 The 1870s Colvig house at the corner of Fir and South Oregon streets in Jacksonville is also known as the “Bozo the Clown House.” Vance “Pinto” Colvig, one of the Colvig children, was the original creator of Bozo the Clown. Pinto later worked as an animator for Walt Disney and supplied many Disney cartoon voices, including those of ‘Goofy,’ ‘Pluto’ and two of the seven dwarfs. He also wrote the song, “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.”
