One of Micky Dolenz's competitors for his role in "Circus Boy" was singer-songwriter Paul Williams. Ten years later, Williams competed with Dolenz again, for a role in The Monkees (1966). Williams didn't resent Dolenz for beating him out twice, and the Monkees later recorded one of his songs, "Someday Man". See more »
Maybe now Circus Boy is not viewed as a good show, but I love it just the way it is. You cannot get programming like this anymore. Where the people on the series were nice and pleasant to each other. They even pray on the old shows. Something we don't do much of now days. I think there should be more up lifting shows on TV like Circus Boy, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, etc. They are great. Keep it up Antenna TV. You got my vote. I wish they'd get all the reruns they could and run them at Antenna TV. That is pretty much all I watch now. To many nut jobs on TV now. Cable is way too expensive!!! I buy DVD's with old programs on them and I watch all these great shows. There was a time when actors really acted and were talented. Now days someone is an actor because they made a sex tape.
