Clifford the Big Red Dog

Show Summary

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.

    This show teaches many good lessons like being kind, fair and friendship. It is for younger kids and I still sort of like it. These episodes are well written and relatable. This show is heartwarming, the characters are lovable, and it is a great show for younger kids!

    Clifford was one of the shows I always enjoyed. (Whoever dislikes the show based on the dog's size, you should stop looking to children's cartoons for accuracy on the world.) He's a big, lovable dog with a loving owner, a young girl named Emily, and his slightly-goofy friends, Cleo (a spoiled poodle) and T-Bone, a meek and clumsy bulldog. The episodes teach all kinds of great lessons - sharing, telling the truth, obedience, trying your best, and never giving up, as well as being nice to everyone.



    The drawing is great, and the plots are wonderful - always exciting and fun and even funny sometimes. I can relate to many of the characters and situations they end up in, and their personalities and traits are realistic. Their voices suit their characters, and their traits suit their bodies. Clifford, for example, is a gentle and generous giant, while Cleo is bouncy and slightly prissy, while T-Bone is shy, awkward, and usually the one who has to try the hardest to keep up. I think kids (and many adults) can relate well to the characters and their problems, and like me, will root for the characters to work things out in one way or another.



    So, long review short: This show is definitely worth watching!moreless
