Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was founded in 1919 with the merging of the circuses owned by P. T. Barnum, James Anthony Bailey, and the Ringling Brothers. It is often touted as "The Greatest Show on Earth", and still tours (with two individual troupes) today.

The Muppets have featured the circus on several occasions.

  • In a Sesame Street video segment, David Larible, a clown from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, appears with his daughter.
