Jim does a good job.

Acme Flea Circus, Kangaroo Katie, and Paul Szauter are some others.

I just bought one from Chuck Caputo. It has five elements in a small chest:

Mini Car (forward and reverse)
Flag Pole (American Flag rises to top of pole)
High Dive (rope climb moves, springboard moves, and splash at the end)
Target Shoot (Bang! and target falls over)
Trapeze (two swings w/ flea "jumping" from one to the other)

Overall, I am very happy with it. I have to work on the timing on the trapeze stunt as well as my touch w/ the car.

Several years ago, we were working with a prodigy (not of the Freak nature) who put together a cigar box circus. His show lasted about five minutes and was very entertaining. His only mechanical elements were a digital recorder and a flash device. The rest was very clever scripting and a lot of good acting. We lost track of the prodigy as he got older. I'm sure that he still has the cigar box, though.
