This Saturday morning variety show from ABC presented circus acts against the backdrop of a western rodeo ranch called ‘Acrobat Ranch’.
The show also featured a game segment where children chosen from the studio audience competed against each other in game contests for merchandise prizes.
The host was Uncle Jim (Jack Stillwell) and gymnasts Flying Flo (Valerie Alberts) and Tumbling Tim (Billy Alberts) were featured.
Acrobat Ranch was one of the first shows to air on Saturday mornings. The other was Animal Clinic.
The live Chicago-based show had the General Shoe Corporation as sponsor on behalf of its Acrobat Shoe Division.
