"Potluck Party Pooper"

It's Saturday, and Emmy is having a potluck party in her backyard. Everybody's excited, well, everybody that is except Mr. Bleakman. Even his wife wants to get in on the fun, but Mr. Bleakman doesn't want to change away from his normal Saturday routine: a nice meal of porkchops, some relaxing painting and then going to bed. Emmy and her friends think that it would be neat for him to try something new, but Mr. Bleakman won't be dissuaded so easily. At the party, there's all sorts of food to try, from all different countries. This includes hot and spicy food, which sends Clifford for a drink of water just from smelling it. Some of it even smells so good, that they think that if Mr. Bleakkman got a whiff of it, there's no way he could resist coming to the party. They use Clifford's ear as a fan, wafting the odor to Mr. Bleakman's yard. He smells it and goes over to find out what it is. He tries it, but still isn't persuaded to join the party. Vaz suggests that maybe Mr. Bleakman is just a bit shy. He says that he's like that at parties at first too, until he starts talking to everybody. After that, he gets into it and has a good time. He puts on a CD of latin dance music. Mr. Bleakman hears the music and even starts dancing over in his yard. However, he catches himself and still won't join the party. At the party, they all start playing party games, including some sort of ringtoss game. One of the rings goes flying into Mr. Bleakman's yard, nearly knocking into his painting, but he manages to save it by catching the ring with his paintbrush. Seems Mr. Bleakman's not too bad at the game, even though he's never played before. He finally joins in, agreeing that sometimes it's fun to try something different.

"The Best Gift"

It's Emily Elizabeth's Mom's birthday, and Emily Elizabeth is ready. She and Charley create a giant card for her, featuring Clifford's pawprint and she's also written her Mom a special poem. She thinks that her Mom is going to love it. Jetta, however, has other ideas. She doesn't figure Emily Elizabeth's Mom will be too impressed with this and despite Emily Elizabeth's protests, states that she knows how to pick out perfect gifts for Mom. She believes she has the perfect idea: matching outfits. Emily Elizabeth doesn't think much of this, but Jetta takes her to a fancy clothing store to put her idea in action. When they get there, though, things go differently than planned. Jetta hates all of the outfits that Emily Elizabeth samples. Emily Elizabeth finally finds one that Jetta likes: it looks just like Jetta's outfit. Clifford whines and Emily Elizabeth says that maybe an outfit isn't the best idea. Jetta isn't giving up yet though. She has a new idea: they'll make Emily Elizabeth's Mom a bottle of perfume. She says that all they have to do is bottle up a lot of good smelling stuff. They get all sorts of good smelling stuff: flowers, chocolate, cinnamon, pine needles, etc. They mix it all together and find that together, it actually smells quite rotten. So much for that idea. Finally, Jetta suggests jewelry. She makes a tiara out of seashells, but Emily Elizabeth doesn't think that her Mom would want to be a queen, she just likes being her Mom. She lets Jetta keep the tiara, as it looks good on her and decides to go with her original plan. This works out nicely, Emily Elizabeth's Mom really enjoys spending time with her and loves her poem. Finally, at the end of the episode, Clifford presents the pawprint card, which has been beautifully decorated since the last time we saw it.moreless
