Khyber Raccoon by Collectors’ Workshop(c. 1987)
In 1987, The Khyber Cobra automaton was the single biggest seller in CW’S History (though I believe it was later superceded by Jumbo Sidekick which came out 1989):
- He rises, but with the wrong card
- He returns to the basket to try again
- Groups of cards come flying out of the basket
- The Cobra rises again! This time, he’s got it
- He descends (complacently) into the basket
- But he returns, just peeking above the basket to share the applause
This little Raccoon of course works the same as the Khyber Kobra – since it is one, just with a different head. But the fun and byplay you can have with the raccoon seem to be more than just with the snake.
