Mechanical Boucher Punchinello whose arms and legs go up and down when the chain is pulled.  Boucher did a series of mechanical pieces, including a Cambodian (arms and legs go up and down), a pelican (mouth opens and there is a fish), and a jester whose head moves back and forth (see next picture).
