Fisher-Price Movie Viewer or Movie Viewer Theater (1973)

These famous stars of stage, screen and television are ready to play with your child for hours. Presented by Fisher-Price.

Instead of taking your child to the movies, you can take the movies to your child, with the Fisher-Price Movie Viewer or Movie Viewer Theater.

And what’s playing is — your child, with the Pink Panther, Cookie Monster, Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Big Bird, Snow White, Pluto, Dumbo, Pinocchio… to name a few.

What’s more, they can be run furiously fast, in slow motion or backwards, just by turning the handle.

There are 20 different movie cartridges you can buy — each one a full-color cartoon that your child can see over and over and over, all by himself.

Now that you’ve had the previews, get some more cartridges. (And a Movie Viewer if you don’t already have one.) They’ll be one of the biggest attractions in your house.

The Fisher-Price Movie Viewer.

It’s like going to the movies. Only better. Because now children can run them all by themselves, just by turning a handle. In slow motion, speeded up or backwards.

Each Movie Viewer comes with one film cartridge that slips into place. There’s “On My Way to Sesame Street” with its popular characters, or Walt Disney’s “Lonesome Ghosts” starring Mickey Mouse.

You’ll find the 16 other film cartridges shown below, where the Movie Viewer is sold.

The Fisher-Price Movie Viewer can be used indoors or out. And it runs on child power, not batteries.


Fisher-Price gives kids a chance to run the show

You’ll enjoy the giggles that erupt when they run our cartoon movies at fast speed, in slow motion and backwards. Just by turning a handle.

First there’s our new Movie Viewer Theater. Pictures appear either on its own viewing screen, or by projecting them on a wall. It uses a child-safe plug that steps down voltage. And there’s a handy carrying handle on the back.
