Goodbye Bozo...

Bozo the Clown died :( I remember watching the Bozo show on WGN. I can't remember if I ever actually sent in a postcard to try and be the at home winner or not, but man I loved that grand prize game.

I found this online...I had no idea there was an at home version. Basically a boy and girl were selected from the studio audience to toss a ping-pong ball into a series of successively-numbered buckets until they missed. If they made the winning toss into the sixth bucket, they (and an "at-home player") received a cash prize and a bike. I'm pretty sure you got smaller prizes in the buckets leading up, but I could be wrong.

I can't remember much else besides Cooky. Do y'all remember Cooky?
I feel like maybe he got hit by pies alot? I'm going to have to search YouTube for Bozo later and refresh my memory....

My favorite was always Wizzo. Apparently he's still alive and selling card tricks to kids.

I feel so old knowing that Bozo has passed away.
