I used to have an image of a magazine ad from circa a hundred years ago. It is for a “night mare” (in large text, with other descriptive text that followed) and has a drawing of several people sitting on a weird dragony thing. It was some sort of ride-able (or at least sit-on-able) novelty thing that was either 7 or 9 feet long. I lost the image years ago and have never been able to google it up again.
Was it this?

Yep, got it in one.
They really enjoyed electrocuting people.
