I could not wait to get home from school every day to watch the Early Show. Flippo was my favorite and if I was "grounded", my punishment was not being able to watch Flippo.
He always made us laugh....he was an original, talented and wonderful entertainer! He will be missed!

Bob will be missed by our entire family (especially by my dad and mom Tom & Marge Enright)! He was one of a kind and gave us some great memories. God Bless! Sincere sympathy to Bob's kids and grandkids.

I grew up in Columbus in the 50's and 60's. My late father, Dick Anderson, and I loved watching Flippo just before supper. My dad was always impressed with Flippo's wit, his laugh, and that perfect comic timing. His genuine love of people and his humility never failed to guide his entertainment. He was able to entertain adults and children at the same time. We especially loved the music he brought us at the beginning of The Early Show (one piece he played often was "Lisbon Antigua," my dad's favorite. I met him once at Columbus Gymnastics Academy when there with my small son, Chris. I heard that unmistakable voice before I saw him and it brought back so many memories. He said, "Gee, what did I say? How did you know it was me?" I said, "How could anyone not know that voice? We appreciate you so much!" We all loved him and feel like a part of his family. Our heartfelt condolences to his children at this time.

I never 'outgrew' Flippo!! I loved his show from the first time I saw it. In later years, my son also loved Flippo. We even got to meet and talk to him one year at the Ohio State Fair. He gave my son a t-shirt with Flippo's picture on it. My son was about 6-7. I still have the shirt. There was never or ever will be another clown like Flippo! He was the best!! I send my love and prayers to his family and friends. God bless.

I enjoyed him very much when I was a child and even when I got older. He brought many smiles to the young and old.

Though I knew him as "Flppo" I best knew him as "Bouncin' Bob Marvin" when he played and sang with Chuck Selby's Orchestra at the old Seneca Hotel. Bob's own band played at the Club Gloria for a couple of "girl dancers" Ginger & Margie during the 1950's. An all around entertainer. He did it all.

Your family is in my prayers.

Dear Columbus Ohio
It is sad to think that there are so many famlies/children out there that don't have a flippo to come home to at night. Flippo was an inspriations to us all. My children and my husband adored Flippo. Flippo after retiring from the T.V. would sometimes be seen at the UA MCL cafeteria and my husband would see Flippo often and we have many autographs of his.
God Bless you all for being part of his life, we are.

Sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. He will always be "Uncle Bob" to me. It so nice of him to come to my dad's funeral last August. Maybe he and Howard "Rookie" are together again, drinking and laughing.
Take care.

I worked with Flippo at WBNS-TV. Drove him on occasional gigs as Merchandising Director of the Station. One day we parked my big old green DeSoto in a downtown Columbus garage, and the attendent roared down the ramp, sped out onto Capital Street and sideswiped a car. The garage tried to pin the accident on "bad brakes". Their worst "break" was that "Flippo" was my witness in Court. I looked at the Judge grin as Bob took the stand and knew we'd won the case before it was even heard. Funny, talented, warm, sensitive Bob Marvin, you will be missed greatly by us all.Thanks for the ride.
