Pinto Colvig as the original Bozo the Clown. What do Bozo the Clown, Walt Disney’s Goofy and Popeye’s nemesis Bluto have in common? The answer is Pinto Colvig. Who? you ask. Pinto Colvig is possibly the most popular celebrity whose name you’ve never heard. He was the original Maxwell automobile on Jack Benny’s show, the hiccupping horse for Dennis Day, and a variety of voices for Amos& Andy. His live radio experience and contacts introduced him to the recording industry. He wrote and produced a popular series of storytelling record-album and illustrative read-along book sets, beginning with the September 1946 release of Bozo at the Circus. His record-reader concept, which enabled children to read and follow a story in pictures while listening to it, was the first of its kind.
Unlike many other shows on television, "Bozo the Clown" was mostly a franchise as opposed to being syndicated, meaning that local TV stations could put on their own local productions of the show complete with their own Bozo. Another show that had previously used this model successfully was fellow children's program Romper Room. After that, José Manuel Vargas Martínez, under sponsorship by Antonio Espino (famous comedy actor of the late 1940s and 1950s, known by his nickname, Clavillazo), portrayed the character. He was the most famous Bozo in Latin America and created his own version of Bozo's Circus, which traveled all along Latin America for decades. The following is a partial list of Bozo television portrayers since the original (Pinto Colvig): Frank Avruch (1959–1970).
Vance DeBar Colvig (September 11, 1892 – October 3, 1967), professionally Pinto Colvig, was an American vaudeville actor, voice actor, newspaper cartoonist, and circus performer, whose schtick was playing the clarinet off-key while mugging. Colvig was the original Bozo the Clown, and the original voice of the Disney characters Pluto and Goofy. In 1993, he was posthumously made a Disney Legend for his contributions to Walt Disney Films, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Fun and Fancy Free.
