‘Clarence’ creator Skyler Page pleads not guilty to toy theft: report

Skyler Page, the embattled creator of Cartoon Network’s “Clarence” series, pleaded not guilty to stealing toys from a California department store this month, TMZ reported Saturday.

Page, 33, was charged with misdemeanor petty theft for allegedly pocketing merchandise, including Nerf guns, on Dec. 13 from a Ross location in Burbank.

Police say they received a theft complaint from the department store and a description of the suspect as “unhoused,” according to the incident report obtained by TMZ.

Officers reportedly spotted Page sitting near the store with several Nerf guns. TMZ reports Page claimed he couldn’t afford to pay for the guns, so he took them.

The Post reached out to Page’s family and the Burbank Police Department for comment.

Page, who hails from Arizona, has been out of the public eye since the Cartoon Network announced in July 2014 he had been fired.

After working as a storyboard artist for the network’s “Adventure Time” series, Page created “Clarence” and voiced the titular character. The cartoon followed a 10-year-old optimistic boy and his friends. The pilot aired in February 2014.

Page’s exit from the series came after Emily Partridge, an artist who worked on “Adventure Time,” alleged Page had sexually assaulted her.

“I had heard rumours about Skyler being ‘quirky’ but nothing about his f–ked up behaviour towards women until AFTER what happened to me,” she tweeted in a series of since-deleted posts.

“Skyler Page is no longer an employee at Cartoon Network Studios,” read the Cartoon Network statement to BuzzFeed News following the allegations.

“Clarence” wrapped up its run in 2018 after more than 100 episodes.
