Not only was Al Ackerman's walkaround the other day extremely unpleasant, it was also ripped off from Felix Adler.

Uh, Al... why exactly?

If I'm not mistaken I think this is Jack Leclaires L'il Turk. Jackie still has this prop and its still usable. Its made of paper mache and chicken wire. Mitch Freddes

Nope, it's different. Similar but different.

I've got film of Jackie doing his dad's bit in the early 60's. and film of Felix doing this walkaround in the early 50s.

They are similar in construction, granted, but different in performance.

The PC version of this gag would be to replace the woman with the robot 'WALL-E'...
