Don Sandburg, the last surviving original cast member of WGN-TV's legendary "Bozo's Circus," died from complications of Alzheimer's Saturday night.

Sandburg came to Chicago from Cincinnati, Ohio with two other broadcasters: Bob Bell, the original Bozo on WGN, and radio legend Wally Phillips.

From the beginning of "Bozo's Circus" in 1961, Sandburg performed and wrote on the show, and became a producer until 1969. Among his longest-lasting achievements was creating what's remembered as the "Bozo Bucket Game" or the "Grand Prize Game."
