Celluloid Scans: 1960 Kenner Give-A-Show Projector

Maverick, Popeye, Brutus, Olive Oyl, Oswald, Curly, Larry& Moe...
Scans from the 1960 Kenner Give-A-Show Projector, which was basically a glorified blue flashlight that magnified still images from celluloid strip comics onto any flat surface.  Though I've had this toy for about 10 years, I never bothered to look closely at the "show" inside until now.  It seems that despite the toy's age, the slide strips (whose images are seen here totally unretouched) were in fantastic shape. 
BONUS:  The "Maverick" actually looks like James Garner!
