Robots at World's Fairs - Part 1

Robots have been stars at fairs since at least the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair. This cute little guy, Tik Tok, is from the 1964-1965 edition. I remember seeing him wandering happily around the grounds near the Japan Pavilion. I also remember looking around for the guy operating it but never did spot him. I wonder what became of Tik Tok after the fair ended. I'd like to think he's still out there somewhere...
