Clifford overhears Mr. Bleakman say that feeding him must cost a lot of money. A carnival act called "Larry's Amazing Animals" has just been in town, and the animals in the show told Clifford about an animal contest with a prize of a lifetime supply of Tummy Yummies. So he decides to run away along with Cleo and T-Bone, join the carnival act, win the contest, and bring the food back. Soon Clifford is the star of the show, and Shackleford the ferret, who'd always been the star, gets jealous. Clifford just wants to help and win the contest -- but getting back home to Emily Elizabeth may not be as easy as he thinks, even after the contest is over.Written by
An animated adventure about a gigantic red dog named Clifford who joins a circus troupe after he mistakenly thinks his owners cannot afford his upkeep. Together with his animal and human friends he participates in a talent show, but the result is not what they had wished for.
Basically the characters are cute and likable, even if the animation is nothing spectacular. The story never gets very ambitious either: all the problems Clifford and Co. encounter just dissolve away without much effort. Not surprisingly, the importance of friendship is one of the main themes. Not much to see for adults, but young kids may be entertained.
