Exactly What It Says on the Tin. There is no such thing as kids being not scared by clowns. At least in fiction.

Also see Monster Clown, that can give this reaction in Real Life.

Examples:
  • "Can't sleep, clown will eat me".
    • In a Treehouse of Horror comic, Marge makes clown costumes for Lisa and Bart. Their response is negative. As Bart says, Krusty is the only clown that doesn't scare them.
  • In the Lilo & Stitch series, Experiment 300 "Spooky" transforms in things that scare who's watching him. When is Lilo's turn, he becomes a clown.
  • Timmy Turner says he haves fear of clowns in one episode.

Maybe this is a variation on 'Uncanny Valley'?
