Japanese Barbie Stop Animation

Pretty entertaining videos I found while reading some of the blogs I follow.  There are two videos, both made in the 80s.  The first one is kind of funny in a cheesy way.  It picks up in the second half.  The first part involve a doll riding a toy motorcycle through the streets of Japan.  Half way in it changes to I guess a parody of action movies in general.  The doll is the heroine of a spy movie, with live action villains.

The second video is longer, but in my opinion better.  Its like a stop animation magical-girl/gundam.  The heroine's friend gets kidnapped by foreigners.  The foreigners take her on board their flying crab ship.  The heroine then calls for her paper airplane ship which can apparently turn into different origami creatures.
