I loved Bozo The Clown. Who didn't? I mean, who born around the same time as I didn't? Then again, when I was about to become a father I purchased a DVD with some old Bozo episodes on it and when my kids became toddlers I popped it in and they too were enthralled by the black-and-white hijinks (and later color). Of course, soon enough they'd discover SpongeBob Squarepants and requests to play that DVD dwindled.
Still, I fondly recall kindergarten days that would end with me noshing on a PB&J while catching the clown's latest escapades, and this portrayer will be missed. There were a few actors who tackled the role over the years. Avruch played Bozo the Clown from 1959 to 1970.
