<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Larry Harmon, who turned the character Bozo the Clown into a show business staple that delighted children for more than a half-century, died Thursday of congestive heart failure. He was 83.<br><br>
Although not the original Bozo, Larry Harmon portrayed the popular frizzy-haired clown in countless appearances.<br><br>
His publicist, Jerry Digney, told The Associated Press he died at his home.</td>

I remember in elementary school a classmate was on the show and we all got to watch it in the library. Funny how some things stick in your mind like that.

I didn't know he was still alive. I used to watch him all the time and also had this Bozo game, with these red cups, I can't remember what it was called or how you played.<br><br>
Aww. Bozo. Another piece of my childhood gone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I live in the Chicago area where Bozo was filmed and during my freshman year in college we finally got tickets to the show (the waiting list was YEARS long!) Heck yeah I went and we got there early enough that we sat in the front row right where Bozo would stand for most of the show. It was awesome - my baby sister was about 6 at the time and she got to play musical chairs with a few other kids. I was sooo sad when Bozo went off the air - that is a show that I would love to be able to buy on DVD to show my kids! I was scared to death of clowns as a child but for some reasom Bozo, Cookie, and Wizzo never bothered me.

That game was also called Bozo Buckets in some areas.
