From the old Frank Sinatra TV show, the “King of Diving Board Comedy” Larry Griswold; seriously, they just don’t do comedy like this anymore. I mean, literally, they just don’t. Awesome.

Bimbo The Birthday Clown

October 14th, 2008 by frankie23

Ah, childhood and the scars it leaves upon us. Back in the day when we still had local children’s programming, there was a British former clown who went by the name of Uncle Bobby, and his show was one of the most low-budget affairs you can imagine. This clip I present to you shows Bimbo The Birthday Clown, a giant cardboard monstrosity who would present birthday wishes to the boys and girls. One must remember, however, that what appears to us now to be laughable and quaint, to a young child was terrifying. The flapping ears, the rolling eyes of the giant with his jabbering mouth; the high-pitched cries of the yarn puppets, creatures I can still never look at without a modicum of discomfort. Truly nightmarish. Please, enjoy my memories laid bare for you, whilst I leave you with a transcript of the goliath’s song, which rings through my head to this day:

Bimbo Bimbo

I’m the birthday

clown they call

Bimbo Bimbo

On the Uncle Bobby Show

Bimbo Bimbo

I would like to say

you and you a very

happy birthday

“Happy birthday boys and girls”

Happy Birthday, indeed.
