Skyler Page, the creator of Cartoon Network’s animated short series, “Clarence,” has exited the production amid sexual assault allegations.
“Skyler Page is no longer an employee at Cartoon Network Studios,” a Cartoon Network spokesperson confirmed to TheWrap via a statement.
Multiple persons have taken to social media with allegations that Page sexually harassed women. At the center of the allegations is “Adventure Time” storyboard artist Emily Partridge.
Partridge took to Twitter with a series of tweets regarding what allegedly occurred between her and Page.
Partridge said that Cartoon Network human resources is aware and working on her allegations against Page.
On Thursday, Patrick Harpin, a former writer for “Clarence,” took to Tumblr to express that he believed Partridge’s accusations.
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.
Harpin goes on to allege that Page contributed very little to “Clarence.”
Despite what it says in the credits, Skyler never wrote a single episode of Clarence.
Harpin didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
As to the nature of the harassment, another artist, Maré Odomo, came forward with further allegations against Page. It’s unclear at this time what her association is to Partridge, Page or Cartoon Network, if any.
Ryan Pequin, a storyboard artist on Cartoon Network’s “Regular Show,” also came forward with knowledge of Page’s behavior toward women and alleged that Page suffers from mental illness.
Page previously worked on storyboarding and writing for Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time” and “Secret Mountain Fort Awesome.” He developed “Clarence” at Cartoon Network Studios in 2012 as part of the company’s animated short development initiative.
