Almost everyone in town knew Bailey as the Junkyard Elephant because the Zookeeper would allow Bailey to leave the zoo everyday to spend time at the junkyard performing his stunts. In the junkyard, Bailey could use his imagination, a few selected props and his astounding acrobatic skills to create death-defying stunts. Dexter, who was the owner of the junkyard, loved watching Bailey design and perfect his stunts. When the circus came to town, Bailey, along with many other animals with circus dreams, couldn't wait to show off his amazing acrobatic skills. The Ringmaster, however, didn't think a great big zoo elephant would be a good fit for an acrobatic routine. Little did he kw what kind of special performing gifts an ordinary elephant from the zoo could have. With the help and encouragement of Flat-Top Sam and his dog Max, the Ringmaster would come to learn that Bailey was more than just an ordinary zoo elephant.
