    Gottlieb Dancing Dolls Prototype? Post #9 in topic

    Posted 19 months ago by jrpinball – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply 19 months ago

    I believe the material you are quoting refers to "Flipper", and not "Dancing Dolls". "Flipper" was the first wedgehead, first production add-a-ball game, and the first Gottlieb metal rail game. I've seen several in their original woodrail cabinets, and the cabinet artwork is similar to "Square Head" as is stated in the article you're quoting.

    Posted 19 months ago by jrpinball – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply 19 months ago

    There supposedly was a modified "Dancing Dolls" produced by Gottlieb (according to the ipdb). It was an experimental add-a-ball machine. Oddly, your machine has starburst bumper caps on it which came out much later. I've seen some woodrail games dropped into metal rail cabinets before, but if this is the real deal, you might have something there.

    Don't look over the roto-target games of the late 50's. I bought my first one, '58 Criss Cross, then quickly added a couple more good ones ('58 Sittin' Pretty and '60 Wagon Train). Got to have a good aim with those little flippers:) When I read the title of the thread, I thought it was about these. This is from '59 HI-DIVER, a four flipper game with back box animation.

    Playfield looks pretty good. Are the parts for the animation in the backglass there ? Looks like a good project. I like the cigarette holders. I also like the artwork on the apron for the Dancing Dolls. Cool that there are some original instruction cards with it. Paint on the side of the head looks good. Is the cabinet nice also ? If a repro backglass is available, that and some of your good effort and work might make it a real nice game. I'd like to see how it progresses.

    Miss Annabelle 1959 - Who has one!?! Post #6 in topic

    Posted over 4 years ago by presqueisle – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply over 4 years ago

    Thanks for posting. That is a beautiful game! The old back box animation is pretty neat, and that has to be one of the best ones I've seen. I have a HI-DIVER and Dancing Dolls that I enjoy over here. 8-59, Miss Annabelle was the first Gtb single player (maybe first Gtb?) with score reels. 10 months later, 6-60, Dancing Dolls was the last Gtb with bulb scoring. A couple significant games I think.

    But, every time I look at that backglass, there is something that bugs me about that fountain....... Don't do that! Now it can't be unseen! Just like when someone commented about my Dancing Dolls backglass "looks like two people being hung".

    1947 Gottlieb Flying Trapeze Post #6 in topic

    Posted over 5 years ago by presqueisle – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply over 5 years ago

    IPDB quote, 'Last Flipperless pin made by Gottlieb'. That's significant then, even as a pre-flipper. Humpy Dumpty was the next pin on the line then. I have the last Gtb with bulb scoring, Dancing Dolls, and think that is pretty cool too. Both of these pins signaled an end of an 'era' in pinball.

    Way off "BASE" but just a thought..... Maybe a Pitch & Bat. I find them a nice break from playing pinball and a lot of fun to work on so it may be good for you. Your friends will have a quick no thought involved experience batting a few balls and hearing the clink-clink sound you mentioned. They can even experience something similar to the dancing rubber dolls on your AFM with the running man unit backglass animation P&B games have.

    Episode 111 - Gottlieb 1960 Dancing Dolls Dancing Dolls is a woodrail, has lighted scoring, and has a unique backglass animation. Beyond the cool animation, the game has multiple pop bumpers, slings, rollovers, 2" flippers and some standup targets. Quite a bit to do, and the animation is incredibly neat.

    Why score reels over lighted numbers? Post #8 in topic

    Posted over 5 years ago by jrpinball – in EM Pinball Hangout ‐ Last reply over 5 years ago

    It could be Williams "Space Ship" (12/1961). I'll have to dig a little more, but that's pretty late for lighted scoring. The last Gottlieb with lighted scoring was "Dancing Dolls", and that's 5/1960.
