    Clifford the Big Red Dog

    Clifford the Big Red Dog

    Follow
    PBS (ended 2003)
    Clifford the Big Red Dog is a fun show aimed towards younger audiences. Clifford, a 20 foot tall red dog, plays with his dog friends, Cleo and T-Bone, and has great adventures with them. Clifford's best friend, however, is Emily Elizabeth Howard, his owner. Emily has friends of her own and all the characters live peacefully on Birdwell Island. Each Clifford the Big Red Dog episode consists of two stories, linked by a "Speckle Story," a story read to Clifford by Emily Elizabeth about the adventures of a dog named Speckle. At the end of each episode is a "big idea" presented by Clifford, followed by a short promotional spot for one of the characters on Clifford. Please note that some online guides list two big ideas for each episode. The "big idea" listed in this guide will always be only the one that actually airs at the end of the episode itself. Also included is a short segment featuring a real kid with his/her dog. However, most, if not all, PBS stations no longer show this segment. These segments are available for viewing on Clifford DVDs. Production of Clifford The Big Red Dog officially ended when John Ritter returned to ABC primetime in the fall of 2002, as the star of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. The final seven Clifford the Big Red Dog shows aired on PBS in February 2003, and the production of episodes was discontinued to make way for the spinoff show, described below. However, there are indications that some produced episodes haven't yet aired, so keep an eye out! Brach's recently announced a special mail-order video and there could be more coming. With John Ritter's unfortunate passing the following September, there are no plans for new production. Repeats continue on every weekday except Wednesday on most PBS stations. There is also a movie, "Clifford's Really Big Movie", which is now out on DVD and video. Clifford the Big Red Dog is so popular that it now has a spinoff! Watch Clifford's Puppy Days Wednesdays in the normal Clifford the Big Red Dog timeslot on PBS.moreless

    When twentieth-century scientists Dr. C. and Mike thawed a mammoth they found frozen into a glacier, they didn't expect him to wake up. But Phil proved articulate, intelligent, and full of stories about his life in prehistoric Woolyville. Each episode begins with him being inspired by some event in his modern life to relate a tale from the past, featuring the adventures of Cro (a cro magnon boy adopted by neanderthals) and his mammoth friends. Every story revolves around some concept in physics that Cro discovered through trial and error and which is being applied Phil's new friends to their modern problems. The show was produced by Children's Television Workshop (The people who did Sesame Street), And it was also the first fully animated series to air on PBS Kids. Then it was reran on Noggin, Then PBS Kids Sprout. No doubt the show will rerun on HBO Family.moreless

    Comedy Central (ended 2003)
    Jiminy Glick was born in 1948, in Akron, Ohio, the youngest of eleven children born to Omar and Isabella Glickman. Sickly as a child, Jiminy had to be privately tutored until the age of thirteen, when doctors discovered his "ailment" was merely the result of a swallowed Tonka truck that had lodged in his duodenum. After graduating from Gale Gordon High School, he enrolled at the prestigious DeVry Institute of Technology, but left after the first semester when he won the role of Onlooker #2 in a bus-and-truck theater production of "Forty Karats," starring Miss Lana Turner. By the time he was thirty, Glick had grown confident enough to move out of his parents' house and pursue a career in acting. Hollywood was beckoning and Jiminy answered the call. Sure enough, he landed a job as a bus boy at Chasen's, where he stayed for the next eight years. He worked only occasionally as an actor, most notably as Buddy Ebsen's kleptomaniac nephew in a "Barnaby Jones" two-parter. Despite a series of mixed reviews, Glick found acting jobs few and far between and was ultimately forced to take a position as personal assistant to the legendary Charles "Death Wish" Bronson. He remained in that lofty capacity for five turbulent years. Then, in 1991, while moonlighting as a bartender's assistant at Roddy McDowell's traditional "People's Choice Award" after-party, he befriended former "Laugh-In" producer George Schlatter. As luck would have it, Schlatter was looking for a host for his new syndicated celebrity interview show, "LalaWood." Glick got the nod and, after two short years, "LalaWood" rocketed into the top 100. "Thank God he's a man and he's so fat or I'd be worried about my job. He's that good!" - Barbara Walters Glick now lives in Tarzana, with his wife of twenty-three years, Dixie, and their four sons: Morgan, Mason, Matthew and Modine. When he's not hosting his current show, "Prime-time Glick," you'll most likely find Jiminy coaching his sons' little league team, rebuilding the engine of one of his classic cars or browsing for antiques. Martin Short plays Glick. Glick will try to interview celebrity guests, hoping to remember their names... Jiminy Glick is a spin-off of The Martin Short Show (1999)moreless

    Since 1988, PBS has broadcast a series that focuses on the history of the United States and what has made it unique. Called American Experience (originally titled The American Experience), the program examines the people, events, technology, and natural resources that have shaped the country. Hosted by David McCullough until 2002 and narrated by a number of well-known personalities - American Experience uses historians and authors, period images and film, music, dramatic re-enactments, and contemporary context to set the stage for its topics.

    The series continues to this day with a variable number of installments produced each year. Episodes are generally 60 minutes in length, but some longer episodes and multi-part series have also been produced. The show airs at different days and times on local PBS stations.

    Though American Experience has used many films from independent film makers and has been assisted by various PBS stations throughout the country, it has always been spearheaded by WGBH in Boston.moreless

    Welcome to the ¿Qué Pasa, U.S.A.? guide at TV.com. ¿Qué Pasa, USA? was and still is America's first bilingual situation comedy. The program explored the trials and tribulations faced by a Cuban family, named Peña,in Miami as they struggled to cope with a new country and a new language. The series focused on the identity crisis of the teenage members of the family as they are pulled in one direction by their elders who want to maintain Cuban values and traditions - and pulled in other directions by the pressures of living in a predominantly Anglo society. The series is bilingual, reflecting the mix of language often heard in Cuban-American neighborhoods from Spanish in the home and English at the supermarket to the inevitable combining of both into "Spanglish."moreless
