Big Comfy Couch - Oversized couch featured on the award winning educational
program for preschoolers, THE BIG COMFY COUCH/SYN/PBS/1993+.
Alyson Court played Loonette, an energetic clown, who sat on a big, comfy
green couch with a floral print and played with her best friend, a doll named
Molly Dolly (manipulated by Bob Stutt).
The huge oversized couch used on the show helped create the illusion that the
adult actress Alyson Court was a small child sitting on a large couch (an idea
used by comedian Lily Tomlin in the '60s & '70s when she sat in an oversized
rocking chair playing the role of her little girl character Edith Ann).
