After his parents were killed in a high-wire accident, ten year-old Corky Wallace was adopted by the circus owner, Big Tim Champion. Corky rode his baby elephant Bimbo, dealt with his adolescent problems, and helped the adults keep the circus in the black as the show moved from town to town each week.
Corky shared screen time on the live-action Circus Boy with clown Uncle Joey and the always energetic Pete. Corky's pet chimpanzee was called Bobo. Other featured animals were Sultan, the tiger and Nuba the Lion.
Young Mickey Braddock, who played Corky on the show, took back his birth name of Mickey Dolenz when he shot to fame as the drummer for the 60's television pop group The Monkees. He is the son of George Dolenz who starred in the children's adventure series "The Count of Monte Cristo"
