I don't remember the Banana Man, but most clowns have creeped me out.

The only exception I can think of was Bozo on WGN in Chicago.

I'd have been a good candidate for one of the characters in that Stephen King movie, whatever it was.

No, I believe Capt. Kangaroo was Clarabell the clown from Howdy Doody. Before my time, but I like this stuff. Capt Kangaroo is not before my time.

-this should have been a reply to Pirate, sorry being lazy.

The Pennywise from the book was even scarier. I stopped reading King after that book.

Pennywise for TV was played by none other than RHPS's Tim Curry.

ps - which I see Cel "revealed" above.

I always found clowns creepy except for Bozo too, Stumpy. That really brings me back to the days of watching WGN out of Chicago. smile

Give this song a chance, it's all about how creepy clowns are. Have listened to it for years and years. The video is unrelated, something someone put together
