Its somewhat jarring to see the angular and stylized Clyde and Leonardo amongst the typical stock character designs of Little Lulu. However, it does provide for a "don't fit in / fish out of water" context that fits these two perfectly. I myself have long pondered if The Amazing Gustav Brothers from The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley weren't a homage to the fondly remembered duo.
Clyde and Leonardo could be considered pre comedy scientists such as Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, or Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank.
