Who is Major Bedhead?

Major Bedhead (played by Fred Stinson) is a recurring character on The Big Comfy Couch, a Canadian children’s television series created by Cheryl  Wagner, that aired from 1992 to 2006. The show is about a clown named Loonette and her doll Molly who solve everyday problems on their big comfy couch. Major Bedhead is the local mail-delivery clown who stops by to give Loonette postcards from her Auntie Macassar or Uncle Chester. He also visits Granny Garbanzo’s garden, where he encounters Snicklefritz, Granny’s cat.

Major Bedhead is a friendly and cheerful clown who has many clowning skills such as juggling, pogo sticking, and unicycling. He also likes to play games and tell jokes with Loonette and Molly. However, he is not very responsible or punctual, as he often spends too much time chatting with his friends and neglects his mail delivery duties. He also tends to be clumsy and accident-prone, often bumping into things or falling off his unicycle.
