Afro Circus,[note 1] formerly known as Circus Zaragoza and then Fur Power Circus,[note 2] is a traveling European all-animal circus. Originally owned by humans, the Zoosters eventually bought the deed to the circus with the remains of the gems the penguins brought from Africa. With some improvements made in each animal performer's role and a revamped performance similar in style to Cirque du Soleil, Circus Zaragoza was a large enough hit to even obtain a tour in the United States. Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private help as backstage security while the Zoosters perform each of their various performances that they chose.
As told by Stefano, Circus Zaragoza was once a very popular circus. Under Vitaly's impossible hoop acts, the circus toured the world with soldout performances. However, the glory days were not meant to last. After Vitaly's disastrous failure during the flaming hoop act (due to too much flammable olive oil) Circus Zaragoza plummeted.
The name of the circus comes from the city of Zaragoza situated in northern Spain, in the region of Aragón.
The Gang's Arrival
In the end, the Zoosters decide to join the circus and travel the world with it.
Currently, the circus's logo is "Fur Power" and the animals in the circus perform acts that are traditionally performed by humans.
The acts in the circus are as follows:
