Telecast on Aug. 26 to be Bozo's bye-bye

Four decades after his bright red nose popped onto the television scene, Bozo the Clown is headed for his last laughs.

WGN-TV general manager John Vitanovec announced Friday that the final telecast from Chicago of "The Bozo Super Sunday Show" would be Aug. 26.

The show began in 1961 as "Bozo's Circus," one of more than 180 locally produced Bozo shows around the country under license from the character's owner, Larry Harmon Pictures Corp.

Today, it is the only locally produced Bozo show left in the United States.
