President Lyndon Baines Johnson was known for his stories and his sense of humor. At the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum in Austin, Texas, an animatronic version of the 36th U.S. president continues his legacy, spinning tales and reciting jokes for adoring visitors.
This talking, gesturing robotic President Johnson is a highlight of the library. Animatronic LBJ was originally created for Neiman Marcus’s 90th anniversary celebration at its flagship store in Dallas. Dressed in casual ranch clothes for that display, including a checkered shirt and a Stetson, he originally sat in a pickup truck in front of a ranch backdrop.
