Loonette The clown is the main character to the BBC's show The Big Comfy Couch which also premiered on PBS. Loonette is a young clown who still acts like she's five and plays with her dolly named Molly. She lives on her big green comfy couch. Her best friend is Molly, her doll, and a man named Major Bedhead who is an adult. She lives with her Auntie Macassar and her Uncle Chester but they are never there unless it's a birthday or a holiday like Christmas. Her parents are never seen or mentioned.
Loonette is played by Alyson Court and Ramona Gilmour-Darling. Loonette often goes over to her Granny Garbonzo's garden and hang's out with Granny, Snickelfritz and Major Bedhead. Loonette sometimes thinks she knows more then Major Bedhead and thinks out loud about it every day. Sometimes Loonette forgets her manners and takes stuff from Major Bedhead when she is excited when a package arrives for her even if the package isn't her's. She is 5 in clown years.
