Barnaby - The Circus (originally transmitted 25th April 1973)

Barnaby - the Circus

Barnaby has recently joined a circus and spends his time travelling around the countryside performing. This morning, the circus has arrived at the edge of a small town. The circus owner takes the caravan column straight into the heart of the town to begin setup of the big top tent. In the middle of the town, the town's folk are just waking up. The shops are beginning to open, firstly the Bakers and then the Butchers. Even the Mayor is up early opening up the large windows of his huge town house. In fact everyone appears to be awake apart from the town policeman. He is asleep on a street bench and is blissfully unaware of the arrival of the circus. The caravans grind to a halt and the circus owner tells everyone to setup the big tent. With all the moving and comings and goings, the noise wakes the policeman up. He is not very happy about the fact the circus is setting up right in the centre of town and even more unhappy about the illegal parking of the caravans. He thus decides to blow his whistle and run them all out of town. He pursues the vehicles towards the edge of town but Barnaby (who is a smart little bear) doubles back and drives towards the Mayors home. Upon arriving, the circus owner goes inside to butter up the Mayor and get permission to set up the circus. This he does much to the annoyance of the town policeman.

The Mayor is suitably buttered up and agrees that the circus can come to town. Mr. Pimoulu leaves the Mayor's offcie and walks past the policeman knowing he cannot touch him. Everyone has their instructions and all must go well for they intend to open the show that very night. Nighttime has arrived and the town's people head for the circus tent. There Mrs. Pimoulu takes the cash and hands out tickets. Inside, the show is about to start. Mr. Pimoulu appears and introduces the first act of the Monkeys. This goes down very well and then it is time for Sara the seal to do her juggling performance. Next up it is the three cats who do a triple trapeze performance. All is going brilliantly as Barnaby watches from behind a tent. Next up is Mr. Pimoulu himself with a magic act. He continues to butter up the Mayor by producing some flowers out of nowhere and delivering them to the Mayor and his wife (at least we presume she is his wife 1973 and all). Mrs. Pimoulu then appears and does a high wire act dressed in a small yellow costume. The crowd are very pleased with everything. Now it comes to the main event of the evening. Mr. Pimoulu introduces Barnaby who starts to sing, juggle, balance, do a high wire act and totally wows the crowd. He gets a standing ovation and is the talk of the town.

The next day the town's people are as usual getting ready for work but this time they are all singing, humming, whistling Barnaby's song. The circus, however, must pack up, leave and head for a new pot of gold (I mean to entertain new people in a new town). Mr. Pimoulu is very pleased as he has two huge bags of money. The circus pulls out as the town children wave good-bye to Barnaby.

Time for the circus to leave town Mr Pimoulu has made bags of cash Barnaby waves goodbye to the town's children
