* KarmaHoudini: In one episode, Cleo gets a new playground assembled in her backyard and Mac insists on being the first to play on it, spending the episode conning his way onto it at the expense of T-Bone and Clifford. Eventually Cleo sprains her paw while playing and Mac doesn't care enough to help her inside, leaving her to fend for herself. Cleo realizes his deceit, but Mac is never forced to answer for it in any meaningful way.

* SmallNameBigEgo: Jetta Handover, who is constantly seeking to be the center of attention. Prominent examples include when she initially tried to hog the spotlight at her baby brother's own arrival party and when she nominated ''herself'' for Islander of the Year. Suffice to say, her efforts usually leave her humbled in some way.

In May 2012, it was [[http://news.moviefone.com/2012/05/09/clifford-the-big-red-dog-movie_n_1502519.html?_r=true announced]] that Illumination and Universal are working together to create a new ''Clifford'' movie, which will be based on the original book, but won't apparently have anything to do with the television series. The film, which is stated to be a blend of live-action and animation, will be penned by Matt Lopez (''Film/TheSorcerersApprentice''). Clifford celebrated his fiftieth anniversary in 2013.

In the 80s, {{Nelvana}} picked up the rights to the series and spun off six half-hour direct to video specials with it. Starring Creator/AlysonCourt opposite BrentTitcomb, each specials featured a typical slice-of-life storyline peppered with two songs, and was animated with NoFourthWall, allowing Emily and Clifford to "converse" directly with the viewers, but strangely Emily and Clifford could never converse among themselves in English, as to leverage on Scholastic's then-recent study that children learned better through participation rather than through repetition. After that, the franchise reverted to books (unless you count in the discontinuity that is the live-action mixed footage direct to video special by Warner Home Video that was released in the early 90s). This went on until the year 2000. Scholastic wanted to do another animated adaptation. Throwing away the old format and rebooting the continuity, it now featured Music/GreyDeLisle as Emily Elizabeth, opposite Creator/JohnRitter as Clifford. The new version was such a phenomenal success that it ran for two seasons, spun off [[TheMovie a movie]], and even resulted in a licensed [[TheKiddieRide kiddie ride]]. Things weren't so rosy after the movie, however. John Ritter passed on shortly after of a heart attack on the set of ''Series/EightSimpleRules''. While Scholastic had been pondering upon the idea of a sequel for a while, the death of Mr. Ritter cemented the decision on a spinoff, titled ''Clifford's Puppy Days''. Two seasons were made before Scholastic decided to take a break from making a series out of the franchise again, while maintaining the series franchise. The books are still coming, as are merchandise.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Shreiff Lewis doesn't seem to do any police work. It would seem that Birdwell Island is a peaceful, law-abiding place and there are no crooks or crime. There's even an empty jail cell.
