* The JerryLewis-esque clown in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' episode "Clown and Out." (A few of the characters view him as a MonsterClown, however, as they have "clownophobia."[[note]]The actual word for an irrational fear of clowns is "coulrophobia".[[/note]]) He's eventually tricked into entering a rocket ship and blasted to Mars, where he finds [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff he's much more popular among Martian children than Earthling children]].

The past 30 years or so have seen a surge in the popularity of evil, [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]]-style {{Monster Clown}}s who deliberately and very effectively invert everything clowns were traditionally assumed to represent - that is, making people laugh, especially children. However, there ''was'' a time when clowns were treated in the popular media as sympathetic figures of whimsy and silly fun. Outside of their early habitats like rodeos and circuses, [[GrandfatherClause pretty much the only clown left in the public eye who is still permitted to act at all clown-like]] is [[UsefulNotes/McDonalds Ronald McDonald]]. (And now he's been phased out of the advertising.) But in days past...

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': Subverted in the episode ''Be A Clown''; the Joker disguises himself as a party clown by stealing the outfit of an actual party clown and he manages to pull out some good laughter before he decides to drop of his disguise. Especially the kids love "Jekko the Clown". The party guests don't learn that the Joker is disguised since he leaves the party before the birthday cake explodes (and his plan is foiled by Bruce Wayne, no less) and the birthday kid in question looks up to "Jekko" because he wants to become a magician himself, going so far to run away from home and follow "Jekko". But once "Jekko" starts acting AxCrazy, the kid questions him and "Jekko" reveals his true identity.

* The Franchise/SuperMarioBros series has Lemmy Koopa, one of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Koopaling siblings]]. While he technically is a MonsterClown, as he serves main villain [[BigBad Bowser]] and fights against the Mario Bros', it's stated in the manual for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' that he would join the circus rather than doing evil acts. Also, he is easily the goofiest and the most non-intimidating of the Koopalings, and attacks with rubber balls and ridiculously cartoonish-looking bombs, in contrast to his siblings' more hardcore weaponry.
