Notes: Same playfield layout as Gottlieb's 1954 '4-Belles'. 'Dragonette' artwork satirized the popular 'Dragnet' television show. David Gottlieb hired singer Jessica Dragonette to appear at coin machine functions. However, Michael Gottlieb informed us that his father Alvin remembered no correlation between her and the Dragonette pinball machine, and that this pinball machine was purely a spoof of Dragnet. An audio satire of the TV show, St. George and the Dragonet, was recorded by Stan Freberg in 1953.
