Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

VAUDEVILLE DOG ACT: HECTOR & HIS PALS

I think as late as the fifties they were trying to revive Vaudeville. I remember a show that came to my hometown called "The Best Is Yet To Come" Here's a cute little dog act from a 1950's era, maybe some one out there knows who it is. (I received an email from Stacy Moore that his cousin Bob identifies this act as, "Hector & His Pals".)

He's on Yankee Doodle this season!

Several years ago a fresh-faced, newly-minted newspaper reporter wants an interview.

reporter, "What's Yankee Doodle Circus all about?"

me, "We're the ED SULLIVAN SHOW for kids."

Reporter jots down in notebook and whispers "We're...the...Ed...Sullivan...Show...for...kids."

Reporter, "OK, who's Ed Sullivan?"
