"A Big Help"

Clifford's a big dog and to a lot of people around the island, he's a big help. His large size is often an advantage in helping people out and T-Bone, noticing this, says that he wishes he could be big like Clifford so he can be helpful too. Clifford, however, says that he doesn't think size has anything to do with being helpful. So T-Bone, along with Cleo, start looking around for ways that they can be helpful. They find Mr. Bleakman and start helping him to pack for a vacation he's going on. He's trying to pack a ton of things, but he just can't seem to fit them all in. Cleo and T-Bone are quite helpful, but then a wind gust causes a bunch of Mr. Bleakman's underwear to blow into a tree. Cleo and T-Bone can't reach, so it's Clifford to save the day. Still, Cleo and T-Bone are happy when Mr. Bleakman says that they helped out. (Even though it seems like he's possibly being sarcastic.) Cleo and T-Bone go in search of more ways to help out. They end up at Cleo's place, where Mrs. Diller has an infestation of crows in her garden. Cleo and T-Bone try to scare them off, but instead, a huge murder of them gathers. Clifford comes and is able to blow them away. T-Bone's beginning to think maybe you really do have to be big to help out. Clifford tells Cleo and T-Bone that he's going down to the beach and wishes them good luck in finding more ways to help out. The two come across kittens Billy and Betty, who are stuck way up in a tree. Their immediate impulse is to go and get Clifford, but he's too far away. So they have to come up with their own plan. By making climbing down into a game, T-Bone and Cleo are able to talk them down. T-Bone realizes that you really don't have to be big to be a big help.

"The Trouble With Kittens"

Clifford is in his yard when he hears the meowing of kittens Billy and Betty. He soon realizes that their presence could be a problem, as they've chosen Mr. Bleakman's yard as their place to play. Worse, they're in his flower garden and Mr. Bleakman doesn't like anyone in his flowers. So Clifford works discreetly to try and get them out. Mr. Bleakman catches him in his yard, but Clifford puts on a show of just smelling the flowers. Mr. Bleakman doesn't seem upset and kindly asks Clifford to leave the yard now, so he can get some work done. Back in his own yard, Clifford tells the kittens that Mr. Bleakman's yard is off-limits for playing and asks them to play in his yard. He figures he'll just have to watch them and make sure they stay put. He watches them from his doghouse and tries to keep a good eye on them, but he can't stay awake and drifts off. While sleeping, he has a dream off them all being on an island and Billy and Betty departing on a raft to go play at Mr. Bleakman's. He wakes up and finds that Cleo and T-Bone have come, but Billy and Betty are nowhere in sight. They're back at Mr. Bleakman's! Things are getting a bit more complicated now, but T-Bone and Cleo are willing to help Clifford to get the mischievous kittens back out of Mr. Bleakman's yard. After a wild chase, they seem to have the two kittens in Clifford's grasp. There's another encounter with Mr. Bleakman and this time, Mr. Bleakman is a bit less kind about asking Clifford to leave. Then... trouble. Although they thought they had Billy and Betty, they've escaped again! The two race through Mr. Bleakman's yard, creating a huge mess of muddy pawprints, turning on a water sprinkler and various other trouble. Then, they end up flying into the pockets of a pair of Mr. Bleakman's pants, hanging on a line. Mr. Bleakman sees Clifford trying to stop the water from the sprinkler. He blames him for the huge mess in the yard. But Mrs. Bleakman objects that Clifford couldn't have caused the mess. She points out a birdseed feeder that's been disturbed, but which Clifford is way, way too large to fit through. She also points out the muddy pawprints - they're very small, way too small to be Clifford's. And finally, she points out Mr. Bleakman's pants and they find the kittens. Mr. Bleakman realizes his error and says that he needs to get the kittens back to where they belong. Afterwards, Mr. Bleakman apologizes to Clifford, saying that he's sorry he blamed him without knowing all the facts. He then presents Clifford with a surprise - a huge stack of tummy yummies... and underneath them, Billy and Betty.moreless
