SCENE 1
Oscar, Slimey and Lexine have joined the others as they crouch down to watch the circus from the tent openings. An announcer (Jim Martin) welcomes the crowd to the Wiggling Bros. Circus "Little Big Top" and introduces the first act - Eely Kinevil, who will fire himself from a cannon and land on someone's head. Oscar volunteers Telly, who's too scared to watch. The crowd counts backwards from 10 and Eely is launched from his cannon and lands right on Telly. The crowd goes wild, but Oscar isn't impressed; he thinks Slimey could do better.
