Well, we are finally back from Buzios. My daughter and I were actually getting a little bored at the end. Amazing how even paradise can become a bit monotonous if you spend enough time there.
A big welcome to Bossa Breezes who has finally made it to São Paulo! I’m excited to meet up and also read his Brazilian escapades, though hoping it won’t be too graphic in nature. HA!
Speaking of Buzios, one morning while at the gym (yes, one of my many NY’s resolutions, wish me luck) I caught my favorite television show playing on the tv. Bozo’s Circus! Actually, I don’t know if it was called Bozo’s Circus, but it was definitely Bozo the Clown!
Bozo’s Circus was produced by WGN, the Chicago television station. My Bozo was the beloved Bob Bell and Fraizer Thomas was the ring leader. Roy Brown was Cooky the Cook. We actually went on the set when I was about seven years old, , My parents had sent away for the tickets to go to the show when I was born, but it was such a popular show, we didn’t actually get the tickets to attend until I was seven-years-old. And let me tell you, I was very disappointed I wasn’t selected to play their signature game on the show – Bozo buckets, a game where a kid tosses a bean bag into a row of buckets trying to get in all to win a prize. I had been practicing. I knew that Bozo had been popular in the U.S., especially when WGN became a national station. But in Brazil?
Yep, apparently, Bozo was popular in Brazil and produced for more than 10 years! It was also big in Mexico. Now it looks as though Brazil brought him back and are even running the cartoons!
Now my daughter can watch (I think, haven’t checked to see if it’s made it to São Paulo television). And while the woman in the photo ain’t no Frazier Thomas, I’m excited to see what Bozo has in store for my little one.
If you grew up on Brazil, did you watch Bozo?
