Having stumbled upon a newspaper ad placed by "Mingling Brothers Circus" for a trick bear act. Pa Bear tries to transform himself , his wife Ma Bear and his son Junyer Bear into a vaudeville troupe, and suffers spectacularly as a result. The main problem is the oafish Junyer, who has no talent but plenty of bulk--a bad combination when one is trying to be a tightrope walker or trick cyclist. Worst of all, Pa Bear's efforts turn out to be all for naught, leading to closing gag that's a real killer (which may be why this cartoon seldom shows up on TV). And yes, that's famed satirist Stan Freberg as the voice of Junyer.
