  • show Description
  • Clifford - at one time, he was just a small puppy, the runt of the litter. Then, Emily Elizabeth's love made him grow big and he became big, red Clifford, the subject of the popular PBS Kids series, Clifford the Big Red Dog. But what about before then? Clifford's Puppy Days explores just that. Set in the big city Clifford and Emily Elizabeth lived in before moving to Birdwell Island, this series features Clifford's adventures when he was just a small puppy. The main staff for the series is largely the same of Clifford the Big Red Dog (such as writers and producers), but watch for a brand new cast and new environments for this curious, little puppy to explore. The program features a diverse cast of voice talent. Grey Delisle is back as Emily Elizabeth. Kath Soucie, who voices the character viewers love to hate on Clifford the Big Red Dog, Jetta, voices Daffodil, Emily Elizabeth's pet rabbit. Other big names include Henry Winkler voicing Norville and Lara Jill Miller as Clifford. The first two episodes of Clifford's Puppy Days premiered Labor Day, September 1st, 2003 as part of the PBSKids "Pet-Tacular," that aired on most PBS stations.moreless

    Trivia (64)

    • The promo for Lipton soup at the beginning and end of the episodes still refers to Clifford the Big Red Dog and not Clifford's Puppy Days.

    • Jess Harnell is incorrectly credited as "Jeff Harnell" in the closing credits.

    • Close-captioning in "Clifford's Club House" spells Zo's name as "Zoe."

    • In the scene in "Clifford's Club House" where the animals are considering using the gameroom as the clubhouse, Daffodil's nose turns black at one point.

    • In the scene in "Paw Print Picasso" where Clifford talks to Daffodil about the painting late at night, Daffodils nose turns black as she goes back to sleep.

    • In the Clifford the Big Red Dog story "The Big Sleepover", it's said that it's the first time that Clifford has been away from Emily Elizabeth for the night, but "Clifford's Super Sleepover" directly contradicts that. Not only that, but in "Clifford's Super Sleepover," Clifford creates a huge ruckus and can't sleep at all through the night, whereas in "Clifford's Super Sleepover," although he's lonely, his friends are able to distract him and he eventually ends up going to sleep peacefully.

    • At the beginning of "Just the Right Size," the Howard family clock chimes for 3 P.M., but at the end of the episode, it reads 1:25 P.M.

    • At one point in "Fine Feathered Friend," Norville splashes Clifford and his friends, covering them in water and leaves. The focus changes, Norville leaves and when the focus changes back, Clifford and company are completely clean.

    • Evan: But Bill Mazer asked me to play basketball…
      Those who grew up in New York probably know the real Bill Mazer. From 1971 to 1991, he had been sportscaster for the news at WNYW (the eventual Fox 5). Mazer is currently on NYC talk radio station WEVD.

    • Norville: Boy, it sure is lonely at the top.
      "Lonely at the top" is a common catchphrase regarding the burden on top corporate managers and a song by Mick Jagger.

    • Nina: Great glasses. Happy Wacky Wednesday.
      As part of her crazy outfit for Wacky Wednesday, Emily Elizabeth wears a pair of Groucho Marx glasses.

    • The plot of "Garden Delights" is extremely similar to that of the Clifford the Big Red Dog story "Doggie Garden," in which the character Cleo tried to plant dog toys, hoping to grow more.

    • Mr. Solomon: This is gonna be so delicious. Clifford: What's Mr. Solomon doing? Zo: Oh, he's making potato pancakes called latkes and special Hanukah donuts called sufganiyot. Clifford: (slowly) Sufganiyot? Flo: Uh huh. They're filled with jelly. Mmm-mmm. According to Wikipedia, latkes are a type of potato cake eaten by most of the Jewish population, though not necessarily Jewish in origin. Sufganiyot is the plural of sufganiyah.
