A friend of mine does a cool variation on the mouse pitch.
He pitches a playing card instead of a mouse.
His pitch uses an "anti-gravity" angle that leaves the audience stunned.
The card flies around him spinning like a Frisbee.
Instead of the wax pellet he shows them an LED that sticks to the card.
This makes a nice effect as the card spins at high speed and flies around.

Way back at the beginning of this thread there's a reference to the 1939 World's Fair.

I was thrilled to find that out for myself, when putting togather my DVD "The Carnival's Been and Gone" using Internet Archive footage, particularly some 8mm home movies from 1939, one shot (it's only about 5 seconds, don't go rushing out to buy it for this...).

There's one VERY indistinct shot (took a lot of digital tweaking to zoom in and sharpen) of a guy in a top hat selling to a crowd, in front of a sign-board that you could JUST read: "WONDER MOUSE". I thought I was so darned cool for recognizing it. (I know, I get carried away with myself now and then...)

He who shan't be named has a book out call" Marmaduke the Wonder Mouse", good.

does John Bradshaw still make the one piece mouse ?
One of the last living 1-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.

Jay Marshal and Bob Brown did this for a bunch of us, at a seminar, many years ago when they were demonstrating the "Jam Auction". The smooth routine Jay showed us was really great. Almost bought one myself. Ended up thanking Bob for his assistance and buying him a drink.
