The Creation of Pennywise

When “It” was on TV, I could not look away. I thoroughly enjoyed it even while Pennywise terrified me (clowns!) Did you ever wonder about where Pennywise came from? From Lord Darkness from Legend of course.

Two very memorable characters played by Tim Curry.

One thought on “The Creation of Pennywise

  1. I just listened to a podcast with Mark Hamil (A Kevin Smith Fatman on Batman Smodcast) and learned that Curry recorded the lines of The Joker for the first handful of episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, but they ended up not digging his work for some reason and re-recording it all with Hamil. So somewhere out there there’s audio of Tim Curry as The Joker!
