Not terrible...and worth seeing for historical reasons.
6 February 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Between 1927 and 1934, Mickey Rooney made 78 Mickey McGuire films. Nearly all were shorts and they helped make him a popular star. The style of the films was very similar to the Hal Roach 'Our Gang' comedies which begin several years before the McGuire series. While you might argue the films were ripoffs of the Our Gang films, the films were actually based on a cartoon character. "Mickey's Circus" is the second film in the series and the first one where Rooney received top billijng.

As far as the film goes, it has two problems....most of the jokes aren't especially funny AND the ending on the version I found on YouTube is truncated. Worth watching for film historians and die-hard Rooney-philes...otherwise, you could do better.
