Set against the backdrop of a traveling circus, ringmaster/ puppeteer and host Claude Kirchner would engage his viewers in stories, craftmaking, hobbies, games, informational segments, interviews with guest performers and personalities, while trying to surpress the wise cracks of his puppet pal "Clownie" and introduce reruns of old movies EG "Godzilla", "The Incredible Shrinking Man", Laurel & Hardy in "Pardon Us" and "Pack Up Your Troubles", "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" and "The Three Stooges" in "Have Rocket Will Travel!".

Kirchner and "Clownie" would continue to entertain and inform their viewers on "Super Adventure Theater" Saturday and Sunday mornings on Ch.9 until the station execs at WOR TV closed down"Super Adventure Theater" in 1967.
