WGN is bringing back Bozo, at least for a little while.
After being alerted to the existence of a rare 1971 recording of "Bozo's Circus," WGN decided to broadcast it as a special called "Bozo's Circus: The Lost Tape." WGN's Dean Richards will host the special, which is set to premiere at 7 p.m. Dec. 9 on WGN-TV Chicago and streamed live for viewers outside the Chicago area on wgntv.com.
The Bozo show aired for 40 years on WGN, from 1960 until 2001. Only a few episodes from the show's first two decades have been archived, the network said. No Bozo shows from 1969 to 1974 were thought to have survived exist until recently when one was discovered at the Media Archives & Peabody Awards Collection at the University of Georgia in Athens.
