Based on the classic children's novel, Toby Tyler is ideal material for a Disney movie. You may remember Kevin Corcoran from several other Disney classics, including Swiss Family Robinson, Old Yeller, etc. and so forth. Here he plays a young boy who runs away from home and joins the circus. The circus adventure and comedy is a bit predictable, but well played and well served by the high Disney production values with great color, stunts, etc.

My favorite part of the movie involves Toby Tyler learning to ride and do stunts standing on a horse, and they have him tied to a pole that swings around a post to follow the galloping horse. I can't describe the scene in words, you just have to see this bit of comic genius. It's worth the price of the DVD for this one segment alone.

But if that's not enough for you, you get a plethora of circus performances and exotic animals in color. Highly recommended for the whole family to watch together.

Toby Tyler, is a wonderful movie! I really don't know what the fuss is about it being in wide or full screens. the VHS was a fullscreen tape, and it was great. so there is no need to be worried about the widescreen effect. Either way its a great family movie, with lots to say and teach us, about values, love, and friendships. I Suggest this movie to everyone!

We own an old VHS copy of Toby Tyler. Our 2 1/2 year old grandson, who is not interested in television, viewed this movie with amazement. He watched the entire movie and loved it.

Our Uncle Mike was Walt Disney's private chauffeur for years. We're sure Walt would want all his childrens movies released on DVD's,for our future generations.

This is a movie that I have been waiting for!! This is a great movie for the entire family. It is about a boy who wants to join the circus, but Mom and Dad won't hear a word of it. So Toby runs away from home to join the circus. Fall in with a crooked penut vendor who cheets him out of some of his pay. Is befreinded by an old circus clown and the strong man (both played in an tv series call " ZORO"). Toby is put in carge of a mischivious Chimpanzee, to keep him out of troubel. Learns to ride a horse in the circus after anccident happen to one of the star preformers. Tobys perents have been looking for thier lost son for a long time. When they do finialy find him, they find that he is a star in the circus. Tobys fanticy of becoming a star in the circus finally comes true.

I highly recomend this move. (personaly five stars is not enough to rate this move add 5 more stars).

One of the best childrens movie ever made. I saw this movie when I was a child at the theater. Sadley,It never came back to town. I have searched for this movie for years, Always hoping I might catch it on TV. Disneys older movies have a lot of little lessons our children could still learn. Disneys Best are still in their vault.

This Walt Disney movie has never had the exposure it deserves. I think that any of us who first saw it as young children in 1960, immediately wanted to run away to join the circus as young Toby did.

It is colourful, exciting in parts and always entertaining. Toby shows us that you can achieve anything if you really want to. He goes from being a lowly concessionaire to a star turn for the circus in just 10 weeks. The antics of Mr Stubbs the chimpanzee will have you laughing out loud often.

This is a movie for the young and young at heart, I love it!

"Toby Tyler" is an excellent family movie and a rare one as well since it is suitable for every member of the family. I have watched "Toby Tyler" multiple times and find it as enjoyable now as when I first saw it as a child.

Toby Tyler (Kevin Corcoran, who was a Disney regular as a child and appeared in "Polyanna," "A Tiger Walks," and "Old Yeller," among others) is orphaned and living with his aunt and uncle. However, life is hard for Toby and he feels unloved. After his uncle makes him feel like a burden, Toby runs away to join a circus passing through town.

Toby works as a concessionaire for Mr. Tupper (Bob Sweeney, who also appeared in Disney's "Moon Pilot" and "Son of Flubber), who manages to make it appear as though he is helping Toby when he cons Toby regularly. For example, Mr. Tupper convinces Toby that he must share his tips with Mr. Tupper. Toby also finds a protector in Ben Cotter (Henry Calvin, "Babes in Toyland" and Sergeant Garcia in Disney's 1950's television series "Zorro"), who turns out to be a good friend to Toby, along with clown Sam Treat (Gene Sheldon, who also appeared in "Babes in Toyland" and "Zorro) and chimpanzee Mr. Stubbs.

Life is initially difficult for naïve Toby. He has a hard time focusing on his job and keeping food from Mr. Stubbs. Even though chaos seems to follow Toby, an opportunity arises for Toby to take center stage at the circus. Somehow things just never seem to go well for Toby, and he decides to leave the circus, but tragedy strikes. The end of this movie will bring smiles and make you want to watch this movie again in the near future.

Kevin Corcoran seemed to play the same character again and again. However, Corcoran excelled in "Pollyanna" and "Toby Tyler.
