"Clifford's Carnival"

Scene opens with T-Bone and Cleo playing slide on Clifford. Suddenly, they spot a big giant head floating near the schoolhouse. Fearing that a giant is attacking the school, Clifford rushes over... Only to it's actually a balloon head that Emily, Charley and Jetta's supposed to be inflating for the Fall Carnival. Except that Jetta's not doing any work and bossing Emily and Charley around. Clifford inflates the balloon, and Charley gets Jetta to tie the balloon up. She does, but the knot comes undone and the ballon flies around and ends up flat on Jetta's face. Next, Jetta bosses them around some more. They have to move a basket of pumpkins above a sign. Clifford comes to the rescue again. Finally, they have to clean up a carousel. Jetta makes Emily wash the animals and Charley dry them. Charley tries to get Jetta to do the work, but she refuses. No surprise on what happens next: Clifford comes along and cleans the carousel for them. Jetta, taking advantage of the situation, forces Clifford to work faster. She rightfully gets what she deserves when soap suds from the carousel spashes all over her. She then cleans up using Clifford's tongue, thinking that it's a towel (oh boy, if Clifford gets sick, Jetta'll be in big trouble). She then blames Emily. In steps Mr. Rodriguez, promising them a big ice-cream treat if the carnival's successful. Clifford imagines a ice-cream sundae that's 10 times bigger than him. Fast forward to the evening. We see the carnival in full swing. Everybody's having fun, even the dogs. Scene changes over to Jetta. She's about to go on the Ferris wheel when Mr. Rodriguez pulls her aside and asks her to usher the tractor that he has rented for the hay ride over to the pumpkin patch when it arrives. Apparently, he's been watching her all afternoon and notes that she wasn't doing anything. Jetta reluctantly agrees and go over to the gate. But after a while, she runs off. Shortly after she does, the tractor arrives. The scene then alternates between Jetta on the Ferris wheel and the owner of the tractor waiting outside, and repeats until the owner finally tires of waiting and leaves. Turns out that Jetta has been on the wheel 15 times! We cut to the pumpkin patch. The tractor was supposed to be there an hour ago. He questions Jetta. He's upset and was about to cancel it - until Emily gets the idea of making Clifford the tractor. Jetta also gives in and dusts the hay off those who've rode the ride. Finally, the carnival is a success, and everyone gets an ice-cream. Including Clifford, who gets a huge one. Clifford licking the ice-cream off his face.

"Clifford's Doggy Reunion"

Scene opens with Clifford waiting at the docks. Victor thinks that the Ferry's running late, but Pedro thinks otherwise. Turns out that Emily's waiting for her cousin Laura, and Rex - Cousin Laura's dog. Emily jokes about Rex being bigger than Clifford, and that gets Victor and Pedro worried. We then cut over to the ferry. Laura's looking at Rex through a pair of binoculars. She comments on how big Rex is and says that Emily writes that Clifford has grown. Flashback sequence: When Clifford was still a small red puppy, Rex used to swing Clifford around. In this particular flashback, Little Clifford is swung into a drinking bowl. He then squirts Rex with water. Laura then wonders aloud if Clifford ever outgrown that. Her answer is promptly answered when Clifford swims over to the ferry and helps push it over to the dock so that it's on schedule. A reunion ensues. Turns out that the binoculars are a present to Emily. Laura also knitted a sweater for Clifford, but apparently she wasn't aware that Clifford's now really huge. Later, we see Emily playing in the water. She invites Laura over, but Laura somewhar prefers drawing in the sand. Meanwhile, Rex races with Clifford, and loses (no surprise to us, but a big one to Rex, who won the last time. But Clifford wasn't 2-storey tall back then). Meanwhile, Emily wants to play catch with Laura at the park, then show her the climbing tree in her backyard. But Laura doesn't appear interested - instead, she's looking at the stickers onm display outside the Sea Shell. Emily looks through the binoculars and see Clifford and Rex playing catch. Another flashback ensues and we see Little Clifford getting squished by the frisbee. Cut back to the present. Clifford throws the frisbee, but his strength causes the frisbee to fly in at an unimaginable speed. Rex ducks it, then narrowly avoids it by getting jumping a tree. Scene cuts back to Emily and Laura. We see Laura organize her scrapbook, which is full of bird stickers. Emily invites Laura to climb the tree but Laura refuses. Scene cuts back to Clifford and Rex. Rex asks Clifford if he still remembers back when Rex always swing Clifford on a rope. Clifford replies that he's too big now, but offers to swing Rex instead. Rex accepts, and Clifford starts swinging Rex around, and throws him into a pond. Emily then calls Clifford over and tells him that he's too big to roughhouse like that anymore. She suggests that they find something that they can both do and like. She then realizes that she wasn't a good host to Laura, either. So, they make up. Laura then explains that she likes birds. Emily explains that she has a camera and that they could make their own stickers. Laura like the idea and they run off to get the camera. Meanwhile, Rex and Clifford realizes that they can't play the game they're used to and decides to try something new. Later, at night, Emily ponders over how much Laura and her has changed.moreless
