‘Skinhead Darby and Mohawk Ben,’ hilariously ‘insider’ punk Barbie doll parody from 1982


 
The only information on this video is “From the show Cheeseball. From 1982 - beta.” In spite of way more time than was merited spent in searching, zero other data has been forthcoming. (YOU try googling “cheeseball” and see what you get.) But I really wish I could find something. If this is representative, “Cheeseball” must have been a great show. Who was doing anything even remotely like this in 1982?

This has it all—white rap, detournéd toys, downward spirals, teen prostitution, ladyscaping, The Motels, social diseases, pill popping, doll abortion, threeway sex—all in rhyming, metered stanzas. LA-based DM readers might hear a few local dog whistles.

It’s pretty brilliant. If anyone reading this can help nail down a source, please don’t keep it to yourself, use the comments section.
