The Big Top

    (Toby, 1951)
and 1951 Station WCAU Philadephia, Penna, an affiliate of the Columbia Broadcasting System

Big Top Comics, based on an early 1950s television program of the same name, featured a variety of circus-themed stories centered on the cast of TV characters. The heroes included Ringmaster Jack, the gruff but fair circus boss; Topper the Boy Acrobat, an intrepid, if slightly dense, trapeze artist; and assorted clowns, animal trainers, and pretty-girl dancers. The book also offered games and puzzles for younger readers, and the obligatory text-only story as well.

Big Top folded its tents after only two issues.
