|~ Fortune teller to Casey|
Cheezo, Bippo and Dippo were the main psychotic antagonists of the slasher movie, Clownhouse.
The local state insane asylum has sent a majority of the hospital's inmates to the carnival for therapy, but three lunatic psychos were escapees from a mental institution who happened to escape during the time a circus was in town - they proceeded to murder three clowns and take their costumes as their own.
By fate or coincidence Casey, the child protagonist of the film and who had been constantly influenced by his intense fear of clowns. One night, the three boys are left alone when their mother visits relatives. when he is taken to the circus by his brothers Geoffrey and Randy to try and combat his fear of clowns (which is a genuine phobia to him) - unfortunately for them the three psychotic clowns decide to follow them home that night and cause mayhem.
The three insane clowns succeeded in apparently killing Casey's eldest brother, Randy - but both Bippo and Dippo were defeated by the combined efforts of Casey and Geoffery - however Cheezo, the head crazy clown, proved more formidable and gave chase to Casey across the entire house: ultimately catching him and attempting to choke him to death: Cheezo was ultimately stabbed in the back with an axe by Geoffery, killing the mad clown - the end of the movie has Geoffery comforting Casey as the as the police finally arrive to help them. Scene goes to the movie credits.

|~ End narration|
- Clownhouse is somewhat unique in the genre, for not relying too heavily on gore or violence but on the suspense, insanity, creepiness, and horror made popular with the 1978 classic Halloween. Cheezo, Bippo and Dippo also share a few similarities with Michael Myers, mainly that they're silent psychopaths who go on a killing spree after recently escaping the asylum they were confined in.
- Clownhouse also shares some similarities with a popular movie that would come out a year later, Home Alone, though it's unlikely one inspired the other and though they both have the premise of evil men trying to enter a house and eventually succeeding, Home Alone is far more comedic than Clownhouse.
