Created in 1963 by author Norman Bridwell Clifford the Big Red Dog has been entertaining children and their families for 50 years. With dozens and dozens of books detailing the adventures of Clifford and his owner, Emily Elizabeth, and their friends, plus a long-running animated television series on PBS it is easy to see why Clifford is one of the most cherished preschool characters ever created.
The Celebrate with Clifford (compare prices) DVD marks 50 years of big red fun. The DVD features seven animated stories about Clifford and his friends, Emily Elizabeth, Charley, Jetta and T-Bone, as they go to the Fall Carnival, build a float in a parade, and pick out a gift for a birthday party.
