More About Clifford The Big Red Dog

Although still set on Birdwell Island, Clifford The Big Red Dog will offer fresh and colorful new locations.

Clifford games will be available at pbskids.org and on the free PBS KIDS Games App, along with clips and full episodes streaming on PBS KIDS’ video platforms, including the PBS KIDS Video App. Parent resources, including tips and hands-on activities, will be available on the PBS KIDS for Parents site. PBS LearningMedia will also offer classroom-ready materials for teachers.
