Clifford's Puppy Days

Clifford the Big Red Dog is an animated children's television series which is a reboot to the book series of the same name written by Norman Bridwell, and the 2000 original series created by Deborah Forte and produced by Mike Young Productions, and is the third series in the franchise after the prequel spin-off Clifford's Puppy Days, which was also produced by Mike Young Productions.

In addition to being a reboot, it is also a sequel, because PBS lists it as being the third season.[2] [3] Clifford is voiced by Adam Sanders, replacing John Ritter in the role since the latter's death in 2003.

It was released on December 6, 2019, on Amazon Prime Video, and premiered a day later on PBS Kids.[4][5] Unlike the original TV series, the reboot has not yet aired in the UK, and it is unknown whether or not it will be dubbed for the British audiences if it ever premieres in the UK. The second part of season 1 was released on February 7, 2020.[6] The executive producers of the show include Jennifer Oxley, best known for co-creating Peg + Cat, and Vince Commisso of 9 Story Media Group.

The series revolves around Emily Elizabeth Howard, a young girl who owns Clifford, a big red dog who can speak to her for the first time since the late 1980s-early 1990s direct-to-video series.[7] Together the two friends explore their island home, Birdwell Island, and embark on adventures.

Production

A reboot of Clifford the Big Red Dog was announced on May 16, 2018, by Scholastic, and released in late 2019.[11] Scholastic and 100 Chickens Productions in the United States, and 9 Story Media Group in Canada produce the series.[1][12][13]

On November 22, 2019, the theme song and a sneak peek clip of an episode were released.[7]

In preparing for the role of the voice of Clifford, Adam Sanders stated that he watched episodes of the 2000s television series and studied John Ritter's performance as Clifford, stating that Ritter portrayed the character as very optimistic, very youthful and compassionate.[14]

Episodes

The first season of the series is slated to have 39 22-minute episodes.[1][5]
