THE GREATEST SHOWFLEA – Itchus hilarious

Gnasher's Fleas: The Greatest Showflea

Once upon a time, the Greatest Showflea was just a regular flea but everything changed after reading about the famous Joseph Grimaldi – he was an entertainer who first wore white theatrical make-up and a big red nose. Once he learned about clowning, he was truly bitten by the circus bug!

The Greatest Showflea has got massive feet – his toes reach the end of his clown shoes – and is the only flea that Gnasher ever notices. Luckily, this theatrical performer doesn’t make Gnasher feel itchy, but tickles him instead. Maybe that’s why Gnasher laughs so much – something actually is tick-ling his funny bone.  

Their best friend is the Stink Flea because all clowns find bottom burps hilarious, even if they’re tiny squeaking sounds from a flea’s bum.

In return for providing a safe warm home and lots of tiny snacks, your adopted Showflea will (probably) provide hours of entertainment, which includes, but is not limited to:

-squirting miniature flowers

- entering and exiting small collapsing cars,

- throwing microscopic custard pies
