Default Can Anybody Identify This TV Show?

My son in law was describing a tv show from the 50's or 60's where in the beginning of the show there is a clown. He described the show as something like "Way Out" or Twilight Zone. Creepy I guess. Especially if there is a clown involved! Anyway it doesn't ring a bell with me and I have a great memory! So does this sound familiar to anybody?

Could it be Lights Out? It wasn't a clown that introduced the show but a talking head.

It was a spooky anthology show that ran I believe from 1949-1952. I've seen a couple of episodes of it over on youtube. Can't really think of a clown show. I know there was a Big Top circus show in the 50's as well as Circus Boy but they didn't have clowns in the beginning of the shows.

I talked to my daughter but my son in law wasn't home. I gave her the information and told her to look it up on youtube. She said that she'd get back with me later after she talked to him. She did say that whatever it was it scared the crap out of him when he was a kid(He is remembering a clown) So we'll see!

He said that's not it. I asked him to give me more info if he can remember anything . He does insist there was a clown at the beginning that scared the crap out of him!
