I remember watching this show in my home in Racine, Wisconsin--in the
WGN viewing area--during the 1960s. I always liked Ray Rayner, who also
hosted the Dick Tracy cartoons from his "Crimestopper Cruiser." In
Bozo's Circus he played one of the supporting characters.
What distinguishes the show in my mind is the fact that it spawned a
rumor that swept my junior high about 1964. The rumor had it that the 9
year-old contestant chosen from the audience to play the
ball-in-the-bucket game (described in another review) had missed the
sixth bucket, hence the biggest prize. He snapped out an on-air
obscenity at Bozo! Whether it was true or not, most of the kids at
school thought the story was hilarious, and it was still being repeated
when I graduated from high school in 1969.
