After 1980 the show changed it's name and went to taped shows rather than live performances. In 1984 Bob bell retired and they got a new Bozo Joey D'Auria. Then in the mid 80's they got Andy mitran to replace the 3 piece orchestra that had replaced bob trendler and the big top band. In 1991 Roy Brown who played cooky had to retire from the clown portions due to health reasons but would continue on as cudlry dudley the talking dog. In his place they used sandy the sandy the sad faced tramp clown(Don Sandburg) and andrian zmed rookie clown in training who each had a week on the show until they got the permanent replacement Spiffard Q Farqwarr(Michael Immell)who played the role until the show moved to sundays and was renamed.
