Community Reviews

age 4+


A great way for children to learn about the widespread spectrum of community. Clarence is a great representation of positivity and kind-heartedness. He always manages to bring people together and always has fun, no matter what the obstacle. My 3yr old loves the show, as do I. And we cannot stop singing both the intro and outdo music. Well done to Skyler Page for creating a fantastic show that really keeps you wanting more.

This cartoon is genius.

My kids are 5 and 8, both love Clarence, as do I ( their dad). On the face of it, it’s silly and a bit vulgar at times but over time you’ll grow to love the characters and genuinely like them. It’s hilarious with brilliant songwriting, nostalgic for adults who grew up in 80s/90s.
