About Clifford the Big Red Dog

Clifford the Big Red Dog is an eponymously titled American children's book series about a big red dog named Clifford. It was first published in 1963 and was written by Norman Bridwell. The series helped establish Scholastic Books as a premier publishing company. Clifford was the runt of a litter of puppies and was chosen by a city child named Emily Elizabeth as her birthday present. No one expected him to grow, but Emily's love for her tiny red puppy changed him dramatically. Before long, he was over 25 feet (7.6 m) tall, forcing the Howard family to leave the city and move to the open spaces of Birdwell Island. In 1988, Nelvana, Wang Film Productions, and Family Home Entertainment released 'Clifford's Fun With...', a videotape series with the theme song by Phillip Namanworth and Benjamin Goldstein. Brent Titcomb voiced Clifford, but sounded almost similar to Disney's Goofy. Lorimar Productions released the video 'Clifford's Sing Along Adventure' around that same time.
