Jack “Sully” Sullivan, the owner of Sully’s Safety Circus, has a problem. Louie the Lightning Bug is coming to visit! That’s not the problem. The problem is the city is sending an inspector to see if Sully and his performers are using electricity safely. Sully doesn’t know anything about electrical safety. If the city shuts down his circus, he’ll be ruined. Ruined! Luckily, Sully has some friends who know a thing or two about electricity. With their help, can he learn enough to pass inspection? And will he learn it in time to meet Louie? Watch and find out!
