Here’s a commercial for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which came to Connecticut in May 1986. At the time, it was featuring a “living unicorn” attraction. The circus was at the Hartford Civic Center (now the XL Center) from May 6th through May 11th and at the New Haven Coliseum (demolished in January 2007) from May 13th through May 18th. The commercial aired in May 1986.

  1. I miss the annual ‘Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey Circus Highlight’ specials that used to air annually on NBC and then on CBS to very high ratings, but these specials just stopped airing in the ’80s.
