PROFESSOR BUBBLEMAKER'S ECLECTIC ENTERTAINMENTS
Professor Phineas T. Bubblemaker is an old west charlatan in the most fun sense of the word. He joyfully spreads his theories of education, medicine and science to all who will stop to listen to him. All of these philosophies can be boiled down to one word - laughter. first and foremost, he is a true showman, never passing up an opportunity to entertain and create a smile. His cure for everything is as most patent medicines of the 1880's bogus, however he proudly explains "The reason that it is so effective at curing such a wide variety of maladies is that it doesn't really cure anything at all - it just makes you feel better about everything!" His cure for fighting is the same bubble solution or as he says " After all doesn't laughter solve more problems than violence anyway?"
Never a man of few words, except when blowing bubbles, The professor lives up to the old medicine show practice of "never say in one word what you can say in ten.". Professor Bubblemaker is also well versed in the art of alliteration. He carries the show and appears as several characters, not wasting the money to pay for such trivial things as a troupe of performers. He is the grandiose flea circus ringmaster, the soft spoken storyteller, the boisterous pitchman and the bumbling wannabe magician.
Though he claims to have travelled the world, Professor Bubblemaker has never travelled beyond the boundaries of rapidly expanding midwest territories. He also claims to have degrees from several universities or institutions of higher learning, though we find this highly improbable as no self respecting college would bestow honors on such a man. We find it much more likely that this vagabond entertainer has learned what he has by trial and error and makes up the rest as he goes along.
Born in a Conestoga wagon travelling west across Nebraska, young Phineas knew from birth the hardships of the unsettled lands of the great plains. He soon learned that if people were laughing, they didn't mind the hard life quite so much. He became the class clown in his one room schoolhouse class of one.
No one is really sure what the "T". in his name stands for, at various times he claims it stands for trouble "...my dear sweet mother, may she rest in peace, knew the day that I was born that I was bound to be trouble..." or teacher " ... My dear sweet mother, who has moved back east, knew the day that I was born that I was bound to be a man of higher learning..." or even traveller ".. my dear sweet mother, who is the very pinnacle of society, knew the day that I was born that I was bound to sail the seven seas.
