Dexter's Laboratory Wiki

Puppet Pals Mitch and Clem (voiced by Rob Paulsen and Tom Kenny) are puppets seen in a TV show during the Justice Friends segments. They also appeared in short live-action time-filler segments of their own, in the style of some Sesame Street sketches that had a character (usually Cookie Monster, Grover, or Kermit the Frog, among others) behind the show's iconic brick wall. They seem to be a parody of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street. Their main sketch is Mitch bonking Clem on the head, which is most likely a reference to classic puppets Punch and Judy. In one episode they are controlled by Major Glory and Valhallen and vice versa in Krunk's dream.

Puppet Pal Mitch (voiced by Rob Paulsen) is always on the right of the screen during the Puppet Pals Show. He styles a purple colored bonk stick, which he uses to hit Clem in almost every skit. He wears a white shirt with a red bow tie similar to Pee-wee Herman's. He sports a somewhat puberty-like voice.


Puppet Pal Clem (voiced by Tom Kenny) is the lesser known of the duo. He is shorter than Mitch, and wears a hat with a flower on it, along with a striped shirt. He receives a bonk on the head by Mitch in every episode, and his voice is similar to that of Barney Gumble from The Simpsons as portrayed by Dan Castellaneta.
