Caravan is a Canadian children's television series which aired on CBC Television from 1960 to 1962.


This bilingual series featured a set that resembled a two-ring circus and recorded before an audience of approximately 700. Ringmaster Monsieur Loyal (Guy Mauffette) presented various circus acts such as animals, lion tamers and trapeze performers. Two clowns (Guy L'Ecuyer, Giani Scarpi) were also series regulars.


This hour-long series was broadcast on Fridays on CBC's English network at 4:30 p.m. (Eastern) for three seasons, each from early July to September. On Radio-Canada, the French network, episodes were seen on Saturdays.
