Little Clowns of Happytown (Found ABC animated series; 1987-1988)
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.
