Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living… in South Park. He lives with his parents Roger and Betsy Donovan and his sister. 

Profession… student at South Park Elementary. Not the brightest student among his classmates, as evidenced by his answer of “twelve” when prompted with “two times five.” As Clyde jokes, whenever he's confused about what's going on in a movie, he's always relieved when Morgan Freeman shows up and explains the plot to him.

Interests… Playboy. While all the other students often play World of Warcraft, Clyde prefers to read Playboy magazine instead.

Relationship Status… single. Although he’s only in elementary school, Clyde has been in many relationships after being picked out as the most attractive among the boys, in a list made by the girls. Some of these were more legitimate than others. In many cases, girls just wanted to get some free shoes from Clyde’s father’s shoe store. But Clyde isn't a big fan of girls in general. As he says, "You know why girls wear make-up and perfume? Cause they're ugly and they stink."

Challenge… dealing with the antics of Cartman, another student at South Park Elementary, who makes fun of Clyde for being fat. And that is the nicest thing Cartman calls Clyde.

Personality… sensitive and impressionable. Clyde shows his emotions easily and can be seen breaking into tears on many occasions. On the other hand, he is shown to be more moral than his peers, like when he notifies the teacher to prevent Kenny from being sock bathed by the class, due to accusations that Kenny had lice. Clyde also sometimes lets things get to his head, such as when he was named the most attractive boy by the girls and posed in his room at night after school.
