CLASSIC CHICAGO KIDS TV FRIENDS
If any of my blog readers grew up in the Chicago area during the 1960s and 1970s, as I did, then these characters are very familiar! WGN-TV in Chicago produced some of the all-time great local kids TV shows throughout the 60s and 70s. WGN-TV Channel 9's BOZO's CIRCUS used to run the 1960s Larry Harmon BOZO cartoons which featured the great BOZO character design shown here. I'm told that legendary character designer, Ed Benedict (The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound) designed this terrific BOZO. Also shown here is the puppet GARFIELD GOOSE from GARFIELD GOOSE AND FRIENDS. Hope you enjoy seeing these!
