Anyone else have one of these (or the Fisher Price equivalent) as a kid?  The films came in cartridges, and you just hold the projector up to a light or window, crank the crank, and watch a movie.  You can even watch backwards! 

 

I got this one very recently.  The stand was broken, and I've attempted to glue it back together.  I like this one a lot because it came with the "Lonesome Ghosts" movie.  Now I just need to find a few more Disney or Looney Tunes movies to go with it.

One of my favorite childhood toys!

Especially since we didn't have a VCR!

Another cool thing with these is that you can really study how animation works.  This device lets you see each frame, and you can move them slow or fast, forwards or backwards.

Lonesome Ghosts is GREAT! I had forgotten all about that!

I had the handheld one. (The one where you look through the the eyepiece to watch the movies). I actually just came across one of the movie carts.
