Clear passage for elephants.

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen.

Buy canes, whips buy.

Just one penny - and the ball is yours.

Just one penny, copper pennies.

Balls here.

One penny, copper pennies.

- Here are your tickets to the show.

My ball.

I want another one.

But the balls - all what you want

Come and enjoy.


Come and enjoy.

Faster, faster, faster.

Are you going?

No, sir.

Come and enjoy the view,


Here, young lady,

and thank you, ma'am, thank you very much.

Ladies and gentlemen, come here.

Fresh roasted nuts.

Peanuts, popcorn, apples in sugar

Fresh and delicious toffee.

Okay, guys, go here.

Nuts are grown on plantations

and cooked right here.

You just look

or want to buy something?

How much do you think nuts

can be bought for a penny?

In a normal situation

I do not sell for a penny.

- Hmmm ...

- However,

you cute little rooster

with money in hand,

And I would say,

I can give you six peanut nuts

directly from the plantations of Georgia.


More than if you

bought kulechek.

This is a serious statement.

Take it.

Come guys.

All fresh and tasty.

Delicious cold.

Peanut nuts from the plantation.

You change the corrupt?

Spoiled? I do not get

spoiled boy.

Maybe a bit overdone,

but not spoiled.


To you two. And run,

but then you miss the most interesting.

- I do not go there.

- Do not you go?

And, you have no money

on the ticket.

Yes, sir.

I thought your parents are here

with you.

No, sir, I do not have


You're an orphan?

Have you ever thought to act

in a circus, kid?


Imagine, to be part of the magnificent

team under the big top.

Teams of artists,

that travel along

and across the globe.

- How do you like this idea?

- But what can I do?

You could be ...

... Waiter.

I would be able to? ..

- Buff ...

- ... Fetchikom.

The ability to talk the language - very important

case, is not it, kid?

- Yes, sir.

- Free travel,

cozy sleeping place, food,

You could watch a representation at any time,

and enjoy it.

And if you will,

then every Saturday

Yours sincerely, Harry Tupper

will give you ...

... One of these.

What do you say, boy?


I would like this anymore


I would like, eh?

That's when I really needed to Uncle Daniel

and aunt, with whom I live.

Uncle and aunt?

They are very poor, and on my farm

always a lot of work.

I understand.

It does you honor.

I myself have a very loyal person

and I love to see it in others.

- I can ask them.

- Do not worry.

I will find a boy

in another city.

Many would like to have

such a possibility.

Okay, sir.

Anyway, thank you.

Wait a minute.

Come here.

Since we're already friends,

I want to give you a ticket

on today's performance.

- But Mr. ...

- Invite a friend and enjoy.

Thanks sincerely for your kindness

Gary Tupper.

- Mr. Tupper ...

- Good luck. Lemonade with ice.

Pink, cool

and invigorating.

Lemonade with ice.

Pink, invigorating. Lemonade with ice.

Hey, Red.

Ginger, look what I have.

Look, Red.

Do you think that is?

A free ticket to the circus.


- Hurray!

Where were you?

I ask, where were you?


Sorry, Uncle Daniel.

I would immediately return,

but there was a parade.

And by chance he passed

near the circus

and one man gave me

free ticket.

- Look.

- Circus?

Do not you know that wild boars
