In the mid-1940s, Clarence 'Carnie' Calahan joined the circus, along with his roommates Tiny the Strongman, Lena the Fat Lady, and Major Midge the Midget.

The quick-witted, two-fisted Calahan was extremely protective of the business and his friends, and would always investigate any source of trouble which, at Colonel Lane's Mammoth Circus, was often criminal in origin.
