Object theatre performance with elements of circus and magic

A circus artist and master of magic Jokus von Pokus takes care of an orphan, a thumb size boy whose parents are world's smallest circus acrobats, but have disappeared during the tour in Paris. A thumb size boy Max now is travelling the world together with Jokus von Pokus. One day, when the boy is old enough he decides to become a circus artist. Unfortunately, nothing comes out of it! Max takes courage to improve some of the existent circus performances without a notice thus ruining the whole show! Jokus von Pokus and other circus artists become angry with a boy. While dreaming boy realises that one has to study hard to become a master of magic. Could there be a better teacher in the whole universe than Jokus von Pokus?
