Newly discovered video shows ‘Benji’ the dog meeting Bozo at WGN

CHICAGO -- Starting this Friday, March 16th, the 1970s and '80s star "Benji" is receiving a reboot on Netflix with a new movie.

Benji is a rescue dog that some of us grew up watching. At one time, Benji was considered America's  favorite pooch.

Also, WGN has just discovered film footage of Bozo the Clown and the canine. The footage was shot at the WGN-TV Studios during a live broadcast of "Bozo's Circus," while Benji was on a publicity tour for the movie "For the Love of Benji" in 1977.
