Diavolo was the man who first "looped the loop" at Madison Square Garden according to The Pictorial History of American Circus. Obviously that feat inspired the gum machine which was manufactured by Mercer Company and distributed by Caille in 1904. A few years later, Caille manufactured a similar machine called the Teddy Bear.
