Cartoon Network Fires Creator of ‘Clarence’ Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

Skyler Page, the creator of Cartoon Network series “Clarence,” has been fired from Cartoon Network Studios amid allegations of sexual assault made by a female co-worker.

In a series of Twitter posts on Tuesday and Wednesday, artist Emily Partridge accused Page of assaulting her, although the details of the alleged incident are not clear. A Cartoon Network rep confirmed that Page had been dismissed as an employee of the Burbank-based animation facility.

“Skyler Page is no longer an employee at Cartoon Network Studios,” a spokesman said.

Cartoon Brew was first to report on the allegations.

“Clarence” bowed in April and has performed well for the cabler. Page wrote the pilot episode and served as the voice of the titular character about an optimistic boy. The show is expected to continue with production of new episodes without Page.

Page could not immediately be reached for comment. Before creating “Clarence,” Page worked on Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.”

It was not clear from Partridge’s comments on Twitter where the alleged incident took place. A Burbank Police Department spokesman said there was no record of a police report having been filed involving Cartoon Network Studios.
