"Fan Mail"

Emily Elizabeth, Jetta, Charley and Vaz are watching a concert of pop star Courtney Amber. Outside, Clifford, Cleo and T-Bone are maneuvering to try to get a good view. After the concert ends, everyone agrees that Courtney Amber is the best. Emily Elizabeth likes her so much, she thinks that she'll write her a letter. Who knows, maybe she'll write back within a week or two. Jetta doesn't think so. She doesn't think that Courtney Amber has time to be answering letters. Emily Elizabeth is probably just wasting her time. Emily Elizabeth tells her that she's going to try anyway. She'll never know unless she tries. Later on, Emily Elizabeth is in Clifford's doghouse, reading the letter to Clifford. It's all very laudatory and it even invites her to come to Birdwell Island. If she wants to find Emily Elizabeth, she can just look for the big, red dog. She goes to mail it. When she tries to mail it, a stiff wind ends up blowing it away. Emily Elizabeth and Clifford go to a lot of trouble to retrieve it, until Jetta comes along and manages to grab it before it can fly away again. Emily Elizabeth tells her what it is and mentions that she invited Courtney Amber to come to Birdwell Island. Jetta just laughs at it. There's no way Courtney Amber would come to Birdwell Island. She convinces Emily Elizabeth of that too. No longer thinking the letter is such a good idea, Emily Elizabeth gives Clifford the letter to get rid of. Clifford tries to bury it in the yard, but his digging keeps getting dirt on Mr. Bleakman. Mr. Bleakman, annoyed, asks Clifford what he's burying. So Clifford shows him the letter to Courtney Amber. Mr. Bleakman's puzzled as to why Clifford would be burying it. Then, Jetta comes by, talking to herself about how disappointed Emily Elizabeth is going to be. He realizes that it's Jetta's doing. Sometime in the future, Emily Elizabeth, Charley, Vaz and Jetta meet Mr. Bleakman down by the docks. Mr. Bleakman tells them that his niece is coming and he wants them to show her around town. Jetta, apparently thinking this sounds boring, makes an excuse and leaves. The boat unloads it's passengers and Mr. Bleakman introduces his niece: Courtney Amber! He sent the letter for Emily Elizabeth and so Courtney Amber is pleased to meet her. Later on, the gang is riding on Clifford's back when they encounter Jetta. They have her meet Courtney Amber and she faints. Back at Emily Elizabeth's, the entire group dances to Courtney Amber's song that they were listening to on the concert before. Jetta apologizes for telling Emily Elizabeth not to mail the letter. She then asks if Emily Elizabeth thinks Courtney Amber would give her an autograph. Emily Elizabeth tells her that she'll never know unless she tries.

"Hooray for Cleo"

There's a beach volleyball game going on with a bunch of the neighborhood dogs. Cleo, Clifford, T-Bone and Mac are all there, as well as dogs named Al and Tonya, as well as many unnamed dogs. The dog named Al is having a great time giving a play-by-play commentary of the game, but it's also causing a problem for his team, as he's trying to give the commetary while playing the game. The score is tied when Cleo makes an amazing shot, giving the win to Clifford's team. However, the camera shows that the ball bounced before Cleo made the play. Everyone comes over to congratulate Cleo on the great play. Mac protests, saying that he thought he saw the ball bounce. Cleo tries to agree, but everyone cuts her off, saying what a great play it was. That night, Cleo is haunted by a nightmare in which Al gives his running commentary, but his time plays back her play in slow-motion and sees that the ball bounced. She wakes up and decides that she should tell everyone the truth. But when she gets to the game, everyone cuts her off again before she can say anything. Since she's such a great volleyball player, they want her to teach them some of her moves. Cleo decides to go along, telling them that anyone can be a great player if they practice. But everytime she tries to show them a shot, even shots that she normally does well, she messes them up. Finally, she has to admit that the ball bounced the day before. She wanted to tell them, but it just kept getting harder and harder. She decides to try it again and this time she actually does make the shot and without the ball bouncing.moreless
