"Why laugh when you can cry?!"
―Sad Clown

Sad Clown is a minifigure released in May 2013 as part of 71001 Minifigures Series 10. 71001 Minifigures Series 10 [1]


The Sad Clown has white legs, a white waist, a white torso, white arms, and black hands. Wavy black printing on his legs gives the impression that his shirt extends down, and there are three black pompoms on the front of his torso. Sitting between the Sad Clown's head and torso pieces is a ruffle piece. The ruffle piece is the same as the one used by the Thespian, except in black. He has a white face with black eyes, white pupils, black eyebrows, a sad expression, and a black tear dripping down the right side of his face. He wears a white hat with a black rim and two black pompoms. The hat is a new mould.


  • He is based on a clown genre of Italian origin, the Pierrot clown.
  • He is the second minifigure to be entirely black and white, the first one being the Mime.
  • He is the first depressed minifigure.

Official Description This is a description taken from Please do not modify it. (see the source of this quote)

“Why laugh when you can cry?”

To the Sad Clown, everything in life is a tragedy. Things that other Minifigures find joyful and jolly only fill him with sadness and woe. Not even puppies, kittens and birthday parties can turn his melancholy frown upside-down.

Many have tried to cheer him up with surprise presents, funny internet videos, and their favorite knock-knock jokes. But no matter what they do or say, he just sits there and sighs. If only they understood that the Sad Clown is only truly happy when he’s totally and completely miserable!
