Video: Singing Sam the Gorilla Man in 1880 Cowboy Town

1880 Cowboy Town

Buffalo Ridge, South Dakota

The only explanation we can conjure for this monstrosity is that it was made by the same wandering robot craftsman who created Wall Drug's old Singing Sam the Gorilla Man. Both are coin-operated animations with a badly stitched gorilla pawing "Pop Goes the Weasel" on a piano.

1880 Cowboy Town is full of other animated surprises; Sam is down in entrance building next to the elaborate animated saloon scene. [0:39]
