Killer Willard the Boxing Kangaroo


Roger Smith said...

My friends, the Ronritas, formally known as Joachim & Betty Krause, with daughters Jackie and Heidi, were developing their boxing kangaroo in 1975. I'm trying to ID the performers here. Is this the Ronritas, someone?

Mike Naughton said...

Lucky Laribee, ringmaster, Irene Fossett as the lady volunteer and Christine Fossett Chabira as the trainer. Killer Willer plays himself.

DId Nissen (trampoline manufacturer) build the boxing ring for Fossetts or am I thinking of someone else?

Buckles said...

I only worked with Mr. Laribee one time but I can't for the life of me remember when or who the date was for.
In fact the entire engagement would have faded into oblivion had he not approached me explaining that it was customary that the Ringmaster be tipped for announcing the elephant ride.

So, did you pay him the same as the guy that delivered your water?

Well certainly not the #300 I had to pay Naughton and the rest of those guys.
