Like Romper Room, Bozo's Circus / The Bozo Show is a franchised show, meaning individual stations could do their own version of the show.
- Boz-Goz: Where Bozo goes to different places in Chicago.
- What is It?: A mysterious antique thing. Some kids would win a prize for guessing the answer correctly at the end of the show. (*)
- Bozo's Grand Prize Game: A game show segment where a contestant has to throw a ping-pong ball to a bucket to win a prize. If the contestant makes it to bucket 6, they won the titular grand prize.

- Bozo Online: Online question that Bozo would answer.
- Various classic (even by the 1960s) animated shorts, as well as Larry Harmon's animated Bozo series. As well as episodes of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends.
The (*) indicates segments that were forced onto the show after the E/I laws were passed.
The Bozo Show contains examples of:

- Consolation Prize: If you missed buckets 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 (the grand prize), you would keep your prize in The Grand Prize Game. If you miss bucket 1 though, you keep on going until the ping-pong ball goes to bucket 1.
