This projector came up when I was doing a search for Give-A-Show Projectors... I don't know who made it, but the style of the slides seems similar to View-Master!

Here's another of those View-Master Double-Vue movie viewer cassettes, probably featuring abridged versions of the 1960s Marvel Superheroes cartoons!

Speaking of View-Master...

Sub-Mariner and Doctor Strange View-Masters! Yes, that's right, Doctor Strange! Wish I could check both of those out!
