Big Otto's circus comes to a standstill when the old showman sees a farmhand creeping under the canvas to see the show. He attempts to oust the farmer and a fight ensues. As an outcome Big Otto is held in defray of bonds, and his circus is attached. Under cover of darkness Big Otto steals out, releases his pal, Toddles, the trained elephant, and make his escape. The pair is overtaken, but at a word from Otto, the elephant charges the "bloodhounds of the law," and thereafter their road is clear. After many trials and hardships the big beast climbs into a freight train and drags his master in after him. Later they arrive in a town where a friendly circus is playing and the two old pals are given deserved employment.
