I'm a writing tutor, so I, too, am very anal about spelling, grammar, and punctuation. I only correct when asked though.
So since you asked... I believe mar-leabowtique is correct. Clippie/clippy isn't actually formally recognized as a word that I have found in any dictionary, so I guess we can only judge it on how it is usually spelled. I see clippie most of the time, and when I went to Dictionary.com just now, there were some ads with clippie in them-nothing for clippy.
Now, go wild: Spell that word any ol' way you wish!
