Bit of a long shot but this is driving me mad! Can anyone remember the name of a doll sold in the 1970's that you could pull its head away from its body and it spoke to you while the head retracted back to the body (weird i know!) it said things like "Whoops, there goes my head agian" and various other sentences.

Anyone old enough to have a memory that goes back that far? lol!
