Skater Sumo on Clarence

clarence-skater-sumo

Clarence is one of my favorite shows on TV. That’s favorite shows, not just cartoons. I’ve been anticipating a skateboarding episode since the show premiered. In the second season it’s finally happened with episode 9 titled “Skater Sumo.” Ryan “Sumo” Sumozski is Clarence’s friend, not a Japanese wrestler. When some girls from school show up with new skateboards he flips out with envy. Sumo’s large family is cash strapped, so he has to make his own. Clarence has his own issues, and sticks to rollerblading. Will Sumo leave his best friend behind? This is the best portrayal of skateboarding in a cartoon that I’ve ever seen. It captures the pure joy of being young on a skateboard for the first time, and at the same time it’s aware of skateboarding culture in today’s world. You can catch a couple previews over at Cartoon Network. If you don’t get Cartoon Network you should resist to the urge to watch the bootleg clips on Youtube because none of them are complete and they will ruin the experience of watching the entire episode unfold organically. Try to find a way to watch this intact if you can. There’s bunch of stills after the jump.

  1. It really is a great show. My son turned me on to it and my wife loves it too. My mother in law even made him a “little buddy” doll because he kept asking for one for xmas. We’ll have to check this one out.

    • A Little Buddy doll? NO WAY. You must send me a picture. My wife won’t watch that episode because it creeps her out.

  2. Fully into Clarence! I record them all. The Skater Sumo episode was so on point I couldn’t believe it. This cartoon is brilliant.

    Its my favourite show on TV too. My afterwork treat is to sit down with the kids and watch it. My best episode was the Wizard Dollar one
