The Ozzy Osbourne celebrity doll depicts him as himself at the time of his MTV reality show about his family called The Osbournes. The show ran from 2002 until 2005. The Ozzy 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 Jack appeared with him on the show.
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.
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 two toned red and black hair and the doll comes with attached sunglasses that can be raised. The black coat can be removed but the pants, black shirt and shoes are part of the doll body. This was sold as a talking doll, but the particular doll the museum owns no longer has a working battery and there is no way to change it without breaking the seams of the cloth chest.
