SANTA'S CHRISTMAS CIRCUS - "Something Weird Video" (1966)

"Enchanting Excitement For Young And Old Alike!"
That's right kids, it's Santa"s Christmas Circus," and admission was only one dollar! No Sir, it just don't get any better than that!

There is something about the title "Santa's Christmas Circus," that makes me feel like it should really read "Santa's Psycho Christmas Circus!"

Damn! Just having Santa wasn't good enough? We get Whizzo The Clown Too?
What a great buy one, get one free deal!

You can basically do anything your little heart desires in "Santa's Christmas Circus" like ride a magic carpet! Just make sure that magic carpet isn't "The Creeping Terror" by mistake!

It was a dark and cold and snowy night!

Here's Whizzo!! 
"Who's always smiling, never sad? It's Whizzo!
Who makes the boys and girls so glad, Whizzo.
He's a merry fellow with a big red shiny nose,
Dressed in crazy mixed up clothes
From his head down to his toes." 
For the whole Whizzo story, head on over to the Kansas Historical Society's page dedicated to The Whizz himself! What a cheese!!

And if you don't think it's a "CIRCUS OF FUN," then listen to this, and you just might change your mind!

Frank Wiziarde was Whizzo on TV in Kansas from 1954 to 1987!
Wow! That's a lot of clowning around!

I think you're starting to get the idea, but don't get too curious, because this short trailer for "Santa's Christmas Circus" is all that's left! There are supposedly no complete versions of the movie in existence today!

Now if we only had a time machine like Whizzo did, we could go back in time and watch the whole thing!! 
Maybe some day!

But for now, if you want a larger dose of X-Mas madness from the past, you can find this trailer, and a whole bunch of other Christmas crap on a Something Weird Video titled:

Jeez, Whizzo looks like Moe in a clown outfit and a wheelchair! 

Any way you want to spell it, a Christmas Circus should be a "Festive treat for all the family!"
Personally, I would never even think about going to a circus during the holidays, because once the kids all start running around hyped up on new toys, Christmas day is usually enough of a circus right here at home!

I put these two pictures together because I was just imagining what you could do if you combined these two acts! The guys backflip blindfolded right into the pool! Aw, nevermind, they probably already do that in some Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas! Well, at least the posters are cool anyway!
