Why Bozo Finally went off after 40 years
14 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Bozo show (after its various names and incarnations) finally went off the air after 40 years. That had nothing to do with the fact that it took years to get tickets for the show, at least during the first 15 or 20 years the show was on.

These are the reasons the show finally ended:

1. The original cast had all retired and left. Nobody else could take their places.

2. Kids' TV programming was no longer confined to certain times and days; it had become possible to watch kid's programming 24x7. There was not so much special about a lunchtime TV show for kids anymore.

3. Pressures of later times were pushing for the show to have educational content, which was totally at odds with the brilliant ad-libbed sketch comedy of the original show.

4. Life and times had changed, and sadly not for the better.

The original Bozo's Circus was by far the best, and every time the cast changed or the show got moved to a different time or day, it slipped a bit. It was surely the same program for all 40 of its years but it changed a LOT in that much time and really, the magic that made it special had evaporated.

Any show that survives 40 years is something extraordinary, and Chicago's Bozo Circus (or in its other names) certainly was that. It will always be one of the favorite childhood memories of literally millions of kids who grew up watching it.
