Classic 1900's bike carousel

I'm looking for the classic 1900's bike moving-picture carousel

I'm sure a lot of you have seen it before. It's a small, carousel-like device with several pictures of a man on an old-timey bike. When it moves, it shows the man actually riding the bike. Can anyone tell me the name of the device?

A Zoetrope or a Praxinoscope?
