Cool find, Jim, it's always interesting to see what the actual value is for one of your own antique toys.

Serious money!

It does seem a little strange to me that a robot would be manufactured to .....laugh?
Shoot missiles, wave arms, travel across the floor, make weird noises, flash lights etc. but laughter is not usually associated with a robot.
What does it laugh at? Does it tell jokes?

That's a laugh bordering on maniacal hysteria!
Never knew that robots had teeth.
Certainly a fun piece. Do you know his vintage?

Vintage?
The Robot I have was made in 1969...Its one of the first ones made... It has 2 battery compartments.
One compartment runs the robot the other compartment makes him laugh...
Soon after they changed to one battery compartment which ran everything...
http://www.attackingmartian.com/happyharry_extra.html
"ABOVE, LEFT: Happy Harry was so new when this photo was taken for Spiegel's 1969 Christmas Catalog that the chestplate is missing. Happy Harry continued laughing through the pages of Spiegel Christmas catalogs for four consecutive years starting in 1969. Spiegel's price would remain constant at $9.77 each year. Description notes that Harry "Runs on 2 'D' batteries and one 'C' battery. Early production examples of Harry have two battery boxes, one in the base, a second in the center of the back just above the speaker opening. • ABOVE UPPER RIGHT: Straco Box for Harry depicts the robot with green eyes. Clever use of capital letters makes the the "HA HA" in HAppy HArry stand out. • ABOVE LOWER RIGHT: Happy Harry's contagious smile."

So he went from $10 to $400 in 50 years?
Anything vintage tin-plate sells for big money these days, ...and robots seem particularly popular.
I do hear that there's a lot of modern repro stuff around though.
Great link!
Does yours have light-up eyes? Can't really see in the video.
