Cecil in the Music Box! (Mattel, 1961)

This has to be one of my most prized possessions, and favorite collectibles that I own.  This is a unique jack-in-the-box made to tie in the with Beany & Cecil animated cartoon, and it's stunning.  It has no rust, no damage, works perfectly, and included the original box!
Front (and also back) artwork
The graphics are wonderful to behold, and of course, the tune it plays is the Beany & Cecil theme, which ends right before Cecil springs up.

I see the box also bears the Bob Clampett insignia too (the "seal of approval" in this case).

Now if we only had a video of you crankin' this baby, I'd be in heaven!
