In her debut short, Clarice works and sings at a nightclub called the Acorn Club. Her beauty and talent catches the interests of both Chip and Dale, who proceeded to compete for her affections - the first time Chip and Dale have ever worked against each other. Despite the short going on to become one of Chip and Dale's most beloved, Clarice would not appear in any future animation (sans in archived footage of the short when played on Walt Disney anthology series and House of Mouse). Regardless, the trope of Chip and Dale competing for the affections of an attractive female would become somewhat of a staple, specifically in Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers.
In Japan, however, Clarice has been regularly featured in media and merchandise involving the Mickey Mouse franchise. She would often feature as the definitive love interest of both Chip and Dale (in the same vein as Minnie Mouse is to Mickey, and Daisy Duck is to Donald). An example of this is the Disney UniBEARsity spin-off franchise. Clarice appears in the story Two Bears and a Kiss, in which she was responsible for providing Chip 'n' Dale the materials to make their teddy bears.
In the simulation game, Clarice is a resident of Castleton alongside other classic Disney characters. She is associated with Daisy and owns a style shop in which she can take the player's current attire and create variations with different colors and styles.
Clarice made her first live appearance at Disneyland in 1955. Nowadays, she rarely appears in the North American parks, her most recent appearance being during the reopening ceremony of the Disneyland Railroad on July 28, 2017, but is extremely common at the Tokyo Disney Resort, as she is a widely popular character amongst Japanese audiences.
In 2019, Clarice made a rare stateside appearance alongside Chip 'n' Dale for a character greeting during the RunDisney Walt Disney World Marathon.
Though she is the same as Chip and Dale in that her fur is brown, some Japanese promotional art gives her fur a more yellowish tone.
Despite only appearing in one animated short, Clarice is very popular in Japan alongside Chip and Dale themselves. She shares the same level of popularity with Minnie Mouse and Miss Bunny with Japanese audiences and is very prominent at the Tokyo Disney Resort.
While Chip and Dale have been at the Disney Theme Parks since 1955, Clarice was present during Disneyland's opening ceremony on July 17, 1955 and was a meetable character throughout the 1950s. She eventually disappeared from the Disney Theme Parks in 1961. She later returned to the Disney Theme Parks in 2005 and was exclusively found at the Tokyo Disney Resort, where she's very prominent. Clarice later started appearing at the Walt Disney World resort and the Disneyland Resort in Spring 2009. She eventually became prominent at the Disneyland Paris resort in the early 2010s and at Hong Kong Disneyland.
Back when Disney Characters appeared at the Ice Capades shows held in 1955 which were later borrowed for Disneyland's opening ceremony, Clarice was depicted without clothes (just like Chip 'n' Dale), and was barefoot and only kept her flower around her head. She also shared the same design as the costumes for Chip and Dale.
