Jerry is chased into a circus, where he removes a tack from the foot of an elephant. This gets him a friend for life, and a powerful ally in the continuing battles with Tom, not that it stops Tom from trying, even when Jerry becomes part of the act.Written by

The title for this mid '60s T&J short suggests mayhem at a funfair, but actually takes place at a circus. Close but no cigar.
While escaping from Tom, Jerry sneaks into a circus and encounters a crying elephant; after pulling a tack from the poor pachyderm's foot, Jerry finds himself with a new, very sizeable friend who will do anything to protect the mouse from pesky Tom.
While the circus setting makes a nice change from the usual housebound action, director Abe Levitow, new to the Tom and Jerry series, fails to deliver many applause-worthy gags, the humour frequently falling flatter than a big top without a tent pole. Levitow eventually resorts to that old Chuck Jones standby, the stick of dynamite, but even that fails to raise a laugh. Better luck next time, Abe.
