"Come Back, Mac"

Jetta has lost her sweater and can't seem to find it anywhere. Emily Elizabeth comes over and asks if she can help. So they go hunting for it. Jetta wants Mac to come with them and so she calls for him. When he doesn't come right away, she says that she has a tummy-yummy, as this always gets Mac to come. But this time, Mac doesn't come. We see him, with Jetta's ruined sweater. Now we know why he's not coming. Jetta laments that first she lost her sweater and now she's lost her dog. Emily Elizabeth and Jetta go to search for Mac and Clifford decides to hunt for him too. He's soon accompanied by Cleo and T-Bone. They eventually find him, hiding under a bush. They see the ruined sweater and realize why he's hiding. Mac explains: he didn't mean to ruin the sweater, it was an accident. But now Jetta is going to be mad at him and he doesn't want to face her. Clifford, Cleo and T-Bone tell Mac that they don't think Jetta's going to be all that mad with him. She really misses him and is heartbroken that he's disappeared. So Mac finally returns home, although at first he tries to run away. Emily Elizabeth and Jetta, having not found Mac during their search, decide to return home. Maybe Mac returned while they were away. Jetta's pleased to find Mac is home. Mac shows Jetta the ruined shirt and she's a bit upset, but mostly she's just glad that Mac is back. And not only that, but this gives her an excuse to go shopping for a new shirt. Emily Elizabeth tells Clifford that he should never run away either. There's nothing he could ever do that would make her stop loving him.

"Boo"

It's Halloween on Birdwell Island and everyone's getting dressed up for the festivities. Emily Elizabeth is dressed as a caveman and she's dressed Clifford up as a lion. Mrs. Diller's gotten dressed up too and she's dressed up Cleo as well. She tells Jetta that Mac has a cute outfit. Jetta complains that it's not cute, it's scary. He's Frankenstein's monster. The festivities for the evening include a movie and an outdoor picnic. However, Jetta can't really seem to get into the festivities. The movie, which is being presented courtesy of Victor and Pedro is a standard B-list scary movie, with the requisite scene where a lady opens a closet door, finds that there's no ghost and is relieved, only to then find that the ghost is behind her. After the movie, Clifford hangs around, trying to figure out how everyone was fit into the small projection screen. At the picnic area, Jetta says that she's going to go home. She and Mac are getting really bored and they're just not getting scared. So Victor and Pedro offer to escort her back home. Back at the theater area, a wind causes the large, white projection screen to fly into Clifford, draping over him and making him look like a ghost. It's covering his eyes and so he can't see, so he heads towards the picnic area, trying to figure out what's going on. Jetta, Mac, Victor and Pedro see him on the way to Jetta's house and think that he's the "Ghost of Birdwell Island." They race back to the campsite, creating a mass panic. Only Emily Elizabeth remains calm and as Clifford comes closer, she soon realizes that it's him. Jetta is forced to admit that she and Mac actually got kind of scared. So maybe it wasn't such a bad Halloween after all. Emily Elizabeth says that next year, she's going to dress Clifford up as a ghost to avoid this problem. He'll be Clifford, her "big, white ghost."moreless
