Electric Robot and box



First plastic toy robot from Louis Marx. Battery-powered, the eyes light up and the robot propels across the floor, turning his blockhead grin from side to side. A buzzer in the back can be pressed for some dotting and dashing of the Morse Code. Other built-ins include a chest drawer with miniature tools, an antenna that raises or lowers from his head, and a twisty knob arm movement. The robot comes with a diapered baby robot known as "Son."

Below is a photo of the two original color combinations.
