Here S What Loonette Clown From Big Comfy Couch Is Up Now
If you grew up in the '90s, odds are you watched ' The Big Comfy Couch .' The preschool show had it all: talking dust bunnies, a clock stretch routine, and one silent doll who you just knew was up to no good.
Alyson Court originated the role of Loonette the Clown on the beloved (and bizarre) show. Loonette would solve problems and find treasures with the help of her doll Molly, Granny Garbanzo, a cat named Snicklefritz and delivery man Major Bedhead.

Alyson Court as Loonette the Clown
While still well-known for Loonette, Court's resume is quite lengthy. She was the voice of Lydia Deetz on the animated TV show 'Beetlejuice' from '89 to '91. A year later, she lent her voice to the 'X-Men' series as Jubilee/Jubilation Lee.
She played Priscilla Presley in the mockumentary 'Elvis Meets Nixon,' and voiced Queen Martha in the U.S. edition of Nick Jr.'s 'Mike the Knight.' Furthermore, she's the voice of Claire Redfield in several of the 'Resident Evil' video games.
More recently, Court's been a voice director since September 2014, according to her LinkedIn page , and is also a writer/producer.
