Name That Trauma :: Reader 442 on a Creeping, Colorless Clown

This has been bugging me forever and I hope you guys can help me solve the mystery. So when I was around 5 or 6 my brothers and I came in from playing outside on a gloomy day. The gloom is just so strong in the memory I don’t know why. Anyway I turned on the T.V. and saw the creepiest clip ever. It was a black and white film. There was a little short clown who was tip-toeing across the living room floor, I think. It was the way he was moving that creeped me out the most. He would start walking then stop really quickly and look at the camera. Then he’d start walking again.

Anyway, it moves to another scene where a little girl is asleep in her bed. She wakes up only to find that the creepy clown is on top of her toybox staring at her. Oh yeah, he has this, slightly too happy, smile on his face. So anyway the girl runs to her parents bedroom and is freaking out and the parents tell her it’s nothing, and to go back to sleep. That was when I turned off the T.V. and freaked out until just now 13 years later. I really want to confront this fear and nagging memory. What was the name of the movie??

Please help!

Was this animated or was it live action?

The only things coming to my mind are Poltergeist and Stephen King’s It, but I know that it is not one of those.

“Laugh, Clown, Laugh” starring Lon Chaney?

I’ve never seen all of “Laugh, Clown, Laugh” so I don’t know if a scene like that is in it. It was a shot in the dark.

Cat’s Eyes, a Stephen King anthology has Drew Barrymore as a little girl terrorized by a small goblin dressed as a jester. He jumps on her chest and tries to steal her breath. It’s not colourless, but our memories play tricks sometimes.
