The Jack Osbourne celebrity doll depicts him at 16 as himself during the time of his family’s MTV reality show called The Osbournes. The show ran from 2002 until 2005. The Jack Osbourne doll was manufactured by Fun-4-All Corp in 2002 with a license from the Signatures Network as part of series that included his family. Sharon, Kelly, and Ozzy appeared with him on the show. The Celebrity Doll Museum has the entire Osbourne talking doll collection.
Jack’s father Ozzy Osbourne is a Grammy Award-winning English singer-songwriter whose career began in 1968 as vocalist for the English heavy metal band Black Sabbath. After 1978 his long solo career and marriage to Sharon Adler led to more fame, fortune, and finally a reality TV star.
The doll box reads
Since their debut, The Osbourne Family- the new “first family of television” – has won the hearts of millions of viewers with their infectious, if slightly oddball, antics. Ozzy, Sharon, Kelly and Jack have completely redefined the family experience of the modern age!
Unlike most celebrity dolls, this collection is part bendable plush and part vinyl doll. Only the head, below the knees, and arms from just above the elbow down are vinyl, the rest of the doll is cloth. The cloth sections are wired to bend and hold a pose, but the head is fixed. The doll has has plastic spiked dark brown hair and comes with attached black glasses. The black jacket and long sleeved ‘Blizzard of Ozz” decal-ed black t-shirt can be removed but the pants, white shirt underneath, and shoes are part of the doll body. This was sold as a talking doll, but the doll which is over 10 years old no longer has a working battery. To access and change the battery inside (3 LR44 button batteries) the seams of the doll’s back must be opened.
