Too Gross For Comfort

Too Gross For Comfort is the twenty-third episode in Season 1 of Clarence.


Chelsea, a girl from school invades the school boys' treehouse, and they must gross her out so she leaves.


The boys went to their tree house and was uncomfortable with Chelsea around joining them. So, they made a plan to gross Chelsea so she would leave. Each boy tried to gross Chelsea out but their grossness isn't enough for Chelsea. It's Sumo's turn to gross Chelsea out. Sumo was the grossest one among the boys. Chelsea and Sumo did great grossing each other. But however, the two both thought of the same gross thing by kissing each other. The boys were grossed out (except for Clarence) and said "aww, you two are going to get married and have kids one that looks like you and her." The two both opened their eyes and was grossed out so they ran.

  • During Sumo and Chelsea's story duel, one of the stories Sumo tells is about his friend on the "ice planet" cutting open a creature. This is a parody of the scene in the 1980 film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in which Han Solo uses Luke Skywalker's lightsaber to slice open his dead tauntaun so it can be used as a makeshift shelter. Chelsea even states "that's from a movie!"
