Status: Partially Found

Dumbo's Circus was a Disney Channel show in the 1980s. The show was loosely based on the 1941 animated movie Dumbo but differed in the fact that the only character from the movie in the show was Dumbo. The show used the same costume style that Welcome to Pooh Corner did. The show received no home media release of any kind, so only a few episodes have been saved since reruns stopped in 1997.[1] Because of the lack of home media release, and rarity of home recording systems at the time of the show's run, episodes are very difficult to come across.


According to a Hello Giggles article, the show is a puppet show and is a sequel to the original Dumbo film. The premise is supposed to be about Dumbo as an adult who is running his own circus by this time.[2]

Episode List

There were 115 episodes of the show. There are some episodes on YouTube that have not been matched with episodes. Since the show doesn't have episode titles, people uploading episodes have to guess what the episodes are, if they try at all. All episode names have been found except for the 115th, so it is possible there were only 114.

An asterisk (*) denotes episodes that were at one point found, but for which all previously available uploads have become unavailable.
