'''''Cool Barbie''''' is an [[Empire of Austenasia|Austenasian]] sci-fi fantasy television series directed and written by [[Jonathan I, Emperor of Austenasia|HIM Emperor Jonathan I]] and produced by [[Austenasian Television Productions]] (ATP). Three original episodes were privately made by Jonathan (together with his [[Lord Timothy|cousin]] and [[Crown Princess Caroline|sister]]) before the foundation of Austenasia, between December 2005 and September 2008. After ATP was created in December 2008, it was decided to remake the three films, as well as to create sequels. A new series of fifteen episodes was therefore written, and published on YouTube between March 2009 and December 2018.
The series revolves around an eponymous [[w:Barbie doll|Barbie doll]] in a world where toys are alive and have communities protected by humans, and her encounters with aliens and villains.

==== Original episodes ====
The three original Cool Barbie episodes were filmed by Jonathan I, Crown Princess Caroline and Lord Timothy before Austenasia was founded.
Widely regarded as very badly filmed, these episodes (especially the first two) were full of plot holes, continuity errors, and breaking of the fourth wall, deriving great comedic value from their sometimes intentionally poor quality. The script for a fourth was written, but filming had barely started by the time that the project was abandoned.
The first two films were recorded onto a VHS tape, and were converted into digital format by ATP in September 2014. The third was recorded directly onto a DVD by a digital camcorder, but was unable to be edited until software was acquired in March 2015 enabling it to be downloaded to a computer. The three original films have
yet to be released publicly, but footage from the first is used in ATP's CB.I. Furthermore, with CB.IX made as somewhat of a tribute to ten years of Cool Barbie, audio clips from all three original episodes are used in CB.IX, a short clip from the original Cool Barbie film is seen on a television screen, and clips from all three original episodes are included in a tribute compilation after the credits. More clips from the original Cool Barbie film are included in a montage after the credits of the final ATP episode.
