Meet Circus Boy (1956)

Circus Boy

After his parents, "The Flying Falcons", were killed in a trapeze accident, young Corky (Mickey Braddock, whose real name is Micky Dolenz, later of The Monkees) was adopted by Joey the Clown (Noah Beery, Jr.), and the whole Burke and Walsh Circus family. The young lad quickly found a role in the circus as water boy to Bimbo, a baby elephant whom Corky would come to consider his pet. Riding Bimbo's back, Corky dealt with adolescent problems, and helped the show's adults, including owner Big Tim Champion (Robert Lowery) and head canvasman Pete (Guinn Williams), keep the circus in the black as the show moved from town to town each week.
