Item Description: This is a terrific 1962 original Charley Weaver tin toy bartender made in Japan by Rosko Toys. The battery operated toy still worked a few years ago when I tested it briefly.
The bartender moves, shakes the martini, face lights up, and once warmed up, smoke emits from his ears. This was part of the personal collection of TV writer and producer Paul Henning (Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres) who wrote for Charley Weaver (actor Cliff Arquette) in radio. The toy requires two D batteries, not included.
