Barbie is written similarly to Jerrica Benton (aka Jem) from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''. They're both blond 1980s pop stars who enjoy promoting friendship and world peace.

A 1987 cartoon special based on Mattel's ''Barbie and the Rockers'' (known as ''Barbie and the Rock Stars'' in the UK) line of dolls, developed at least partly in response to the popularity of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' cartoon. Unfortunately, where ''Jem'' was beloved and ran for three seasons, this barely saw much of a release. It received two direct-to-video specials but no tv series and hasn't been rereleased since the 90s.
