Big Top Talent (Series) (1980-1983)

Big Top Talent was an often unintentionally hilarious, low-budget children's talent show. "Big Top Talent" featured Oopsy T. Clown, perhaps the creepiest children's show host in history, and Billy Barty as the little mailman. Local children would sing, dance, juggle, etc, to impress Bonkers and their TV audience ... and everybody always won a balloon.

I am the president of Sumfun Productions Inc. which owns the rights to Oopsy the Clown and all related product. My father was Oopsy the Clown, the host of Big Top Talent, produced at CKCO tv in Kitchener from 1979 to 1995 (16 years, over 400 shows). Unfortunately, since the masters for BTT were destroyed several years ago we are unable to provide talent segments. For more information join Oopsy's blog at, or go to

At some point this show moved from CHCH to CKCO in Kitchener. Not sure if this was in 1983 or before that.
