#126 M-ET KLY, Clown Robot

Seen here at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair is M-ET KLY, the first attempt at a clown automaton. Unfortunately for this Weary Will-E the real Weary Willie unleashed a fury that we all suspect clowns are capable of and through a swift corporate law action M-ET disappeared, some believe to the bottom of the East River, all we know is Emmett Kelly Jr. would not say, just put on his sad clown face and walk away.

Shopping together my Neutron Man Robot and a photo of Emmett Kelly Jr. in his 'Weary Willie' get up from the 1964 NY Worlds Fair photo located at wikimedia commons, a public domain photo.
