The Fantastic Flying Fettucini Brothers Circus
From Monkey Island wiki
The Fantastic Flying Fettucini Brothers Circus is a circus on Mêlée Island owned by brothers Bill and Alfredo Fettucini. Guybrush walks into the circus where seeing the brothers having an argument over who will test their cannon. They decide to let Guybrush do it, once he first provides a helmet for himself (he uses a headcheese pot from the Scumm Bar kitchen). He is paid a handsome sum, which is required in order to be able to purchase almost anything in the game.
Their circus tent is a noticeable landmark on Mêlée Island, located in the middle of a forest clearing. They are mentioned again in Monkey Island 2 where Guybrush can win tickets to their latest show from the Wheel of Fortune game on Phatt Island.

- A famous joke would be one of the talking options that Guybrush can say to introduce himself. The joke was "I'm selling these fine leather jackets." which is a reference to the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade adventure game when Indy enters the Nazi castle in Austria.
- Creator Ron Gilbert later lamented the lack of importance in such a large area
