Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
1960s Frankenstein POPSIES toy. A wooden hand-painted figure with hidden messages that pop up when you press down on the body.
Boris Karloff, the Monster.
The method of animating the creature is never discussed in Mary Shelley’s novel. In the book, Frankenstein, narrating, refuses to divulge how he did it so no one can re-create his actions. However, the use of lightning to resurrect the monster has become the accepted methodology and appears in virtually every Frankenstein movie since. (via)
