    Say it isn't so! Not Bozo!
    Loved Bozo the Clown as a kid. Actually got on the Bozo show once, when I was four. Freaked and ran offstage. Dude was scary in person.

    George: How about Bozo?
    Kid: Who's Bozo?
    George: Who's Bozo? Bozo the Clown, that's who Bozo is. When I was a kid, Bozo the Clown was the clown, bar none.
    Robin: George...
    George: With the orange hair, and the big clown shirt with the ruffles...
    Robin: George...
    George: And the TV show! He had cartoons!
    Robin: George! Forget Bozo, George. Bozo's out. He's finished. It's over for Bozo.

    Strange. ...

    I watched Bozo every day on WGN when I was a kid. :(

    I remember watching the show as a child and being told my aunt had been on it when she was little. I was so freakin' jealous. I tried to get my parents to drive to Chicago and take me, so I too could be a contestant.

    I was thinking of the hundreds of people the thread could be about. Then I realized it was literally about Bozo. RIP.

  7. Through furious research, I, along with another reporter, have come to realize that this isn't the same Bozo from the WGN show.

    I guess I don't feel like part of my childhood died now.

    Really. I no longer worry about how I must train in order to outrun Moddy around the Harbor. Any one who is that much of a sissy will no doubt quit a few feet in. I'll kick his ass even with my $4 Steve and Barry's sneakers causing several stress fractures.

    (Moddy, you may not know this, but Ragu and I have decided we're running with you at the Harbor next summer. Just an FYI)

    I'll give you guys a head start and see you back inside. Finish line is the bar at Phillips.

    At Obama HQ, one name is, with great regret, crossed off the veep list.

    When I clicked on this thread, I was dreading that it was Willard Scott, who also portrayed Bozo (as well as the original Ronald McDonald.)

    Still, RIP to a man who made a lot of children happy.
