Sea lions do tricks as a circus prepares for the summer tour.
Titles read: "Seal Ho! The Circus Stars are in training for the Summer tour."
Peru (?), Indiana, United States of America.
Various shots of Roland Habler (sp? Habbler?) and his trained sea-lions practising tricks from their act in a yard. One seal catches hoops around its neck, another climbs to the top of a ladder while balancing a ball on a pole on the end of his nose. Roland throws a ball to the same sea-lion, who keeps tossing it back with his nose. A seal balances a ball on his nose and walks around with it, out of the shot and past some camera lights. Another plays a tune by honking some horns with his nose.
An elephant wearing a hat, glasses and a fake beard walks across the yard and seems to dance a few steps.
