Disneyland's Carousel of Progress

The Audio-Animatronics figures created by Disney in the 1960s are among the best and most life-like. This image, of the boy in the Carousel of Progress show, always causes my jaw to drop. He's veeeery real, and only in close-up shots like this can you detect any artifice. Created almost half a century ago, these figures by Walt Disney's talented artisans are still the "state of the art" in my opinion.
