The original Bozo was Vance "Pinto" Colvig, who was also the original Goofy. Bozo was originally heard in the late 1940s on a series of 78 RPM records produced by Capitol Records. Pinto Colvig was also seen as the first TV Bozo soon after commercial TV started in Los Angeles (1948). A few years after that Larry Harmon got the rights for Bozo to create a cartoon series (Harmon was the voice of Bozo). Pinto's son, Vance Colvig, (Jr.,) was then the Los Angeles TV Bozo, first on KTLA in the late 1950s.

The "Bozo" that I remember was Mr.Bill Britten..who played
the character on "The Bozo Show" on WPIX TV Ch.11 in
NYC during the late 1950's and into the mid 1960's.

I don't know..if "Mr.Green Jeans" was on any "Bozo The
Clown TV Show" on any local market in this country?

  But?

   I do know that "Mr.Green Jeans" was on "Captain Kangaroo"
and "Wake Up!".
