Telltale. Sue. NOW!!*
Your animated Lincoln statue came out two years before this one. In fact, if I remember correctly, the first Night at the Museum came out when you debuted the Lincoln we know and love. (And if I'm wrong, please correct me.)
Just giving you a heads up since my theatre got the promo posters today for the film. And when I saw that, I screamed "DOES TELLTALE KNOW ABOUT THIS?!"
* = I'm kidding about suing.
It came out in 2005, Sam & Max Episode 4 came out in 2007, Telltale wins by two years!
Actually, that puts it in some rather sticky grey area. It takes about 2 years for a movie to be produced, so God knows when the animated Lincoln statue idea for the movie was actually put to pen for the studio.
But still, Telltale did it first.
