That’s one of two I recall seeing as a child. WAY back in the early 70’s I saw one for a book advertisement. The setting was, I think, a child’s bedroom. It had the cymbal toy monkey on a dresser clanging away with its back to the camera. In the end it turns around. The camera zooms in on its face and it smiles with blood dripping from its teeth.

This is the one I remember. Though I could’ve sworn the monkey was wearing a red vest.
