Parker Bros Merlin, Mattel Football & Baseball, MB Pocket Simon & Coleco Head to Head Baseball
used in the movie Wet Hot American Summer:

Several kids playing different handheld games in October Film's "Wet Hot American Summer" from 2001 (set in 1981).
In order: Parker Bros' Merlin, Mattel's Football, MB's Pocket Simon, Mattel's Baseball, Coleco's Head to Head Baseball.
Sound effects are from Merlin and Mattel's Football for sure, the last sound you hear I can't quite identify...
This is the second movie made in the last year that contain vintage handheld games (See above green paragraph).
Thanks to Ken Sabey for pointing this movie out to me!
