    RIP Bozo

    Larry Harmon, who turned the character Bozo the Clown into a show business staple that delighted children for more than a half-century, died Thursday of congestive heart failure. He was 83.

    Wow, I'm surprised I didn't hear this yet, unless it just happened. Sad to hear.

    Yes.

    Heck, even in high school, I would wait to jump in the car and drive to school right after the grand prize game was over.

    Stephen Kings IT really ruined the whole "clown" thing for me. Pennywise has forever changed my once fondness of clowns....sad...

    Bozo was great!!

    Re: RIP Bozo

    That's too bad, although for some reason I had thought he was already dead.

    One of my neighbors at ISU (The Dude) grew up in Chicago and one night he showed us a tape of himself playing The Grand Prize Game as a kid. He got to bucket 4, which I believe got him the Radio Flyer wagon? Of course he got his picture taken with Bozo on the brand new Polaroid Spectrasystem Camera after bucket 1 but he didn't still have the picture.
