you'd think that would be a good thing, but when the creepiest clown dies two more take his place, and as the next rank compete to try to earn those places things can get pretty fierce

Bozo died doing what he loved, getting his testicles worked over like a speed bag in a Rocky training montage.

"The man who lit up the lives of countless Arkansas children in the 1970s and 80s"

could be taken very differently if you had a fear of psychotic, pyromaniac, clowns.

He may have gone to Larry Harmon's clown college, though, so that gives him a certain level of legitimacy.

I was on the Bozo the Clown show!  My parents paid for me & a few friends to be in the little seating section that you could see onstage.  Because I was a birthday kid, they picked me for the hula hoop competition.  I got to totally humiliate myself infront of a live TV audience!  I literally don't remember a second of it.  This all comes from family lore, repeated at countless Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner tables.

To be fair, it was a franchise. So for Arkansas, this guy was their Bozo.

Pinto Colvig  was the first Bozo, via the records.

Bob Bell was our Bozo, from Chicago/Detroit area. I got to go to see Bozo show when I was four. My brothers Cub Scout unit had a standing order every year.

My favorite Bozo memory is waking up on Saturday mornings hung-over to watch WGN's Bozo the Clown Show and see if the kids could win at the GRAND ... PRIZE ... GAME!

Obviously a different Bozo, but Bozo nonetheless.

Yeah, I was wondering about that.  I'd always thought Bozo was Larry Harmon.  It's understandable that multiple people filled those big shoes, but I wish the article had told us which one was first.

I was on the show when I was about 8. I totally farked up playing a game and lost a ping pong ball behind the cameras.

The history of Bozo is amazingly interesting.

My wife went to the show when she was around 9. She told me that she remembers how cheap the sets were, Ringmaster Ned looked like a drunk and Wizzo was a perv.

Wizzo was the only clown to ever give me the creeps.

Bozo the Clown was responsible for me being called Bozo every day of my childhood (or "Zodo", which was even worse--some alien cartoon character that was on then). they used to sing the theme song at me, which thankfully I can't remember. I HATE YOU BOZO.

Absolutely. No Fauxzo for me, thank you.

That's him on the right, with the real Superman looking at him with undisguised manliness-envy.

To this day men in makeup are a turn-off, and men in uniform are hot.

/ fun fact: the real Superman killed himself.
// which sort of makes sense, given that nobody else could.
/// answer to "whatif: uniform+makeup?" = I'd hose him off and then fark him.

Even as a kid, I thought he looked like a child molester.  The orange skullet, the flanel shirt, the creepy makeup.  Yikes.
