Doll Name Pizzazz
Stock # (US) #4204/4010
Hasbro package contents listing
  • 1st Year, US: 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, musical instrument, pumps, hairpick, cassette tape, 2 bracelets and figure stand. 
  • 2nd Year, US: 12 1/2" doll with stage fashion, musical instrument, pumps, hairpick, cassette tape, and figure stand. 
  • Pizzazz was released both years, the packaging and guitar being the main differences between the two. The 2nd edition box omitted the reference to her bracelets in her contents listing; she came with them anyway. 
  • 2nd year Misfits seem to be limited to ones marked "Made in China" - BUT, not all Made In China Pizzazz dolls are 2nd year dolls. 
Produced Variants So far, I know of Pizzazz dolls marked on their backs with one of the following places of manufacture, and there are slight variations among them:

12 1/2" doll; Caucasian skin tone doll with spiky bangs and long straight chartreuse hair. 
  • She has the same facial sculpt as Raya
  • Some Pizzazzes, you may notice have a thin layer of clear plastic (or remnants thereof) on their scalps. I have found such dolls to have a slightly powdery feeling on their hair; the dye tends to transfer to fabrics and vinyl. 
  • Hair texture and to a lesser degree her make-up varies. 

stage fashion (dress); Top half is mostly fuchsia spandex with velveteen white and black tiger print collar trim, under the tiger fabric is a layer of fuchsia lamé. The attached skirt is made of velveteen white tiger print material with a fuchsia lamé trim sewn on the hem. 

stage fashion (belt); Made of spandex and match the material and colour of the sock. 
  • It can be varying shades of green, and either straight like the one shown, or have curly ends, such is the case with my 1st issue H32 Pizzazz. Compare

stage fashion (sock); only one, fluorescent yellow-green lycra. Will match belt, but not panties. 
  • My 1st issue H32 Pizzazz's sock is shorter, greener and has a differently sewn hem. Compare
  • Both of my dolls came with the sock on the right leg, though they also can come packed on the left.*
stage fashion (panties); fluorescent yellow slightly ribbed satiny-material, elasticized waist. They are yellower and more satiny in texture than the belt and sock. 

musical instrumentFirst edition doll's is iridescent grey plastic, topped with a holographic decal. Comes with a gold cord. The guitar shown on the far left is from an H-32 doll, darker plastic with a squared-point (near the top cord hole) The H-22 doll's guitar (middle) has the same shape as the 2nd Edition Pizzazz guitar, but has the other 1st year features of holographic decal and opaque plastic. Second edition doll (far right) is made of transparent grey glitter plastic & no label (the frets, etc. are printed right on the plastic). 
  • This is the only guitar with a holographic sticker, all other Jem guitars have glitter or paper labels. The pattern of the hologram can vary. 
  • I'm pretty sure the design has been changed enough to qualify her guitar as being original but it's definitely got shades of the Warlock by BC Rich. 
  • The Mexican Pizzazz guitar looks similar to the US 2nd Edition, but it is blue.
pumps: Gunmetal Grey with an iridescent lavender sheen. These (from my 2nd Ed US doll). 
  • Pizzazz is the only doll to come with this shade of shoe so you can't really get them confused, however they do seem to vary quite a lot. For example, my 1st issue H32 Pizzazz came with thinner, darker s hoes. Compare
hairpick; one of the many shades of magenta Jem hairpicks. 
  • The first edition doll can also come with a neon yellow one*. 
cassette tape; black with yellowish lettering. Dated 1985. 
Side A "Pizzazz- Jem Theme, Outta My Way, Makin' Mischief.
Side B "Pizzazz - Jem Instrumental"
bracelets; gold spiked "Misfit" bracelets. Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy (first and second editions) each came with a pair of these.

figure stand; First edition stand is clear fluorescent yellow (top). The first editions of Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy each came with one. Second Edition stand is milkier. Clash and the second editions of Pizzazz, Stormer and Roxy each came with one.

Packaging Variants: A listing of the packaging that Pizzazz can be found in, that I know of, so far! You may also find it interesting to find out what "H-22", "H-32", and "H-44" means.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists. If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

Source Differences from produced doll (if any)
1986 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (it looks like the same doll is modeling the Smashin' Fashions)
  • Pizzazz's lips are much darker, as is her blush, which is nearly orange and very triangular. 
  • The strap on her guitar is a lighter gauge
  • She has only one bracelet
  • Her shoes are yellow, her sock and belt also look more yellow than green
  • 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (Doll page) Looks pretty much how the produced doll looks, I can't see any obvious differences.

  • Pizzazz's make up at it's most extreme!  The blush is definitely an orange triangle on the face more so than blush at this point. 
  • The lip paint is also darker. 
  • Her guitar doesn't have a decal on it. 
  • Very early prototype of Pizzazz (originally named Pizazz). From Moggygoddess' photos.
  • Completely different doll style, outfit and make up has various obvious differences. 
  • More closely resembles Pizzazz's first incarnation on the cartoon, as this was a photo that Sunbow would have used as a source.
