Final thoughts

“Big Top” is a good remake of “Bedlam in the Big Top”.  With its extended run time, its has more character development, makes a serious attempt in humor, and adds a surprise twist.  However, it doesn’t surpass the mystery and the imagination of the 1969 episode written in a vintage era.  Produced in 2012, “Big Top” predicted the end of animal circus acts.  The video isn’t the top of the list but as entertaining as many Scooby televison episodes.
