Just above Tom, there is another image of a parachuting Jerry about to be pounced upon by an unopened parachute-clad Tom. Behind the image of Tom that is holding the match, Spike is poised--angrily--with a green mallet, about to hit Tom over the head.. Behind the image of Tom that is wearing the parachute, Tyke is chasing after Tom, as if to bite him. The wider end of this telescope-shaped kaleidoscope is covered with a red plastic turning area, to change the kaleidoscopic images inside. This item was manufactured in 1973 in England by Green Monk. The kaleidoscope works just fine and is undamaged. There are a few shallow dents in the metal, but these are not noticeable very easily to the eye (primarily to the touch). There are a few small, light, and minor scratches in the paint on the litho, but these detract very little from the overall bright and colorful appearance of this item’s graphics. The eyepiece area has some minor scratching and very light rusting on it. Describing these flaws like this makes this item sound much worse than it really is, since its overall condition is EX or EX+.

TOM & JERRY (MGM) musical -- skateboard

  This is a 7" ceramic musical showing Tom and Jerry riding on top of a yellow skateboard with a pair of red stripes on the back end and white rollers for wheels, with grey edges and red "axles."  When the base is wound up, the musical revolves and plays the song King of the Road.  The rotation and musical mechanisms both work just fine.  This item was manufactured by Gorham in 1981.  It retains its original blue-and-silver foil sticker and its original cardboard hang tag.  With no damage and just a few tiny flecks of paint loss, this item is in NM+ condition.  PLEASE NOTE: Due to the odd shape and fragile nature of this musical, we strongly recommend that the buyer also purchase insurance.
