  1. I watched this on Youtube or either have it on DVD; purchased/watched after purchasing my Tonner Friday Foster doll. Prior to Tonner's doll, I was unaware of the Friday Foster franchise: comic strip turned movie featuring Pam Grier.


  2. Wow, I didn't know anything about Friday Foster. I had seen the Tonner doll, but didn't know the rest. Thanks for educating me.

  3. You are welcome. I had watched the movie but did not know about the comic strip until a few years ago.
