>I was Head of Story on “Clarence” from the beginning.

>Obviously Skyler Page sexually assaulted a female artist at CN. Skyler’s a piece of shit, and CN should give him the boot. Emily Partridge is one bad-ass chick for standing up to a guy who a lot of people wanted to cover up for. Skyler’s asshole behavior (though not yet sexual assault) was the main reason I quit the show more than a year ago.

>I can’t imagine how fans of the show are feeling right now. But the reason you like Clarence, in spite of it’s creator, is because the “creator” had very little to do with the show. Despite what it says in the credits, Skyler never wrote a single episode of Clarence. It was created by the writers (me and Spencer Rothbell) and the talented board artists (people like Charlie Gavin, Derek & Diana). We took Skyler’s idea of “a fat dumb kid” and made a character out of it. Skyler mostly “kept the couch from floating away”, and read whatever lines we gave him. There’s been enough victims of Skyler Page, don’t punish the talented crew that actually raised Clarence.

To be fair, I think the awkward acting on Skyler's part gave the show some of its appeal. Not that I think Skyler should stay, but the new actor is almost certainly going to sound more cartoony and exaggerated compared to before.

You know, not long before the incident, I'd said on /co/ that Amy Gillis seemed pretty cool and wondered how things would be if she was a main character who complimented or replaced Clarence. What with her science and sports hobbies being things that'd draw in Jeff and Sumo pretty easily, I think she'd do well as a driving element of the show.
What I'm saying is that if she does now I had nothing to do with it and you can't prove anything.

I was fine with this, and then had to turn it off because come on Clarence you are taking this loosen up thing way too far and I am not sitting through you act that way to Jeff just because he has trouble accepting the risks of competition.

Interested to see what happens with all that. They've got a chance to knock this out of the park and take front position.

Open lesbian lead character, be a way to jump to the front of the line. But I think the want of advertisers and investors wanting them to follow up that with more such things will keep it from happening sadly.

Eh, if advertisers think they could get more bang for their buck off a show with gay characters than a show without one, they’d go for it. Investors and networks are trickier prospects; then again, I doubt CN aired that episode of Clarence without running it by S&P.

Openly gay characters in kids’ cartoons are going to be a ‘thing’ for a couple of years, then it’ll become normalized to the point where only anti-gay whackjobs will be bitching about them. Clarence was just the show that kicked things off. (Would be nice if Korra helped, but I’m not betting on Korrasami becoming canon. I don’t foresee even an after-the-show-ends Word of God proclamation about that.)

I've gotten about a season behind, but Korrasami sounds less likely than Tenzen leaving Pema for Mako.
Now Zhu Lasami, that would make some interesting development with Asami taking the loyalty of Varrick's ever useful servant, and wouldn't involve putting Korra in yet another mess of romance issues. I could even see Zhu Li falling for pretty much anyone willing to ask what she wants to do for change.

I think its good progress as some have just been getting miserable about working in this industry and not being able to be represented in it. If this leads to some action cartoon in a couple years with gay or lesbian main relationship. Good progress, and at least the one everyone hoped for got the conversation started.

Clarence is a good show for this kinda thing just the overall mentality that it has for stuff lends itself to handling it well. They were parents concerned for their son a good solid introduction.

Overall I liked the episode even if Clarance was a little out there in getting Jeff over his anxiety.
