Pennywise from It is currently creeping everybody out – and really annoying the clown profession while he’s at it. So, in defence of the harlequin community, we thought we’d get a list together of non-creepy clowns in TV and the movies.


1: Krusty the Clown

Non-creepy clowns

We don’t think anybody could be creeped out by Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski, who wisely took the stage name Krusty the Clown. Throughout The Simpsons‘ many years we’ve been privy to life behind the makeup, and he’s as human as any of us. Well, any of us who are cartoon characters and have naturally yellow skin.

He was also responsible for one of our favourite ever gags that makes us Misty-eyed with tears of laughter everytime, involving the racehorse that he and Bette Midler own together…

2: Uh… Nope, we’ve got nothin’. Sorry.
