    Bozo The Clown turns 60.



    I remember watching Bozo making funny animals form from ballons. Oh..the good old days when i don't have to graduate and get a job. The only thing in my mind was "Bozo is on" and the world was turning without me in it.

    Bozo turns 60 this year. Bozo was created by Alan W. Livingston; a children strotytelling athour and were extremely popular in 1949. Capitol Records and Livingston setup a tie with manufactures and television station for use of the Bpzp character. Bozo was reportedly grossing over $150 million in merchandise worldwide.

    Bozo became even more famous after Larry Harmon purchased the licensing rights to the character in 1956, and franchised it to local television stations in 1959 as a daily half-hour show with a live Bozo the Clown — a different man in each city in front of a studio audience of children — along with five-minute Bozo cartoons. Unlike many other shows on television, Bozo was a franchise as opposed to being syndicated, meaning that local TV stations could put on their own local productions of the show complete with their own Bozo. Another show that used this model successfully was Romper Room.- via Wikipedia.


    I don't know if Bozo still exist or not.
