Dumbo's Circus was a live action/puppet television series that aired on The Disney Channel. It was loosely based on the 1941 movie Dumbo. It was notably the longest-running Disney Channel original series, lasting for 120 episodes until Phineas and Ferb broke the record.
Dumbo has now grown up, he is able to speak and has started his own circus. It travels from town to town by means of a wagon drawn by Dumbo as he flies, and bills itself at the "Greatest Little Show in Earth." Other performers include Lionel, Q.T., Sebastian, Fair Dinkum, Lilli and Barnaby. Each had their own talent. Other than Dumbo, no characters from the original film appear.
The show began airing in 1983, but was removed from The Disney Channel when it began to run commercial breaks in 1997. Unlike Welcome to Pooh Corner, the series never had any VHS, DVD or Blu-ray releases. All the characters were portrayed by live actors in specially designed puppet suits, similarly to Welcome to Pooh Corner, which aired during the same timespan. The flying wagon that was used on the show's opening theme is now located at the back lot of Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort.
