The Flip Wilson doll from the 1970s was a toy made in the likeness of the American comedian and actor Flip Wilson, who was popular at the time for his television show “The Flip Wilson Show.”
The Flip Wilson was a two sided stuffed doll and was modeled after the comedian and his alter ego Geraldine Jones. On one side, the doll was Geraldine and Flip could be found on the other side.
The doll has two talking characters in one doll by just pulling the talking ring. It uses Flip Wilson’s real voice, with ten random sayings and no batteries needed.
