1976 Horsman Police Woman Catalog

It may seem commonplace now but the mid seventies TV series "Police Woman" was groundbreaking televison.

Angie Dickinson played "Pepper" Anderson, a no nonsense lady cop and she became the first female lead of an action series (thankfully not the last, bit of a "Xena: Warrior Princess" fan ).

Horsman dolls sought to captilize on this powerful new role model with an action figure (not a doll) and a series of cool outfits. Interestingly enough this line was also marketed by Model Toys in the UK as "HAVOC"  and centered around a group of female spies, I'm not sure which line came first.

That "undercover mission" outfit cracks me up! Was she supposed to be going undercover as the Hamburglar??

I like the way the display header said she had "lifelife" mobility.

I love the name of the outfits. They totally sound like episodes of a Quinn Martin production :)
