Theodore (テオドール Teodōru, lit. Theodore) is a character in Harvest Moon: Animal Parade.
Once a season at 3:00 pm, Theodore appears with his animal friends. He sets up his circus tent at the church plaza, and stays there until 8:00 at night.
The Circus Appears
The first time Theodore comes to visit is on Spring 22 of your first season in the game. When you talk to him you'll learn that some of his animal family has wandered off! While Theodore was off chasing a cute little cat that he saw, three of his circus members wandered away.
Theodore asks that you go and find them for him. He tells you that if you use the Animal Whistle in the areas he tells you to, the lost circus employee should reappear.
The wandering animals are probably hungry by now, so the circus master also gives you 3 cooking recipes; Grilled Herb Fish, Bread, and Vegetable Pizza. These will come in handy later.
The exotic animals will be attracted by the sound of your Animal Whistle. It is a good idea to have the special cooked recipe in your Rucksack and ready to give when you find the animal, else you'll waste time running back to your house to cook up the dish and then hurry back to the spot you found the beast.
Even after you find Theodore's missing companions, their home is the circus. You can not house any of the exotic creatures on your own farm, and Theodore will not sell you his circus friends.
