Long Description:
Zippy uses the superpower of flight to soars up the seven story building to help Nipper, the RCA Dog during an "emergency".

Nipper, the RCA Dog, is a 4 ton, 28' high steel and fiberglass statue of Nipper, the mascot of the former giant electronics company the Radio Corporation of America (RCA). In 1958 the statue was placed on top of a building that was once a warehouse for a distributor of RCA products.

Nipper was a 19th century English dog whose portrait was painted by the dog owner’s brother, Francis Barraud. The painting called “His Master’s Voice” depicted Nipper listening to a gramophone. It became an internationally known logo for RCA.
