Martin the Clown
The Clown was hatched from a rusted water heater on the tundras of Siberia. He wanders the Earth in search of voice amplification equipment to put to use in helping others forget all of the negatives in life.
The Clown has been with Mandyland since its inception.
AND...he's kinda famous...
