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.
