[Unlocated] Dumbo's Circus (TV Series)
« on: December 08, 2013, 03:46:19 AM »
So I recently remembered that I used to watch this show when I was really little.  It's a live action costume/puppet show that featured Dumbo the elephant - apparently all grown up, and running his own circus. :) ...and he now has the ability to talk. lol.

His circus is comprised of a group of his animal friends, all anthro, and they're played by people in costumes.  It kind of makes me laugh now, because the costumes are basically fursuits, reminiscent of the really nice stuff you'd see at conventions - moving jaws, animatronic eyes, etc.  I swear, it's like anthrocon for kids! Lol.  :D  The show's pretty "kiddie-ish", but anybody who likes fursuits might get a kick out of that aspect.  (maybe I was a furry waaaayyy before I knew it). :)

Anyway, I'm getting off topic here.  From what I can remember, in a handful of episodes, Dumbo actually sneezes, and his sneezes are always really strong.  Like there's a big buildup, and he even does damage sometimes!  There's a mention of it in the show's Wikipedia article:

" Being an elephant, Dumbo's memory is usually very good (based on the expression "An elephant never forgets."), his hearing is very sharp and sometimes his sneezes are often strong - strong enough to cause some wind."

I've been trying to see if I can find some sneeze clips from the show, but there's only a few episodes on YouTube, and so far I haven't found any sneezes. :(  Thought I'd post this, because maybe somebody else who cares to look will have more luck than me.  Anyway, here's the intro for the show:

I think I remember one in that series. The gorilla has a flower (I think it was a sunflower) that causes Dumbo to sneeze. It also grows super big and I remember it causing Dumbo to sneeze again while flying around the giant flower.

Wow, I don't remember that one with the sunflower, but it sounds like it would be great to see!  ;D  The one in particular that I remember most was one where the characters were all looking for a place to stay, and at one point they end up together in a crowded space that belongs to one of Dumbo's friends (a cat named Sebastian).  While they're all sitting inside Sebastian's place, Dumbo suddenly says "Uh oh...I think I'm gonna sneeze..."  And he starts to buildup to it, "ah...ahhh...AAHH" and the whole time, Sebastian's going, "No...no...NO!!!"  And when he finally sneezes, it's really big, and sends objects flying everywhere. :)

Wow, thanks for taking the time to do that SnEeZy!  Yes, you might very well be right about those two episodes.  I hope we can find them.  So far, it seems like this show's episodes are hard to come by.

I have nothing useful to add but this show was a huge part of my childhood, along with with the live-action Winnie the Pooh series... same style of actors in proto-fursuits. I definitely remember the elephant sneezing, I poked around for some episodes a couple years back but didn't have much luck.

Holy shit those things are so much creepier than I remembered, though. BUH.

Ugh there's like...no sourcing for this show. One or two episodes, if any, are on YouTube or Dailymotion, I think. Nothing on iTunes or the like. Obscure 80s at it's finest @_@

Oh, I totally forgot about the Winnie the Pooh live action series!  Yeah, that was one of my faves too.  Good old vintage Disney Channel.  And lol yeah really.  I don't know if I find them creepy, but they definitely are different than I remember. :P

And yeah, seems like there's nothing out there for this show.  I hope that maybe we'll see more down the road.
