"Our house was so much fun," Drew (right) told PEOPLE. "It was so strange, exciting and wonderful growing up in our household," Jonathan added, "because our friends would come over, and they would sit, stunned and silent, because my parents are goofballs. That's where we get it from."

"We grew up on a ranch, so if we were just getting together with friends, it was never just, 'Oh, come over to our house and play video games,' " Jonathan explained of their outdoorsy upbringing.

"We'd all go out on the horses and we'd be riding or we'd be doing something adventurous," said Drew.

The twins turned a profit as clowns in 1987, Drew (left) was "Curly" and Jonathan was "Dimples."

"At 8 years old, we started getting hired out as apprentice clowns, and we did that for years, until we were making like fifty bucks an hour," said Jonathan.

Added Drew, "It was crazy. We were just sitting there buying candy for all our friends."

Drew (right) and Jonathan (in 1994) were "quite good on the bagpipes," said their father, Jim. The well-groomed stars wouldn't likely approve of their mid-'90s hairstyles these days.
