Fun Episodes About Clifford the Big Red Dog with Good Special Features

Pros: Great special features, especially the Big Ideas

Cons: The Who's Who Game does not read the questions aloud

The Bottom Line: Good show for young kids and great special features to go with it on this DVD.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

This DVD contains two sets of Clifford episodes for a total of eight episodes. Clifford is a fun show for kids around ages 3 to 6 to enjoy. The show features Clifford the Big Red dog often playing with his other dog friends. It also features him and his owner Emily Elizabeth and her friends. The show often has some meaningful message in it, such as conserving energy in “Lights Out” and enjoying nature in “Camping it Up.” Overall though it is just a fun show with the fun, crazy, and bad things that happen with a friendly big red dog around.

This DVD has two sections of episodes. The first is Big Fun in the Sun. The episodes here are “Camping it Up” about going on a camping outing and learning to enjoy nature, “Hooray for Cleo” about Cleo teaching others to play beach volleyball and admit that she is not always perfect, “Home is Where the Fun Is” about Clifford showing Emily Elizabeth that there are plenty of entertaining things on the island that are better than or just as fun as seeing the big tower in the city, and “Lights Out” about a power outage and the town learning that there are things to do without using electricity.

The second section of episodes is Look Out, Clifford. The episodes in this section are “Clifford’s Charm School” about Clifford’s dog friends trying to teach him to be more elegant in order to not ruin the neighbor’s party, “Best Paw Forward” about the kids and dogs making prints in the sidewalk and Clifford’s being too big to be safely part of the sidewalk, “Clifford’s Hiccups” about Clifford having the hiccups and his friends trying to help him get rid of them, and “An Itchy Patch” about Clifford trying to stop itching to avoid having to go to the vet.

This DVD has some good special features. The first section is Clifford’s Big Ideas. The first big idea is about playing fair and shows a clip about Clifford and his dog friends playing red light green light and has a message about learning to play fair including some activities for kids to do. The other big ideas are about believing in yourself and helping others. These are great interactive ideas for things to do after watching the clip.

Another special feature is a Who’s Who Game. In the game it asks questions about who did something and all can be answered easily if all the episodes have been watched on this DVD. The only issue I have with this game is that it does not read the questions allowed, which I found odd because on the menus it often talks telling you what to do as if it is assuming kids are navigating the menus. Thus why does not it continue to assume that the audience cannot read, which I think some fans of Clifford cannot yet do.

The last special feature is called Real Life Doggie Friends. This is a video clip about real kids doing an activity making dog books. It also shows clips about different dogs including a dog helping an artist make art and a guide dog.
