It May Have Been a Good Idea at the Time.....
12 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

....but in hind sight "Little Clowns of Happytown" was a perfect example of how a cartoon series can fail so badly due to so many reasons. First off...the animation wasn't all that bad, at least for Saturday Morning standards. What made this show a stinker was the following: It suffered from the "repeated plot" syndrome so common with cartoon series. In the 70's you saw Scooby Doo clones...kids with a sidekick solving mysteries. And in the 80's there were a glut of "cute colonies of mini-beings" (Smurfs, Snorks, Biskitts, and a whole lot of toy based stuff) all featured in shows so watered down in political correct non- violent and quasi-educational purposes) that the older kids used to more energetic shows of the past became bored, and younger kids just were not interested. *The show was aimed at the very young female demographic, not a wise move when cartoons are watched by folks of all ages. Quite frankly, a lot of people are creep-ed out by clowns. Cute or childlike or not. The show was just not very good. Its story lines involved a group of clown children partaking in the spread of happiness. Not much to build on there other than a token harmless bad guy and some very child- oriented sight gags. Other than the very young, it appealed to nobody and was pretty much unwatchable without one becoming annoyed or just bored. The good intentions were there, but the idea was just a bad one.
