Clyde Donovan, formerly Clyde Goodman and Clyde Harris, is one of the boys' classmates.
He has medium-brown hair, wears a burgundy coat, grayish-brown trousers, and sometimes wears ocean-blue mittens. Underneath, he has been shown to wear a green T-shirt with a cow's face on the front. On occasion, he is seen wearing a sports jacket that looks similar to his usual coat. He has been labeled "the second fattest kid next to Cartman" despite appearing about the same weight as the others. He has a somewhat nasal voice, similar to that of Craig's, but lighter.
In "Ginger Kids", Clyde is shown in his pajamas, which consist of green pants and a collared, green shirt with a dinosaur on the left-breast pocket.
In "Quest for Ratings", it is rumored that Clyde only has one testicle, though this is never actually confirmed.
In "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", Clyde is announced as having a colostomy by Mr. Mackey, and as such was incapable of and therefore innocent of defecating into a urinal. However, this was retconned in "Lice Capades" and "Wieners Out".
Clyde Donovan is not very clever, or at least not good at mathematics and is often portrayed as one of the less intelligent members of the class. When his teacher asks him what two times five equals, he guesses twelve - Garrison then referred to him as "a complete retard". Or when he writes a poor essay in another essay on why people need to recycle. However, considering that Mr.Garrison never actually ''teaches'' the kids, it's probably not Clyde's fault.
He has a habit of sobbing uncontrollably whenever he witnesses something upsetting. Examples of this are when he hears Cartman singing in "Fourth Grade", when the adults decide to give all of the money they would have spent on Christmas presents for their kids to the Broflovski's in "It's Christmas in Canada", and when he realizes that there were no crystal clear lagoons, treasure, and plunder after he joined Cartman's "Somalian pirate club" in "Fatbeard". This usually gets an angry response from Cartman.
On several occasions when things get surreal in the show, Clyde shows little or no interest. For instance, when the boys audition for a new fourth friend, and he is eliminated as a candidate, he eventually decides that it is stupid and shows no actual interest in being their fourth friend. Also, while everyone else is obsessing over the World of Warcraft game, he questions its importance and reads Playboy instead, which causes the "rogue" to defeat the other players once again. During "Dances with Smurfs" he does his homework instead of listening to the murder of Gordon Stoltski on the intercom.
