Winable or not winable?

It was tossing ping pong balls in small metal buckets! I mean, sure. The first couple of buckets were literally at your feet (although some kids still missed, don't ask me how) but once you got to the 3rd one, the laws of physics pretty much guaranteed that your ball was gonna bounce outta the bucket. Bozo you diabolical.....

          So did I. That was before watching IT though, which will forever make clowns scary for me.... Bozo's hair always cracked me up. The guy could catch rain water. It was like a big bowl.

                the bozo super sunday show,

                newer bozo reminded me in ways of bugs bunny

                they should put it on dvd, along with the short lived cartoons

                I have seen the older episodes on dvd, but it would be good to have a collectors edition with a mix of the seasons when it was out






                Can u picture that - Th

                      Cookie, Petunia, and someone else.

                      It was from Chicago, which I didn't like. I hate that place, just as bad as St. Louis is.

                        Don't forget Wizzy, "dodeedodeedodee" with his magic necklace.

                        I remember the polarid pic that is taken with Bozo after you make the second bucket. And was it a crisp $100 dollar bill he put in the last bucket? I saw many a kids win it all. They would get the money and a Schwinn bicycle.

                        ...I also remember Archway Cookies being a prize...

                          I used to watch Bozo all the time. It wasn't often you saw a kid win that game though.

                          Has anyone else heard the urban legend about the kid who lost one of the games and said something like "Cram it clown" to Bozo?

                              I heard that urban legend.

                              Man..that was like THE only reason I watched the bozo show was for the grand prize game. Those birthday cakes they always won looked really good(granted i'm sure it was a cardboard display cake obviously and that they got a gift card for the actual bakery) and man they gave away tons of archway cookies lol

                              didn't they have a thing where either another audience member or a kid at home who sent in a postcard that was picked would get to get all the prizes that the kid playing one? I think it was someone that sent in a postcard because I think I remember considering it a few times but figured the odds weren't that great.

                              I remember cookie most and the dog..I can't remember the dogs name for some reason.

                              I also remember the game at Chuck E Cheese in florida I think.

                                  I loved to watch Bozo on WGN. Did any one see the finale, where they moved the buckets back so the kids won everything? I thought it would be awsome to win all those prizes. I also have to admit it was funny to me the sound effects they would use when Bozo put the "Crisp, new $100 bill" in the last bucket.

                                    Yeah eh. I remember that.
                                    You probably just had to throw the ball a certain way like in them carnie games, eh?
                                    Those kids hardly ever one.
                                    It was awesome when a kid would miss the first bucket. HAHA! ...eh.

                                      They always had the best prizes...I wonder why I was never scared of Bozo and the gang?

                                        The dogs name on the Bozo Show was Cuddley Duddley. I watched this show every morning before school in Elementary School. The Muppet Show would be on at 6:30 and Bozo would come on at 7 am. Wizzo's wife was a teacher at my school as well. Good memories.
