WHO'S YOUR BOZO? Vintage Bozo the Clown TV Show Collectibles

Bozo the Clown died. 

That is, Larry Harmon, an early Bozo and owner of the Bozo franchise biz recently passed away.

Although not the original Bozo, Harmon portrayed the popular clown in countless appearances and, as an entrepreneur, he licensed the character to others, particularly dozens of television stations around the country. The stations in turn hired actors to be their local Bozos.

I never realized there were a zillion different Bozos. The Bozo of my youth is not necessarily your Bozo.

  • I remember Bozo as often saying, "That's a Bozo No-No."

  • From Wikipedia: Bozo the Clown is a clown character whose widespread franchising in early television made him the best-known clown character in the United States. (the wiki article gives a lot of detail on the different Bozos, worldwide).

  • Bozo the Clown was very heavily promoted and merchandised. You can find tons of items to collect. Try google, and ebay.
