Am I the only person who's watched this Cartoon Network Show?

I don't watch them much but this show is so damn good, for a kids show.

When I first heard about the show I thought it was primarily just about some retarded kid named Clarence, who's only intent was finding a way to kill your brain cells. But after watching a couple of episodes, I was so so wrong. This show for me, is so nostalgic. What makes it work the most, is the characters.

The Main Character is Clarence, a....well really weird kid who just moved into this new town. He has two friends named Jeff and Sumo. He's always so positive about everything, which paves the way for so many good story arcs and good eps. Clarence and Sumo's friendship remind you of the time spent with your best friend growing up, while Jeff is there to create an interesting story arc or situation.

I find all characters in the show likable and just great, except Jeff. I hate how he's always striving to be so damn perfect. It's like that one kid who figures he's smarter/more mature than everyone, ya know, the kinda kid you always wanted to punch in the face growing up.

So far, I've watched the pilot, the first episode, the 6th episode where he goes on that date, and Belson's sleepover.

The show is kinda like a weird mix of Edd Ed n Eddy, Rugrats, and Spongebob. Somehow though, it works. It's not the best show ever or anything like that, but I find it really really good, compared to the other shows on their network. Everything just works for me. It's probably the only show these days that decides to do it's own thing. No use of Pop-Culture, no references to other brilliant shows/movies, it's just doing it's own thing. It's nostalgic and reminds you of your childhood years, and has a main set of characters that somehow know how to make the show work.

Anyways, those are just my five cents. Anyone else?
