Aww, man. Pretty sad. Hadn't thought about him in years, but he was a
part of my childhood.

Bozo is Dead - Bob Bell, the actor who played Bozo the Clown for 25
years on WGN-TV, died Monday following an illness. Bell, who was 75,
played the clown from 1959 until his retirement in 1984. He brought
the character to national prominence when WGN-TV began broadcasting
via satellite in 1978. Bell was inducted into the Clown Hall of Fame
on August 3, 1996. He was the first clown to play the role on WGN.

I think so, Brain, but if we didn't have ears, we'd look like weasels.
