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.

Watching Flippo on TV after school with my MOM is one of my favorite childhood memories. My love and appreciation for old movies is thanks to you. We were all so lucky to have you in our lives when we were growing up. Thank you Flippo. You are missed. My deepest sympathy to your family.

Farewell, Flip. Thanks for many, many laughs in my childhood days.

As you used to say when introducing a cartoon, "One, two, three, whoop, BOING!"

I like so many others grew up with Flippo. He was the "show" although the segments of the Little Rascals served as a pacifier while he was not on the air. I once saw him act on a live episode of "Traffic Court" but he couldn't fool me..I knew by the voice that that person didn't really have a speeding ticket. It was none other than the "King of the Clowns." As I grew older I picked up on some of his double meanings and learned to appreciate his humor even more. I sent him an email recently,asking him whatever happened to the sign "I Goofed" that he so prominately displayed on his set. I then just recently heard of his passing. I will truly miss him but, thanks Flippo, for the memories.

I grew up beleiving that "Flippo" was the only clown in the whole world. I am 58 now and will always remember when he came to our elementary school in Columbus, West Mound St, elementary. There will always be a warm spot in my heart for "The King of Clowns". God bless.

I was born and raised in Columbus. Graduated from West. Spent many many years listening to Flippo. To this day, my mother will reference a joke I tell her as a 'Flippo Joke' You will be missed. My prayers from Iraq.
June 26, 2006
My prayers go out to your entire family, friends and the million of viewers who enjoyed his programs. Recently I read a scripture that says that God is near to those that are broken at heart and those who are crushed in spirit he saves (Psalms 34:18). I was so comforted by the scripture and I hope you are too. My prayer is that you can find comfort in this time of great grief.
