Bozo Didn't Tap
You have to wonder how entertainment-starved they were in the '40s that "push-back games" were considered "exciting," but you have to appreciate any toy that trains your children to take out their rage on clowns. When a van full of depraved clowns tries to kidnap little Jimmy you'll want him to be prepared.
I confess that I am mystified as to how Puncho could be an "excellent wrestling partner." Surely you would want a wrestling partner to have arms and legs, to be able to fight back, and also to not explode because you put too much weight on him. But what do I know? I was a mathlete. Maybe clown wrestling is some specialized variant of the sport that I'm not aware of.
