It was a water toy that had a clown's head as the base and a detachable hat which rose in the air when water came out of the clown head. The hat spun around about 5 feet in the air on the stream of water and shot water from the top of the hat.

It wasn't called "Mr." Fun Fountain, but simply "Fun Fountain" (look at the box), and the stream of water went up more like 12 feet, even 15 the way that we used it.

Win I was a kid my cousin dared me to sit on it. Without thinking I did. I could feel the water in my eye balls. I think this was my first learning experience with a dare.

One time I ran through the stream of water, and leaped over a copperhead snake that was trying to bite me. I will never forget this.

I can't believe there is a phot of this online! Brilliant, I was just mentioning it and thought "What are the chances?" but YES here it is! Used to have one of these when I was about 5-7 years old and loved it.

My mother and I were just talking about this toy yesterday!! My brother and sister and I had so much fun as children with this toy. We played for hours on end. When the sun was high in the sky, out came Mr Clown, as we referred to him. I wish I could find one for my children as well. I know they would get a kick out of this toy.
