BlurbWhen he needs some money, Dr Dolittle decides to travel with a circus and show his amazing pushmi-pullyu to the world. The circus is different from others, because all the performers - people and animals - have as much fun as the audience.

In Doctor Dolittle's Circus the doctor needs money to pay off a voyage to Africa, so he joins a circus with the pushmi-pullyu as his attraction. He enlightens a circus owner who cares little for animals, fights against the practice of fox hunting and helps other creatures such as a circus seal and cart horses that are too old to work.
