Skyler Page's (Film/Video MFA 11) new series, Clarence, premieres today (April 14) at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT on Cartoon Network. The former Adventure Time storyboard artist has been developing the series since 2012.
The PG-rated series revolves around a young, optimistic chubby kid named Clarence who goes on imaginative adventures in the suburbs. Page also voices the title character. Above is a 11-minute preview of the series.
Whitney Matheson of USA Today said that the show "blends just the right amount of humor, weirdness and optimism."
Another CalArtian, Nelson Boles (Film/Video BFA 12), serves as the series' creative director.
Below is Page's CalArts student film, Crater Face.
