Cameras are old Kodak Brownies. You can pick them up for a song on eBay. I might have one of the flashes in my junk box. I'll look when I get home.

I think there's another camera between the speakers on the boom box. Looks like the back of a camera or a folding camera closed up.

Okay, I feel much better now knowing I'm not the only one dissecting Conky while I watch Pee-Wee's Playhouse. I was thinking about making the little whipped cream stop-motion character from the fridge. There are lots of goofy props on that show.

Looks like the very top of his head is the cowl of one of those old vacuums.

Good eye on the third camera, Probe Droid. Looks kinda like this one: Agfa Billy Record I suppose it could be any one of the folding bellows type.

Pretty sure the Brownies are the Brownie Hawkeye Flash model. Got one myself.

The boom box looks exactly like an 80'2 vintage Hitachi that Radio Shack carried. I'm trying to find pics.

I know, that show is filled to the BRIM with found parts. I used to watch it while I was a kid :) . What mystifies me is that this show is now re-running on Cartoon Networks ADULT SWIM. I was like :confused :eek "What's THIS show doing HERE.?.?."

BTW, His arms look like those sewage pipes used on RVs, his jaw looks like a cash register (to me anyway), and his stomach is a record player. I'm not good at I.D.ing, I just know basicly what the part is, not specificly.

The stomach is a record turntable, and the head is a diner individual-table jukebox (I think?).

Yeah the buttons along the bottom of the head look that way but the knob above them and the large plate make it look like the door to a small toaster oven. Maybe the buttons were grarfted on?

Three are a dearth of pics of Conky on the web... Anyone have the DVDs yet for screen grabs?

Does the row of buttons on the 'head' move? They appear to be a straight line in the first pic, yet they look like a smile in the second.

The head looks like an old cafe booth jukebox terminal to me.
