Batman '66 Blu-Ray Box Set Battery

OK, I have a question for the community: I have the Batman '66 series blu-ray box set, the one that came with the Hot Wheels Batmobile, the replica Topps cards, etc. You might remember that the box itself has a pushbutton on the side that played the opening bars of the Batman theme ("Na na na na na na na na Batman!") which I presume was powered by a thin button battery somewhere in the cardboard. I know it's not supposed to be replaceable, but has anyone tried? I'd love to either replace it, or at least get it out of there before it leaks, without doing significant damage to the box, which I really like. I wish I had access to an x-ray machine, or a TSA luggage scanner, so I could get an idea of the insides of this thing, but sadly I have neither of those things. Any thoughts on the best way to proceed?

is there a small speaker? or is it one of those cheap tiny greeting card "press here" thingies that play a message? It might be a single complete unit, but if it's laminated between the paper, :eek:

I expect it's exactly what you suspect -- I see no speaker and it's definitely a "Press Here" thing on the side of the box, so I expect it's stuck in between the layers of paper. I'm tempted to CAREFULLY take an X-Acto knife to try to split the side of the box apart, but man, I do hate to ruin that box if I mess up. It is a pretty nice box, after all. Maybe I can experiment with a greeting card first? Assuming a similar layout, actually looking at one of the things might give me a better idea of how to approach this, or to just leave it alone.
