Marvin is a performer in a small country carnival with his dear friends Stripes the Tiger, Elizabeth the Emotional Pig, and Diamonds the Elephant. Although life in the carnival is good, Marvin dreams of making it big on Broadway.

Swifty Calico the talent agent spots Marvin and rides him to New York City. After some hard times, Marvin's dream comes true as the star of the hit musical Whoa, Dolly! Marvin is now the toast of Broadway, but he knows that something important is missing -- his friends.

Let Betty and Michael Paraskevas's Marvin tap-dance his way into your heart.
