It's the day of the Birdwell Island fair. The dogs (Clifford, T-Bone and Cleo) are there and they're hoping to snag some food. Since it's a carnival, there's going to be lots of concessions. They know that it's okay to eat anything that anyone drops on the ground. While they're scrounging treats, Mr. Bleakman is having a giant cookie wheeled in. He baked the entire thing himself and is planning to keep it hidden under a tent for unveiling later in the day. Once it's taken care of, he heads off with Mrs. Bleakman to check out the amusements. Mrs. Bleakman wonders if someone shouldn't stay and watch it, but Mr. Bleakman figures it should be all right. Clifford, Mac and T-Bone soon smell the cookie. They head in the direction of the smell, leading to the tent. The head inside and see the cookie. Clifford notes that it's Clifford sized. T-Bone and Cleo note that it's neither on the ground nor headed that way though, so it's not okay for them to eat. They begin to leave, but they have to force Clifford out of the tent. They go off to play frisbee, but Clifford's mind isn't really on the game. He's still thinking about the cookie. He figures maybe that if he could just have a lick of it, then maybe he wouldn't want to eat it. Next thing, he's bounding for the cookie. And then, he ends up breaking off a piece off the top. With it now on the ground, Cleo and T-Bone claim it, sharing with Clifford of course. Clifford then suggests that if they ate around the edge of the cookie, no one would notice that anything happened to it. So they do so, but by the time they're done, there's barely any of it left. Worse, Clifford still thinks it looks lopsided. Finally, they end up consuming the entire thing. When Mr. Bleakman has the cookie revealed, everyone's surprised to see not the cookie, but Clifford, T-Bone and Cleo. Mr. Bleakman's obviously upset that Clifford ate his cookie, but Mrs. Bleakman suggests that it really wasn't Clifford's fault. Mr. Bleakman made such a great cookie that Clifford simply couldn't resist the temptation. Mr. Bleakman realizes that he shouldn't have left such a temptation around for such a big dog to eat.
Jetta receives a letter from her pen-pal Monique from the mainland. Her mother's coming over on a business trip on Tuesday and she's taking Monique along with her. This is great news, as Jetta will be able to meet Monqiue and spend a few hours with her. Elsewhere on the island, Emily Elizabeth, Vaz and Mary are making kites. Jetta comes by them. She's carrying a bag of groceries. She explains about Monique coming over. She also explains about how she's scheduled their day. We see that she's even gotten a timer to keep track of time. The timer is quite loud and its noise seems to give everyone a shock, including Clifford, who twists his ears in annoyance. Jetta babbles on about how she's even prepared a picnic lunch for Monique by herself, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, Monique's favorite. No one seems too impressed with Jetta's schedule idea. The next day, Jetta meets Monique as she arrives on the ferry. They greet each other and start to head off for Jetta's first planned activity, collecting seashells at the beach. Then Monique sees Clifford. She's at first scared of him until Jetta explains that it's just Clifford. Emily Elizabeth comes along and chats with Monique a bit. This annoys Jetta, as they're starting to get off schedule. Emily Elizabeth suggests that they ride Clifford to the beach. They do this and Jetta's pleased, as it seems to have gotten them back on schedule. However, at the beach, Vaz and Charley are also there. They tell Jetta that there don't really seem to be any seashells around to collect. Jetta sugests that perhaps they just aren't looking in the right places. But to Jetta's frustration, they seem to be right. There are no seashells to be found anywhere on the beach. So instead, they end up getting into a splash fight with Vaz and Charley. This is fun at first, until Jetta realizes that her timer and the lunch she prepared for Monique have ended up in the water. She manages to salvage the timer, but the lunch is ruined. So Charley suggests they have fish and chips Jamaican style at his Dad's restaurant. They do so. Monique enjoys her lunch, saying that the peanut butter and banana sandwiches would have been okay, but the fish and chips are great. She doesn't have long to enjoy her lunch however as Jetta is soon dragging her (literally, by the arm) to her next scheduled activity: bike-riding. There's just one problem, it turns out her bike has a flat-tire. Worse, a bird picks up her timer and then drops it on the ground, breaking it. Monique doesn't really care about any of this though. She sees somebody flying a kite. It's Emily Elizabeth and friends, flying the kites they made the day before. Jetta's reluctant, kite-flying isn't on the schedule. But Monique runs off anyone and Jetta decides to go ahead. They enjoy their time kite-flying and without the timer, they lose track of time. It gets to be almost 4:00, the time when Monique's supposed to take the ferry home. They'll never make it in time... unless they take the "Clifford Express." They do so, and Monique makes her ferry. She thanks Jetta for a great day. It doesn't matter that it didn't go as Jetta scheduled it, she just enjoyed spending it with Jetta.moreless
Charley's just gotten out of a karate class and he, Jetta, Emily Elizabeth and Vaz are discussing what they want to be when they grow up. Charley admires his karate instructor and wants to be one himself someday. Jetta doesn't seem to think much of this. Vaz says that he wants to be a superhero when he grows up. He fantasizes himself flying around in outer space. Jetta wants to be the President of the United States. She fantasizes giving a big speech and creating new holidays and inviting people to her own private party where they can take pictures of her. Sometime later on, Emily Elizabeth is in her backyard with Clifford. She's dressed in a veterinarian's uniform and takes Clifford's pulse and then listens to his heartbeat. Jetta drops by and Emily Elizabeth tells her that she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up, just like Dr. Dihn. Jetta says that she wants to be a doctor too. Emily Elizabeth stops her - didn't she want to be President? She does, but that job only lasts eight years at the most. T-Bone and Cleo drop by too. They see some tape that Emily Elizabeth wrapped around Clifford and think that he's sick. Clifford stops them and tells how he and Emily Elizabeth were just playing veterinarian. They take the opportunity to consider what they want to be when they grow up. T-Bone imagines being a dog food tester. He tries several samples and gives a green light for go ahead and the sequence ends when he gets to one which he gives a red light to. Cleo says that she wants to be the first dog who's also a doctor and wraps T-Bone with tape as a demonstration. Clifford fantasizes being a firehouse dog. In another scene, we see Vaz taking a picture of Charley doing a karate stance. Vaz says that he's changed what he wants to do when he grows up; he now wants to a be photographer. He says that's easier than being a superhero. Jetta tells Vaz that she wants to be a fashion model when she grows up. Vaz says that he thought she wanted to be President. Emily Elizabeth calls her on this too, she thought she was going to be a doctor. Jetta says that she'll be a doctor who's a part-time fashion model, after she gets done being president. Charley talks about how he wants to be a martial arts instructor again and Jetta tries to shoot him down. She says she thinks he's just wasting his time, karate is just fun, it's not a job. Charley begs to differ and to prove his point, he invites her to be a guest at his next karate class. Emily Elizabeth and Vaz join in too. They all go to the next class and Jetta realizes that karate isn't just fun, it's a lot of hard-work and discipline. She thinks maybe she could be a karate master too. Clifford gongs the bell to end the episode.
"Not Now I'm Busy"
Clifford, T-Bone and Cleo are playing "Super T-Bone" at the docks. T-Bone is "Super T-Bone" and he's telling Cleo about how he's going to foil her evil scheme. Well, he's trying to, but everytime either he or Cleo try to say anything, they get interrupted by the horn of the ferry. They decide to wait until after the ferry comes in to continue playing. The passengers get off the ferry and one of them is K.C. He runs over to greet Cleo, Clifford and T-Bone. However, he tells them that he's too busy to play, he has a job to do and goes back over to his owner Bruno's Mom, Mrs. Young. Cleo, Clifford and T-Bone all wonder what job it is that K.C. could be doing. T-Bone thinks that maybe he's a superhero like Super T-Bone, only real. The next day, Clifford, Cleo and T-Bone are playing "Red Light, Green Light." T-Bone's the light and he yells Red Light, but Cleo notices something and runs off. T-Bone threatens her with a ticket, but then goes chasing after her, and finally Clifford decides to go chasing after the both of them. It turns out Cleo saw K.C. and she wants him to play with them, but he's busy with his job. Cleo's annoyed, can his job be more important than playing with them? He's wearing some sort of cape, lending to T-Bone's idea that he could be a superhero. Cleo decides to trail him and has Clifford and T-Bone join in. They observe him at the supermarket and at the park. This doesn't really reveal much and Clifford and T-Bone still think he could be a superhero. Clifford decides that they should just go and ask K.C. what his job is. They do so, but not before Cleo has it out with him. K.C. says that he really was to busy to play with them. Bruno had him trained as an assistance dog and now he helps out Mrs. Young. He demonstrates - Mrs. Young asks him to get a glass of water and he goes into the kitchen and does so. Cleo apologizes. K.C. says that the good thing is that he'll be on Birdwell Island full-time now, so he'll be able to see them more often. However, he can only play with them when it doesn't get in the way of his job. Cleo, Clifford and T-Bone like the assistance dog idea and ask if they could possibly be assistance dogs too. K.C. says they would have to go to the special school, but he can show them one thing they can do. He shows them - helping their owners at the store. We see all of them helping in various ways. T-Bone has some groceries in tow and Mrs. Diller thanks Cleo for guarding her groceries.moreless
