Little Clowns of Happytown is an American animated television series produced by DiC and aired on ABC from September 26, 1987 to July 16, 1988, for a total of 18 episodes. The show is about the young clowns from Happytown, whose goal is to spread happiness and imbue positive mental attitudes around the world wherever they go. The only thing that stands in their way is Awful BeBad, the master of doom and gloom, and his two minions, Geek and Whiner.

The show was later released in VHS and DVD. The Mill Creek Entertainment NTSC DVD release TV Guide Spotlight: Totally '80s Toons, UK VHS and DVD releases has very few episodes.[1][2] Only the Joking Around with the Little Clowns shorts, several episodes dubbed in Arabic, and a intro of the show have surfaced and no other episodes in English has been uploaded on the Internet.

A VHSRip of a episode from the UK VHS release was recently found by a user RetroGameFan9000, aka Ethan M. Nelson on a Russian file sharing site TrackerOK.[3]

On June 7, 2016, a YouTube user named Meringue in Sugartown,USA uploaded 4 original English dub episodes of the show on YouTube but has since taken down due to the account termination.

The UK VHS tape is unavailable through Amazon, UK people are going to have to search through charity shops (you find the weirdest old videos in there, we got a lot of strange animation released here)

You know there's two other Amazon UK listings which ARE available and for quite cheap... but likely not the entire run of the series. Still, for preservation efforts if anyone wants to order them:

1. http://www.a...p/B0002IAQSG (4-episode Region 2 DVD, also available through Amazon's Love Film DVD rental service)

2. http://www.a...p/B000M0C0IS (4 episode VHS)

Anyone saved the videos because a user who uploaded the videos is terminated.

Mysterious Mr. Enter saved a copy of "I'm just like you" for his review, I wonder if he still has it.

I'd love to see the episodes. I actually have a soft spot for shows most people don't like.

Apparently there's a Korean bootleg DVD being sold. It's hard to tell what it includes but the quick translate suggests "Too Scared to Laugh" is one of the episodes on it. Maybe someone more familiar with Korean could describe the listing?

Could someone add that on April 16, 2017 (Easter Sunday), a YouTuber named The Mysterious Mr. Enter uploaded a video called "Animated Atrocities #135: Little Clowns of Happytown" and he reviewed the episode "I'm Just Like You" in it. So could someone add that info to the page & say "I'm Just Like You" is now partially found.

The TrackerOK page linked in references actually has three episodes of the Russian dub in it, which appear to be "I'm Just Like You", "Goodbye Grandma", and "Don't Tell Mom".
