Steady Watson...

One of most famous characters in all the world is undoubtedly Sherlock Holmes. The Guinness Book of World Records claims he had been in more films than any other fictional character.

Therefore,  we here at Star Q's present his first film appearance ever in that classic detective story "Sherlock Holmes Baffled."  According to such crime writing legends as Raymond Chandler and James Patterson, Baffled is a soufflĂ© of a film, a delicate, sophisticated mystery solved through the most brilliant deductive reasoning ever witnessed on the silver screen. 

And now,  we proudly present:


Okay, maybe not.  Sherlock Holmes Baffled was actually a little trick photo clip created for those little arcade peepshow machines they used at the turn of the century.  It really has very little to do with the master detective and would probably nauseate Arthur Conan Doyle.  Nonetheless, it's one of those interesting little obscurities we specialize in here at Star Q's and we thought perhaps it would bring a twinkle to your eye.  Or if you're a Sherlockophile, a tear.

OK.  It's Not Robotic But I Couldn't Pass Up Posting It.  -Tom

To the cartoonists out there, I find myself thinking about the person(s) who designed and drew this advertisement.  He-She-They actually took the time to come up with names like, "Atomic Beam Director", "Fission Rate Indicator" and "Neutron Blast Initiator."  THAT is pride in your art and attention to detail.
