Clifford the Big Red Dog is is an American animated series based upon the famous children's book series of the same name. It was produced by Scholastic Studios, and aired on PBS Kids from September 4, 2000 to February 25, 2003. However, the series is still shown on some PBS stations. Clifford also appeared on CBBC.
Clifford was the runt of the litter, and was chosen by a city child named Emily Elizabeth Howard as her birthday present. No one expected Clifford to grow, but Emily Elizabeth's love for her tiny red puppy changed Clifford dramatically. Before long, he was over 25 feet (7.6 m) tall, forcing the Howard family to leave the city and move to the open spaces of Birdwell Island.
