OK Nick, time to pick your brain again.

This may seem like a dumb question, but were the horse and donkey live animals, stuffed animals ...

It'd be interesting to see, since I had heard somewhere that TPiR, at this point in the series anyway, once gave away live animals as prizes long before Bob got into animal rights and began saying "Have your pets spayed or neutered."

BTW I believe they also gave away live pets on the Cullen TPiR too.

Other than that, the highlight is the curious game of Double Digits. By my calculations, the prizes' values would be $28 for the cooler, $46 for the jewelery, $10 for the dictionary and $83 for the electric grill.

Those were definitely toys. FAO Schwartz is (or was) a toy store.

And yep, the Cullen TPIR gave away live animals. One show I wish there was a clip for is the show where they brought out an elephant as part of a bonus. The critter proceeded to relieve itself on the stage!
Bureaucracy is cutting the red tape lengthwise.

There was also a showcase in the very early years of the Barker version where a live dog was the last prize in a showcase.
