The Saturday Comics: Bozo the Clown

Allow me to introduce Bozo.

Bozo was a little before my time. I still had tons of Bozo coloring books and pictures though. My grandpa worked for a company that did business with Keds, the sneaker company. He got a ton of freebies. All throughout my youth I wore Pro-Keds, those blue canvas sneakers with the rubber Keds tag on the back. For some reason I always peeled it off.

One of the things we also grew up with were giant Bozo coloring pads. These were big pads, maybe three feet tall (but I was a lot smaller so who knows how big they really were) and each sheet was a black and white picture of Bozo to color in. Every page was the same picture but I didn’t care. I’d lay on the floor and color the day away. It was great being a kid.

Anyway, Bozo gives me a touch of nostalgia. Here is Bozo’s comic book. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.
