Moonita (Cool Barbie minisode)
The Moonita minisode is the first of three "minisodes" of Cool Barbie released over the course of 2015, examining the aftermath of Cool Barbie VIII - Plan of the Scourge on three different characters. Produced by Austenasian Television Productions, the minisode was released on 1 January 2015.

The minisode starts with a brief recap of the events of CB.VIII, four months ago; Wisealise takes over the Land during the Uranian invasion of Earth, and gives Colin authority over the toys. The Royal Army are next seen, defending Queen Emily II and the Chancellor from the Troll Leader during Colin's takeover. The Troll Leader demands Emily's surrender, but she refuses, and is killed with magic. Enraged, the Chancellor charges at the Troll Leader, but the latter teleports away.
In the present day, Moonita - now in the body of Corporal Barbie - is crowned Queen of Toys by Xeaphon. Although grateful for the honour, she laments being stuck in the body of a Barbie, and Xeaphon promises to find a way to change her back.
- This minisode is the only Cool Barbie production to include a "Previously" section at the start.
- The Troll Leader attacks Queen Emily with his wig and hat properly attached, meaning that he must have killed her before he attempted to gain entry to the Cryogenic Research Prison, during which his wig was shot off. He is seen later in CB.VIII with it awkwardly stuck on sideways, and in all later appearances has given up on it completely.
- Although the Barbie doll used since CB.I (2009) is featured, this is the character Moonita, having swapped bodies with Corporal Barbie in CB.VIII. The Moonita minisode is the first ever (and, along with the Colin minisode, one of only two) of the Cool Barbie productions in which the eponymous character plays no role.
The entirety of the minisode was filmed, edited together, and published on 1 January 2015, the fastest completion of any Cool Barbie production. Despite this, the credits erroneously claim a copyright year of 2014 for the minisode due to the common "New Year mistake" of automatically assuming in early January that it is still the previous year.
Not including the shots included in the re-cap at the start, the Moonita minisode is the only Cool Barbie production to have been filmed entirely in the same room.
