The firefighter clown from the brave little toaster
Evil clown
The Evil Clown is a minor villain in The Brave Little Toaster. The only word he says other than demented laughter is "Run."


His appearance is a demonic clown dressed as a firefighter with a wicked smile holding a fork and fire hose.

Role in the film

The Evil Clown appears in the Toaster's dream. He appears after the Master gets caught by the smoke and the entire room catches on fire. He dares Toaster to run for his life, and Toaster begins to do what the clown dares him to do on what's left of the kitchen counter. The Clown looking very amused at the situation lets out a blast of water that later become a huge wave of forks that he merely escapes from. He disappears after shooting the hose, but is heard laughing in the bathroom with Toaster hanging over a bathtub filled with water and his cord plugged into the circuit losing his grip. As Toaster falls into the bathtub, he and his friends are awoken by a loud thunderclap, bringing him out of his nightmare.


  • The sequence with the clown is considered to be the scariest scene of the movie.
  • His scene is rather pointless, as he does not appear in the original novel. He comes out of nowhere, does not serve any particular purpose, and Toaster never mentions him after the scene ends referred to as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment by movie tropers. This makes it arguably the most realistic depiction of a dream in any Disney production, as real-life dreams are generally considered meaningless, inconsequential, and without any semblance of logic, not even a deliberate lack thereof as with the likes of Wonderland.
  • Given his attire, this clown is similar to the Fireman Clowns from Dumbo.
