Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford the Big Red Dog makes its return to screens with a big, big makeover this weekend! The new 39 x 22’ series launches Friday, December 6 on Amazon Prime Video, followed by a broadcast debut on PBS KIDS on Saturday, December 7.
Featuring fresh but faithful new designs and larger-than-life adventures, Clifford the Big Red Dog reboots the beloved property created by children’s author Norman Bridwell with an expanded world and a more independent young heroine for today’s audiences. In this series, Clifford and Emily Elizabeth will speak to each other for the first time as they explore and meet new friends on Birdwell Island.
Emphasizing social-emotional skills and a curriculum designed to boost early literacy and encourage imaginative play, the show will also feature original songs to accompany Clifford and Emliy Elizabeth’s adventures.
Clifford the Big Red Dog is produced by Scholastic Entertainment, in collaboration with 100 Chickens and 9 Story Media Group.
The new series will be supported by an expansive licensing and consumer products program and a global publishing program, with new titles launching in 2019.
The live-action hybrid Clifford the Big Red Dog feature film from Paramount Pictures, starring Darby Camp, Jack Whitehall, John Cleese, Sienna Guillory, Kenan Thompson and Rosie Perez, premieres November 13, 2020.
