    Mary Wendle
Voiced by: Katie Crown

Clarence's mother.

  • Closer to Earth: She's the most grounded member of her family by far.
  • Good Parents: Mary's rare combination of patience, stamina, humor and unconditional support make her the perfect parent for Clarence. Mary is a very loving and caring mother to her high-energy son, Clarence. She keeps him in check, however.
  • Not So Above It All: Although not as high and mighty as most examples, she's not as grounded as she first appeared. Such as immediately switching gears to spy on "Chalmers Santiago" with Clarence.
  • Parents as People: She's a very accurate portrayal of a lower middle class single mother.
  • Parental Obliviousness: Has a habit of not noticing what mischief Clarence is getting into.

    Charles "Chad" Caswell III
Voiced by: Eric Edelstein

Clarence's mom's slobbish, but amiable live-in boyfriend. Acts as a father figure to Clarence.

  • Alliterative Name: Charles Caswell. Also applies with his nickname.
  • Ambiguously Brown: It may be due to his tan or his natural skin color or even both.
  • Big Eater: He loves to eat.
  • Big Fun: Rather out of shape, but a fun dude.
  • Birds of a Feather: He's a fat goofball... but so is Clarence, and so they get along great.
  • Bumbling Dad: Although not Clarence's genetic dad, for sure he still counts.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Chad can be rather spacey.
  • Drives Like Crazy: He should really keep his eyes on the road.
  • Fat Idiot: A chubby Cloudcuckoolander.
  • Fat Slob: Subverted. A bit close to Homer Simpson's type.
  • Kavorka Man: The dude looks like a giant ape in a tank top (or what happens when you combine Homer Simpson with Greg from Steven Universenote ). And he is somehow dating Clarence's mom, who doesn't look like a, well, ape.
  • Manchild: He has a goofy personality.
  • Nice Guy: He may be a screw-up, but he's a lovable guy who gets along great with Clarence.
  • One of the Kids: Gets along great with Clarence and his friends. In the episode "Dinner Party", he opts out of socializing with the grown-up's at a dinner party hosted by Breehn's parents, and instead joins in on an adventure with the kids in the attic.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His full name is only seen on his license in "Where the Wild Chads Are".
  • Parental Substitute: Chad acts as a positive father figure to Clarence since Clarence's real father is MIA.

How well does it match the trope?
