Larry Harmon, the creator licensor of popular children's icon Bozo the Clown, died today at 83 years old. Chicago's rendition of "The Bozo Show" remains as one of the most popular children's programs in the history of television.

While Chicago's version of the Bozo Show was helmed by Bob Bell and Joey D'Auria, the local show stood as the longest running of all of the Bozo shows. It went off the air in 2001.
