In mid-1966 the Bally Pinball-Division did poorly after 2 successful years.

The huge success of Williams A-Go-Go released in May 1966 impressed Bally and they asked art designer Jerry K Kelley to do the art for their next Four-Player. Ted Zale designed the game, one of the known 77 games that he designed for Bally.

Capersville was produced for 7 months, became the most successful Flipper-Game for Bally ever and held this Position until 1973.

JKK from then on did Artwork exclusively for Bally until early 1969 when he left the Pinball-Industry.
