Cookie the clown

Cookie the clown died yesturday. My favorite clown of the long running 'Bozo Show' recorded in Chicago.

"I am the luckiest guy in the world to have worked at a job I loved, and I'm going to miss it dearly," Brown said upon his retirement in 1994.

I miss Cooky too. His antics, his anxiety, his Ed McMahon-esque ability to bring out the best in Bozo.

I wonder...is Wizzo still alive? I can still hear him chanting his high-pitched, magic runes..."dootie dootie dootie do!"

Cooky is dead. Long live Cooky.

Wizzo lives. This is a link to another magician's personal site, but pretty nifty nonetheless. I didn't know Wizzo really was a magician! I thought he only played one on TV.

Detroit's Bozo never got a sidekick! No fair.
