Dallas, TX, May 30, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- A young boy sits on the couch staring at a screen. He’s watching a TV show that is hosted by a magician and his clown sidekick. They are performing magic, announcing multi-talented variety artists and introducing cartoons that were created in the 30s, 40s and 50s. The kid isn’t watching Mark Wilson’s “Magic Land of Alakazam.” He isn’t watching “Wonderama” or the myriad of local cartoon shows of the past either. The screen he’s watching the show on isn’t even a traditional television (although it could be). He’s watching Kartoon Circus on his grandmother’s smart phone and she’s right next to him, thrilled to see the cartoons from her youth again.
Each episode features some of the best Classic Cartoons staring many favorite characters including Popeye, Betty Boop, Buzzy and Molly Moo Cow. These wonderful cartoons come from the time when cartoons were hand drawn and not computer generated.
Kartoon Circus is a delightful E/I (Educational/Instructional) series. It features Dal Sanders as the Magical Ringmaster and his co-host “Boopsie the Clown,” played by Cinde Sanders along with their lovely assistant Lacey Bellamy. The show also features guests including Circus Artists, Raphaële Daubois and Joseph Gibby, juggler Jeff (Tharpo) Tharp, Margaret Clauder as Mother Goose and Pix Smith performing marionettes.
Every episode also features magic and educational segments on various topics including Ecology, Recycling, Energy Conversation, Science, the importance of books and reading, safety, drug and alcohol prevention and Character Building.
Kartoon Circus is reminiscent of the children’s television of decades past. It’s the kind of program that parents love for the nostalgia and that children love because there is nothing else like it on the air.
Kartoon Circus is a nationally syndicated series that can be seen on Saturday mornings on Hot-TV. It can also be seen twice daily on Spydar-TV. Spydar-TV is a multi-platform television network that can be seen in several US markets as well as online via a free app for smart phones and tablets.
