Mattel has announced “Barbie Mysteries: The Great Horse Chase,” Mattel Television Studios’ new animated children’s series, will debut globally on Netflix this fall. Featuring a new animation style and storyline, “Barbie Mysteries: The Great Horse Chase” will consist of eight 25-minute episodes.

The series follows Barbie “Brooklyn” Roberts and Barbie “Malibu” Roberts as they embark on a new adventure vacation of a lifetime: a trip to the English countryside to visit Lady Carson, Ken’s aunt and owner of cherished horses, Tornado and Pepper. Before Barbie and Barbie can take in the sights, their plans are derailed by the brazen theft of the prized jumping horses and a diamond-encrusted saddle worth millions of dollars. Suddenly, everyone is a suspect. To clear their names and rescue the beloved horses, the two Barbies embark on a journey across Europe, chasing clues and suspects.

In anticipation of the animated series launch, Mattel will offer new toys inspired by the series. The line includes the Dance & Show Horse, the Barbie “Malibu” Riding Doll and the Barbie “Brooklyn” Riding Doll. All items are sold separately.

“With an all-new story and mysterious adventures, ‘Barbie Mysteries: The Great Horse Chase’ brings to life fun-filled adventures and the bond between Malibu, Brooklyn and friends like never before,” says Michelle Mendelovitz, global head, Mattel Television Studios. “We’re excited to introduce Barbie fans of all ages to this delightful new series and accompanying toy line as we continue to expand the Barbie universe even further."
