Clown By Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake

Fri Dec. 23 at 10:30PM on WKAR-HD 23.1 & STREAMING | Quentin Blake's Clown is a half-hour animation that brings to life the adventures of a little toy clown, who has been thrown away.

On Christmas Eve he goes on an exciting journey to find a new home for himself and his toy friends. After a series of unhappy incidents, he finds a poor but loving family (two children and a single mother) happy to welcome them in their humble home and love them. It's the story of an unusual outcast that talks about resilience and hope, which will resonate with many viewers in the difficult times we live. At the end of the film, we learn that toys only come alive when children love them.

This special is available to watch live during its airdate on the WKAR Livestream. Watch this special with WKAR Passport at video.wkar.org.
