Wait, wait, you put a penny in... and it pees on you?

Help me find a Christmas present: an old bathroom ornament(?) that works when you put a penny in it.

My boyfriend was really sad when he wasn't bequeathed something his grandfather had on his toilet tank: a machine where a little man came out of an outhouse and peed real water on you when you put a penny in it. He says it was under a foot tall and either ceramic or painted metal. I'm imagining something made of metal only because my grandparents had a lot of cast metal penny toys when I was a kid, including one where a lion jumped through a hoop and grabbed your penny and put it in a barrel.
It had to be at least 35 years old. Unfortunately Google is not the place to search for anything involving bodily functions. Perhaps a Mefite ran across one of these as a kid or might at least know a more technical name for the figurine?
