''It'' is a 1986 horror novel by American author Creator/StephenKing. The story is about seven children being terrorized by a malevolent monster -- known only as It -- that takes the form of their deepest fears but primarily appears in the form of a clown, calling itself [[MonsterClown "Pennywise the Dancing Clown"]]. The novel features a nonlinear narrative which alternates between two different time periods (1958 and 1985) and shifts among the different perspectives and stories of its seven protagonists. It deals with themes which would eventually become King staples: the power of memory, childhood trauma and the ugliness lurking behind a small-town façade.

* DisappearedDad: Ben Hanscom and Eddie Kapsbrak's fathers both no longer figure in their lives -- Eddie's dad is definitely dead, making his mother extremely overprotective of him, while it's never specified whether Ben's dad died or just up and left when Ben was little. In the tv series he and his mother live with his aunt and cousins who bully him and say he's lucky they're willing to take him in, and It takes the form of his father and points to a mausoleum saying 'that's my home now', confirming that he's dead.

** Bev's dad is present in 1958, but apparently in 1985 she hasn't spoken to him in so long she's not even sure if he's still alive. She goes to visit their old apartment to see if he still lives there and finds Mrs. Kersh instead.

** Ben's list of movie vampires that Pennywise's Dracula looks nothing like includes Reggie Nalder. His vampire role was in ''Salem's Lot''.

In 2009, Creator/WarnerBros (who owned Creator/{{Lorimar}} when the original TV adaption was made, but was folded into Warner Bros. TV in 1993) announced that a remake of ''It'' was being planned, with Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison tabbed to produce. However, the film spent some time in DevelopmentHell until Andrés Muschietti, director of ''Film/{{Mama}}'', was attached and production began in summer 2016, with Creator/BillSkarsgard as Pennywise the Dancing Clown to be released in 2017. See Film/It2017 for that.

** Eddie Kasprak's mother and wife are also an example, although the abuse is more emotional in their case.

** Actually no, she is still being over the top even in this case. While it can certainly be argued that regular exposure to ionising radiation is something that should be limited, there is little evidence fluoroscopes 'gave you cancer'. Only one salesperson - people using and demonstrating these machines for ''years'' - has been confirmed as developing cancer. This was a BCC (basal cell carcinoma) of the foot and could easily have happened whether he was exposed to radiation or not.
