Trivia

During the show's run, the producers decided to send Micky Dolenz on a promotional tour (together with the show's baby elephant), and that an added attraction would be to have him play guitar and sing. Dolenz was sent for a round of guitar lessons, and alternated between music and tricks with the elephant for the tour. See more »

I watched this when I was 16 years and enjoyed every minute of it
25 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

I watched this when I was 16 years old never knowing this little boy would grow up to be later on the monkeys a musical program.I also remember Noah Berry Jr. in this show who later would be James Garners father in Rockford files.I learned to know him on this show and saw him a lot more shows in years to come to always enjoy his acting. I remember this show Circus Boy and wondered who this little boy was. If I remember correctly this was on Saturday morning I'm not sure tho.It was a good show as I remember I always enjoyed it I watched it every week faithfully.It is good to have these websites to enjoy these old shows over again and to find out thing about them. Thanks a lot for the info.
