A-Go-Go

Williams, 1966

Manufactured By: Williams Electronic Games, Inc.

Date: May 1966

Williams A-Go-Go, released in May of 1966, was a huge Success and the second Machine to feature the contemporary Artwork by Designer/Artist Jerry K Kelley.

Mr Kelley not only did the Artwork, he also designed the ‘Low-Charger’ Cabinet and invented the smooth Nylon-Buttons. Some years before he designed the famous Williams-Logo featuring the sharp-edged “W”

A-Go-Go had several Production-Runs and the last one already had the new-style Cabinet with the new triple-Chute-Front-Door, also designed by JKK.
This last version of A-GO-GO was some kind of ‘Limited Edition’ and would have been called so if it had happened in the 80ies or later.

The dancing Man with the stylish Beard is a Self-Portrait of Mr Kelley.

With a production-run of 5,100 it ranks #4 of the most succesful machines of the 1960’s right behind Gaucho, Capersville and Ship-Mates. The major part of them went to Germany.
