Loonette the Clown from The Big Comfy Couch

Loonette (Alyson Court) is the lead character in The Big Comfy Couch, a Canadian children’s show from the 90s. Loonette is a young clown who lives with her dolly named Molly. Every episode begins with Loonette waking up on the eponymous couch. She reads stories to Molly, performs a Clock Rug Stretch, and completes a Ten Second Tidy. Her family and friends, such as Granny Garbanzo and Major Bedhead, are also clowns. Put your hair into pigtails using the red scrunchies, and cut a hole on either side of the purple hat, then slide your hair through. You can also use a wig with detachable pigtail clips as suggested in this guide. While there isn’t an existing replica of her sweater, you can get away with a plain white long sleeve top. For added detail, you can draw the suns and moons with yellow and red marker.
