In 1971, WDCA-TV 20 got the rights to produce a new
"Bozo's Circus" for the Washington DC market. So, 
 "Captain 20" performer Tony Alexi reluctantly
-----------added the new role to his responsibilities.---------

Though Captain 20's popularity was high, Bozo's Circus
was not clicking with youngsters, and in June of 1972,
Tony was replaced by a new hire; Dick Dyszel.
