The film was produced by independent film company Barron Entertainment Films in Western Australia and educational film company WonderWorks in the United States, was directed by George Whaley. It was distributed by Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It featured Australian actors such as Clayton Williamson, Noni Hazelhurst, Ernie Dingo, Rebecca Smart, and Jill Perryman, and also featured veteran American actor Van Johnson along with French actor Jean-Michel Dagory. This film also features the first film role for Heath Ledger, who would later appear in Blackrock (1997) with Smart and Candy (2006) with Hazlehurst. Ledger's role appeared in the last ten minutes; he played an orphan clown who closes the film by delivering its final lines. His role was so minor he was not even mentioned in the film's credits. This series was followed up with a sequel entitled Clowning Around 2, which was filmed in 1992.
