Killer Klown from Outer Space

Killer Klowns from Outer Space is the name of this campy "aliens from outer space attack earth" movie.


The alien spaceship resembled a large circus big top. It was constructed of metal, however.


After hitting their victims with lethal pies, the aliens encased them in what appeared to be pink cotton candy. Periodically, each alien would poke a long straw into this "cotton candy" and take a long sip.


The first victim of the aliens was a dog (followed closely by the dog's owner).


The discarded popcorn "bullets" eventually hatched baby killer klowns.


The movie in this question is 1951's The Fat Man, in which a circus owner and multiple killer, Ed Deets, hides behind the makeup of a clown.


It starred none other than the great  Emmett Kelly Sr. Young Emmett Kelly Sr.


Emmett Kelly Sr. in The Fat ManEmmett refused to let his beloved Weary Willie image be smeared by such a portrayal, so his one condition was for the studio to let him play the part in whiteface makeup.


Ed Deets murdered 3 people.


Ed Deets final victim was played by Hollywood heartthrob Rock Hudson.


The 1950s television series wasSuperman in the 50s Superman, starring George Reeves.


The clown villain was called Crackers.


Peter Brocco played the part of Crackers, the villainous clown. William Wayne played the part of Rollo, the good clown.


Even Superman had his limits and could only fly fast enough to save one of the falling clowns, so he chose to save the clown who was pushed off the roof , assuming correctly that this would be the good one.
20 The name of this episode of Superman is The Day the Clown Cried. (not to be confused with the popular name for the Hartford bigtop fire disaster, The Day the Clowns Cried.)


In the 1960s television series Batman (and in later movies and cartoons) , the villainous (and totally insane) clown was called the Joker.


Caeser Romero was the Joker

In the Batman television series, the Joker was played delightfully by veteran actor, Caesar Romero.

23 Jack Nicholson as the Joker

In the Batman Movie starring Michael Keaton series, the much more villainous Joker was played by veteran actor, Jack Nicholson.


Mark Hamill  (Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga), supplies the voice of the Joker in the animated Batman television series. The Joker's evil (and insane) clown henchperson is Dr. Harley Quinlin, otherwise known as Harlequin.


In the Michael Keaton movie (but not in the original comic book), the Joker is the previously unknown villain who shot and killed Batman / Bruce Wayne's parents when he was a child.
26 The Star Was episode in question was Episode One: The Phantom Menace.
27 The evil villain was, of course, Darth Maul.
28 Ray Parks as Darth MaulThe makeup artist that created Darth Maul was instructed to come up with something based on the scariest image he knew. The result was rejected as too frightening, so he designed another alien face based on his second greatest fear; Bozo the Clown. (The man is obviously an unfortunate coulrophobic). The new look was accepted and used in the film.


In Star Wars - Phantom Menace, Darth Maul was played by Ray Parks.


Darth Maul's lightsaber emitted a laser blade at both ends, so was held at the middle. All other lightsabers in the Star Wars movies, have a laser blade at one end only; the other end is the lightsaber's handle.


The movie with Jerry Lewis in multiple roles, one of which was a child-hating clown is 1965's The Family Jewels.


Jerry Lewis' child-disliking clownJerry Lewis as Everett Peyton the not so nice clownwas named Everett Peyton..


This dark movie is The Day the Clown Cried.  Joan O'Brien wrote the novel by the same name from which the movie was based. 


Jerry Lewis' imprisoned clownJerry Lewis as non heroic clown Helmut Doork was named Helmut Doork ..


Jerry Lewis' The Day the Clown Cried was filmed in 1972  but due to legal battles (like the book's author not being paid for the movie rights), it was never officially released. (I've heard that coulrophobics can purchase bootlegged scripts and movie copies on Ebay)

Well, did anyone who is not from the No Clown Zone get all the answers right?
