Battling Bozos

(Page 4 of 4)

"Those were great days in TV," recalled Lee Carrau, the floor manager on the first Bozo TV show. "It was a live show, two cameras in a small studio, with animals and screaming kids. We never knew what would happen, monkeys jumping around everywhere. Every week was absolute pandemonium."

Carrau remembered Colvig well in a 1998 interview with The Wolf Files. "He used to go to the bar after the show in Bozo costume for laughs," he says. "He was a fun, fun guy."

Asked about Harmon, Carrau said, "Never heard of the gent, and I knew everyone on the show."
