"Clifford's Cookie Craving"

It's the day of the Birdwell Island fair. The dogs (Clifford, T-Bone and Cleo) are there and they're hoping to snag some food. Since it's a carnival, there's going to be lots of concessions. They know that it's okay to eat anything that anyone drops on the ground. While they're scrounging treats, Mr. Bleakman is having a giant cookie wheeled in. He baked the entire thing himself and is planning to keep it hidden under a tent for unveiling later in the day. Once it's taken care of, he heads off with Mrs. Bleakman to check out the amusements. Mrs. Bleakman wonders if someone shouldn't stay and watch it, but Mr. Bleakman figures it should be all right. Clifford, Mac and T-Bone soon smell the cookie. They head in the direction of the smell, leading to the tent. The head inside and see the cookie. Clifford notes that it's Clifford sized. T-Bone and Cleo note that it's neither on the ground nor headed that way though, so it's not okay for them to eat. They begin to leave, but they have to force Clifford out of the tent. They go off to play frisbee, but Clifford's mind isn't really on the game. He's still thinking about the cookie. He figures maybe that if he could just have a lick of it, then maybe he wouldn't want to eat it. Next thing, he's bounding for the cookie. And then, he ends up breaking off a piece off the top. With it now on the ground, Cleo and T-Bone claim it, sharing with Clifford of course. Clifford then suggests that if they ate around the edge of the cookie, no one would notice that anything happened to it. So they do so, but by the time they're done, there's barely any of it left. Worse, Clifford still thinks it looks lopsided. Finally, they end up consuming the entire thing. When Mr. Bleakman has the cookie revealed, everyone's surprised to see not the cookie, but Clifford, T-Bone and Cleo. Mr. Bleakman's obviously upset that Clifford ate his cookie, but Mrs. Bleakman suggests that it really wasn't Clifford's fault. Mr. Bleakman made such a great cookie that Clifford simply couldn't resist the temptation. Mr. Bleakman realizes that he shouldn't have left such a temptation around for such a big dog to eat.

"Jetta's Friend"

Jetta receives a letter from her pen-pal Monique from the mainland. Her mother's coming over on a business trip on Tuesday and she's taking Monique along with her. This is great news, as Jetta will be able to meet Monqiue and spend a few hours with her. Elsewhere on the island, Emily Elizabeth, Vaz and Mary are making kites. Jetta comes by them. She's carrying a bag of groceries. She explains about Monique coming over. She also explains about how she's scheduled their day. We see that she's even gotten a timer to keep track of time. The timer is quite loud and its noise seems to give everyone a shock, including Clifford, who twists his ears in annoyance. Jetta babbles on about how she's even prepared a picnic lunch for Monique by herself, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, Monique's favorite. No one seems too impressed with Jetta's schedule idea. The next day, Jetta meets Monique as she arrives on the ferry. They greet each other and start to head off for Jetta's first planned activity, collecting seashells at the beach. Then Monique sees Clifford. She's at first scared of him until Jetta explains that it's just Clifford. Emily Elizabeth comes along and chats with Monique a bit. This annoys Jetta, as they're starting to get off schedule. Emily Elizabeth suggests that they ride Clifford to the beach. They do this and Jetta's pleased, as it seems to have gotten them back on schedule. However, at the beach, Vaz and Charley are also there. They tell Jetta that there don't really seem to be any seashells around to collect. Jetta sugests that perhaps they just aren't looking in the right places. But to Jetta's frustration, they seem to be right. There are no seashells to be found anywhere on the beach. So instead, they end up getting into a splash fight with Vaz and Charley. This is fun at first, until Jetta realizes that her timer and the lunch she prepared for Monique have ended up in the water. She manages to salvage the timer, but the lunch is ruined. So Charley suggests they have fish and chips Jamaican style at his Dad's restaurant. They do so. Monique enjoys her lunch, saying that the peanut butter and banana sandwiches would have been okay, but the fish and chips are great. She doesn't have long to enjoy her lunch however as Jetta is soon dragging her (literally, by the arm) to her next scheduled activity: bike-riding. There's just one problem, it turns out her bike has a flat-tire. Worse, a bird picks up her timer and then drops it on the ground, breaking it. Monique doesn't really care about any of this though. She sees somebody flying a kite. It's Emily Elizabeth and friends, flying the kites they made the day before. Jetta's reluctant, kite-flying isn't on the schedule. But Monique runs off anyone and Jetta decides to go ahead. They enjoy their time kite-flying and without the timer, they lose track of time. It gets to be almost 4:00, the time when Monique's supposed to take the ferry home. They'll never make it in time... unless they take the "Clifford Express." They do so, and Monique makes her ferry. She thanks Jetta for a great day. It doesn't matter that it didn't go as Jetta scheduled it, she just enjoyed spending it with Jetta.moreless
