The songs are actually pretty catchy little tunes, and the story lines are fairly worthwhile. Loonette or Molly usually learns a lesson with the help of their friends Granny Garbanzo and Major Bedhead.
The activity in this show is physical and mental as Loonette, the young clown girl who lives on the couch with her doll Molly, stretches things to the limit. There are songs and stories and wonderful clown neighbours. Granny Garbanzo and her kitty Snicklefritz live next door in a charming gypsy cart, and, everyday, the madcap unicycle courier, Major Bedhead, wheels up with a special package or card that's sure to bounce all the clown friends into exciting new adventures.
THE SHOW'S STAR IS ALYSON COURT.
Alyson Court is a multi-talented performer who has contributed to virtually all forms of media. She has done extensive voice-over work for many productions you probably know, ranging from the Care Bears to Claire Redfield in the hit series of Resident Evil video games. If you don't know Alyson from her other work, you probably know her from her role as Loonette the Clown on the Gemini Award winning The Big Comfy Couch. Alyson is currently working with the CBC on "Get Set for Life".
While The Big Comfy Couch is filled with adventure, it also features tender moments very young viewers recognize and feel. A celebration of mirth on earth, friendship and fun, hilarity and heart, this program is a welcome invitation three- to six-year olds can't resist.
Above is a picture of the star of Big Comfy Couch, of course, without her makeup.
My favourite of all of her tv shows is MY PET MONSTER. She played the character Jill in it and did the best job of it. The show was a modern fable. It was awesome, Just Like Alyson. Alyson, Rock on.
