Sylvester figure from 1968

Here's a really cool item I picked up over Thanksgiving. It's a vinyl Sylvester figure from 1968, made by Dakin Co. and copyrighted by Warner Bros.-Seven Arts. The tail , arms and head are "poseable", that is, the head rotates, the tail swivels and the arms move up and down. It still has the original tail and whiskers, and aside from a little wear here and there, it's in pretty good shape for its age. It's unusual to find Warner character merchandise from the late sixties that is actually "on model", but this is a nice exception.

Isn't this the same Sylvester figurine that appears in Bugs Bunny Superstar?

Hey! If this is made how I think it's made, I have a Wile E Coyote and Road Runner pair! The RR Head squeeks when you squeeze it, too!
Too bad they're 1000+ miles away :(
