I remember after America Goes Bananaz wrapped up I seen him one summer,I was a young man no tee shirt at The Ohio State Fair he looked at me didn't miss a beat and said "Wow you are still black and all over." and I said yea and you will a two toned white clown, he laughed so hard. The funniest human I've ever met.

Flippo, you practically raised my little sister and me! We were Latch-Key Kids and you were our afternoon entertainment. You delighted us 'til one of the parents came home. I have fond memories of you, Flippo. Thanks for being there for me! God bless you!

RIP Flippo. You brought much joy to my life. In the third grade, I was on your show, donating monies collected from my fellow Groveport Elementary 3rd graders for the Heart Fund. You asked me in the interview how I came to have money to donate; I explained that my mother paid me a nickel to practice the piano. Not missing a beat, you replied that your uncle used to pay you a quarter NOT to play the saxaphone! :) And I still remember that witty reparte nearly 47 years later. Thank you for a life well lived.

I loved the days without worry and being a kid - my brother James (Jason) Abdon, would fight over what to watch - it seemed to alternate between Flippo and the Mouseketeers - when he was into flippo - I wasn't as much and vice versa - but, we both loved him and the show was just so unique - he was great with kids, showed real compassion - I am now 53 yrs old, my older brother is 56 yrs. old. Will always be in our memories. God Bless!!

FLIPPO was an icon to those of us who grew up during his reign. Our own children would be blessed if we still had him in our lives today!
Time to bring out the re-runs.

My sincere condolences to Mr. Fishman and his family.

He (and his alter ego Flippo) brought me a lot of laughs and joy as a kid.

He was a huge part of my childhood, along with Lucy's Toyshop and Capt. Kangaroo. The three of them seem to be a hallmark of growing up in Central Ohio.
