Set-Up

The Squirrels look for Duggee and find someone they don’t recognise. It turns out to be Duggee dressed as a clown because the circus is coming to town. The Squirrels don’t know what a circus is. It’s a wonderful show in a big tent with trapeze artists, jugglers, strongmen, acrobats, clowns, magicians and stunt moles. Duggee loves the circus, he has his Circus Badge.
