The star of Blinky's Fun Club was Blinky the Clown, played by Russell Scott. In the early 1980s additional characters began to appear regularly, including Otis and Zelda, played by husband and wife acting duo Michael Berg and C.J. Prince. Children appeared on each show to celebrate their birthdays and were sung "Happy Birthday to You," (sung as Birf-Day) by Blinky.

Over 10,000 episodes, taped at KWGN's studios, initially located at Lincoln & Speer in Denver, later in Greenwood Village, aired during the show's three decades on the air. The station reportedly saved tapes of only 10 shows. KCNC & KUSA reportedly were able to get a few of the episodes out of the trash, and put them in their libraries.
