What a great Christmas present! To watch and enjoy simpler times, when no storylines in clown routines were needed and nothing had to be current. Funny was funny! Runaway bathtubs & hospital beds, guns that squirt water, bend over elephants, knock off heads, skelton's chasing clowns,fly-away dummies, clown cars, soap gags and some great, great clowns...

Thanks Pat for a great year of remembering...

-Happy Christmas

Bravo...Bravo...Bravo... Superb clowns who knew how to keep it simple. I wonder if they really knew how great they were. I remember seeing most of these guys as a young kid when I visited RBB&B at the Baltimore Civic Center in the late 60's and early 70's. I count myself lucky to have seen them in person and want to thank you for being able to garner such wonderful footage. I absolutely love this site.
