Star Micky Dolenz's hair was dyed blond for his role; he grew the dye out after the series ended. Years later when a reporter asked him why his hair looked different, Dolenz joked "I guess you could say I'm a Hollywood phony from way back." See more »
Loved this program as a youngster. Once had a book based on it too. Had not realized "Corky" went on to star with the Monkees(a vastly underrated group IMO). Good, wholesome entertainment from the "Leave it to Beaver" era. Would love to see it come out on DVD. It was never dull-there were often tense moments. It was drama , not comedy.
"Big Tim" was the most memorable of the other characters. And then there was a lady who played Corky's real mother, and wanted him to leave the circus in some episodes. And of course there was the circus animals.
Are there other "Circus Boy" fans out there? Maybe we can get something going on the Message Board.
