Thanks to that unscrupulous villain, ringmaster Conrad Mooch, and his partner, Patty Larceny,
the Pampermouse Circus is stranded, minus many of its star attractions. Jumbo, the elephant,
is missing, and so is Jo-Jo, the loony chimpanzee. Even the dancing bear has waltzed off.
Not content to be just the ringmaster, Mooch has a dastardly plan. The circus will belong to
him — and Miss Rosie, granddaughter of the owner, will be his bride. Besides keeping a leery
eye on Patty and her knife-tossing act, our villain must contend with Jim Nasium, the circus
roustabout who’s in love with Rosie. Hoping to demolish the performers’ spirits, Mooch
announces he has a sensational new act that will save the struggling big top — INVISIBLE
Russian Wolfhounds! Naturally, it flops and it looks as if it’s curtains for the greatest little
show in town. But Jim takes center ring and saves the day! The open stage is the basic set,
and the cast is a parade of howlingly funny characters — The Great Flamo! Helen Highwire!
Mary and Jane, the Siamese twins! Toss in some townsfolk and schoolkids, and you’ve got a
rollicking, high-spirited romp that’s fun for children of all ages.
