2020 Sep 2126m 14s
*BUMMER EPISODE WARNING* This episode does not have a happy ending, but there are some interesting nit-bits scattered across! Topsy was an Asian elephant who, much like many other episodes, succumbed to the horrors of circuses in the late 1800s and early 1900s! What makes this story interesting is the connection that people drew between Topsy and the War of the Currents! Sorry to bum you out!
