Blinky's Fun Club
The show also aired on KKTV in Colorado Springs from 1958 to 1966.
The star of Blinky's Fun Club was Blinky the Clown, played by Russell Scott. In the early 1980s additional characters began to appear regularly, including Otis and Zelda, played by husband and wife acting duo Michael Berg and C.J. Prince.
Over 10,000 episodes, taped at KWGN's studios, initially located at Lincoln & Speer in Denver, later in Greenwood Village, aired during the show's three decades on the air. However, the station has reportedly saved tapes of only ten shows. KCNC & KUSA, reportedly, were able to get a few of the episodes out of the trash, and have them in their libraries.
KWGN's general manager Bill Ross cancelled the show in 1998.
