Bozo The Clown Dies Today - Read his Biography

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Larry Harmon, who popularized Bozo the Clown through the new medium of television 50 years ago, died today of heart failure in his Los Angeles home. He was 83.

Harmon was not the original Bozo, who was created by Alan W. Livingston in 1946.

"You might say, in a way, I was cloning BTC (Bozo the Clown) before anybody else out there got around to cloning DNA," Harmon told the AP in a 1996 interview.

He embellished Bozo's distinctive look : the orange-tufted hair, the bulbous nose, the outlandish red, white and blue costume.

"I felt if I could plant my size 83AAA shoes on this planet, (people) would never be able to forget those footprints," he said.

Harmon, one of several actors hired by Livingston and Capitol Records to portray Bozo at promotional appearances, formed a business partnership and bought the licensing rights (excluding the record-readers) to the character when Livingston briefly left Capitol in 1956.

In 1959, Jayark Films Corporation distributed a series of Harmon-produced limited-animation cartoons (with Harmon as the voice of Bozo) to television stations, along with the rights for each to hire its own live Bozo host.

In 1965, Harmon became the sole owner of the licensing rights after buying out his business partners.

In 1971, Larry Harmon Pictures Corporation took over Capitol Records' "Bozo the Clown" copyright.

In 2001, the last Bozo television series ended a 40-year-run on Superstation WGN-Channel 9 Chicago, Illinois.

Nothing for nothing but this clown always creeped me out and probably set the stage for my total repulsion of clowns throughout my life. Pennywise from Stephen King's "It" finished me off!
