The Emmy-Award winning Russell Scott wished all of Colorado a Happy Birfday on television and brought joy to many children throughout his career.

Scott, who sewed his own puppets for the show, went on to produce and host nearly 10,000 shows over four decades, moving from Colorado Springs to Denver’s KWGN-TV in 1966. From the moment he walked into the TV studio, he was Blinky, not Scott, handing out the Blinky’s Fun Club Safety Tips cards that became one of his trademarks.

Family members say that Scott died from complications of pneumonia. Rest well Blinky, you will be missed.
