Unfortunately no. If I had one of those I would keep the package for
myself and get a II with which to play around with it. A quick
look through the manuals turned up only this from Chapter 3:

  This section introduces you to programming by learning to control a
  computer creature known as a turtle. The first Logo turtle was a
  robot; it looked like a big cannister and moved about on wheels.
  It was attached to a computer by a long cable and could draw lines
  on the floor, which normally was covered with paper.
  Our turtle, however, lives on the computer screen. It also has a pen
  and can write with it on the screen..."
