Black SplatBozo the Clown (1950s-1960s)

"Cram it, Clown!"

Bozo the Clown - Popular Children's TV Show Host

Description: According to urban legends, on a live TV broadcast of the BOZO THE CLOWN show produced on the WCVB-TV in Boston, Massachusetts, a local Bozo the Clown host was verbally put-down by an unhappy child who didn't win the prizes he wanted.

Apparently, the boy lost his chance at winning big cache of prizes when he failed to toss all three ping pong balls into a barrel (he got two) during the segment of the program called "Bozo’s Treasure Chest."

After the show’s Ringmaster said, "You’re never a loser on the Bozo show, you're just an almost winner," he presented the boy with a consolation prize (a towel). The boy looked at the towel, then the Ringmaster and finally Bozo and matter-of-factly registered his disappointment, by saying, "Cram it, Clown!" Bozo quickly replied, "That's a Bozo no-no."
