Stumpy Dreifuss
   Played by Toby Huss


Felix (Stumpy) Dreifuss (23 episodes, 2003-2005) - Began his career as a talker for the famed fat-lady twins, Gillian and Shannon Bartholomew in 1910. He then joined the infamous Red Rutherford Traveling Crazy Horse Revue, where he met his future wife and business partner, Rita Sue Menninger.

Upon Rutherford's death, the young couple began traveling with various carnival companies as The Gay Paree Show, eventually joined by their two daughters, Libby and Dora Mae. For a number of years, the Dreifuss Family prospered, but their fortunes steadily declined in the 1930s as troubled times spawned a slew of competing "cootch family" acts, including the Beauvilles, the Vance Family and the notorious Franklin Girls.
