LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Two of the preschool crowd's biggest stars have joined the Disney-MGM Studios family of stars as JoJo and Goliath -- the popular pair that headline the hit Disney Channel series "JoJo's Circus" -- now appear daily in the "Disney's Stars and Motor Cars" parade.
On the show, JoJo, a six-year-old clown girl who sports a blue beret and bright red locks, joins her 'toon-proportioned pet lion, Goliath, in a variety of "do-along" movement activities, encouraging young viewers to join in the fun along the way.
Set in JoJo's hometown of Circus Town, the stop-motion animation series became an instant hit when it debuted on the Disney Channel in the "Playhouse Disney" block of programming in late 2003. JoJo and Goliath made their debut in the Disney-MGM Studios parade on April 25, 2004, joining the cast of "Playhouse Disney" along the parade route.
In summer 2004, the pair also will begin making meet-and-greet appearances in the theme park.
