for mentioning this. I watched the Star Wars episode. I liked the details of how Lucas and Kenner got the deal done.

The first trilogy Star Wars toys really interest me but Barbie, Masters Of The Universe and G.I. Joe don't really. I might watch the Star Trek episode but I'd really only be interested in the 70's Mego toys.
