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 Creator/GreyDeLisle as Emily Elizabeth, opposite Creator/JohnRitter as Clifford, with two new characters added to the leading cast, these being T-Bone (Kel Mitchell) and Cleo (Creator/CreeSummer). 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 being printed, along with merchandise.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: One episode has Mr. Bleakman convincing Sheriff Lewis to ban people from bringing their dogs to the park all because he was fed up that they had disrupted the peace and quiet he desired while watching the birds. It seems highly unlikely that such a radical measure would be enacted on the protests of a single citizen over such petty circumstances, and it would almost certainly take more than the town sheriff to actually approve it.


Added DiffLines:

* ImagineSpot: These very frequently take place, courtesy of Clifford most of the time.


Added DiffLines:

* MotorMouth: One of the other dogs on the island Al, who likes to broadcast their beach ball games while he himself also happens to be playing. This often leads to him being caught unprepared when the ball heads his way.

** Mr. Bleakman becomes so fed up with the dogs interfering with his birdwatching in the park that he actually convinces the sheriff to ''ban all dogs from the park'' just so he can finally have some peace and quiet. Instead nobody comes to the park because they can't enjoy the company of their dogs, forcing Mr. Bleakman to realize that he had been selfish in his actions.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In one episode Charley envies the lives of the dogs so much and wishes he were a dog so that he didn't have all the responsibilities of a human. He gets his wish, only to find that he can't enjoy the things he does as a kid. [[AllJustADream It all turns out to be just a dream]], with Charley now appreciating what he is.



* ImpliedLoveInterest: Mimi and T-Bone

** Another good example is when Clifford volunteers to watch T-Bone's pile of leaves while he's away from the group, intending to jump on them later. Clifford however gives into temptation and takes the jump without T-Bone's permission, resulting in his entire pile being blown away. Clifford resolves to collect every single leaf he can from the pile, as in the ''exact same leaves that have now been blown all across the island'', even rejecting every other leaf he can sense was not from T-Bone's pile. Naturally, Cleo thinks he's being ridiculous, and yet '''somehow''' he manages to pull it off all before T-Bone gets back.

* WeAreNotGoingThroughThatAgain: Jetta's trip to Titanic Tower in the city results in this after she and her mother spent the entire day just trying to get to the darned thing......only for their view of the city to be ruined by clouds and smog. After having earlier rubbed it in Emily's face that she couldn't join them for the trip, Jetta comes back home to Emily (Who thanks to Clifford had a ''much'' better afternoon) to suggest that next time they could go see the tower together. Her mother immediately shoots down the very idea, saying next time they'd just go to the zoo instead.

* ArtEvolution: The movie, titled ''Clifford's Really Big Movie'', actually had a budget. So the animators decided to play around with cell shading. It worked ok for Clifford and the other animals. Unfortunately Emily-Elizabeth and the other regular human characters got dumped somewhere in the UncannyValley.

* PerformanceAnxiety:
** Cleo had this problem in "Limelight Fright", where she wanted to dance in front of a audience. She overcomes this at the end of the episode.
** Mary didn't want to to her piano performance in "Stage Struck" as she is afraid of doing it in front of people. Emily Elizabeth tells that she would perform with her, but this was changed as she was stuck in a magic box when Vaz was trying to find the key. Mary was afraid of doing it by herself, but Emily encourages her that she can do it, and just reminds her that she can by just imagining that there's only Clifford. She gets over it when she gets more confidence.
