Hey kids, welcome to The Big Comfy Couch where learning is fun!

The Big Comfy Couch is about a little clown named Loonette and her doll Molly with their Big Comfy couch. The couch has everything known to man inside it - be it an umbrella, a hat, or a kitchen sink! Co-stars include Granny Garbanzo, Auntie Macassar (Seasons 1-5), and Major Bedhead, who pops in for visits. And unbeknownst to Loonette, two dustbunnies, Fuzzy and Wuzzy, live under Loonette's couch.

The Big Comfy Couch ran on YTV from 1993-1997. During that stretch, it became a hit on America Public Television. Key to that success was the foresight of John Cherry (former director of Ernest P. Worrell commercials), who has gone on to handle The Big Comfy Couch properties in the United States under what is now called Tadpole Kids.

After five off-years, The Big Comfy Couch returned to production with its sixth series of 13 shows, released in 2003, bringing with it a new character, Uncle Chester. Handling U.S. disribution of the series are American Public Television and Nashville Public Television (Npt). Air dates for Season 6 refer to their initial broadcast on Npt, which had first run of the sixth series.

Canadian viewers can see The Big Comfy Couch on Treehouse (a branch of YTV).

[Episodes are listed in U.S. air order. Although the editor acknowledges that Canada's running order is different, this guide does not reflect such dates.]moreless
