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