Storyline

Live action TV series based on Disney's classic Dumbo, an elephant with the ability to fly (with the help of his trusty feather). The characters were all costumes (with the help of 'puppetronics', I believe, radio-controlled mechanisms pioneered by Jim Henson's "Fraggle Rock" and Disney's "Welcome to Pooh Corner". This series didn't produce too many episodes but ran for quite a while and was pretty popular for a cable series. Written by The Puppet Avenger

Looking for Movies of Old TV Show "Dumbo's Circus"
29 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am looking for any way to get the Disney TV Show "Dumbo's Circus" on DVD or VHS. It was my favorite show as a kid, and I'd LOVE to have it again! Has anyone ever found it anywhere? Or, does anyone have any ideas about the best way to find this show again? It was a great show for kids, and I remember all of the characters and their songs by heart. I've spent years asking and searching for this TV show, but it seems like it completely disappeared. It's not even on EBay! Does Disney keep archives of all of their television episodes? I would think they would, but I still cannot locate any source for information on "Dumbo's Circus." Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
