Clifford the Big Red Dog is as lovable as ever on the latest video and DVD releases in the Scholastic series. Rock N' Roll Clifford and Team Clifford! are available individually on VHS or together on DVD.

 

In Rock N' Roll Clifford!, the dogs want to form a rock ’n’ roll band, and although it initially seems challenging, they find a way to fit all the dogs into the band in a meaningful way. In another episode, Emily Elizabeth attempts to get a response to her fan mail. In Stage Struck, Mary is getting stage fright preparing for the talent show, but Clifford helps out by being her friendly audience. Finally, Embarrassing Moments offers viewers a solution to handling those inevitable awkward moments in life.

 

Team Clifford! features 4 episodes with sports/teamwork themes. The world’s greatest basketball player visits Birdwell Island and offers everyone a lesson in teamwork. In another episode, Emily Elizabeth worries that she is too short to be Clifford’s friend. In Lucky Charm, Emily Elizabeth mistakenly puts her confidence in her lucky charm, but when she loses it, she learns that confidence comes from within. Finally, a lesson about the joys of doing one’s best is offered in The Great Race.

Rock N’ Roll Clifford! and Team Clifford! are available separately on VHS, or together on one value-added DVD. Each contains 4 episodes.

The stories in the Clifford series are tasteful and original. There's plenty to like about the series! The characters are well-developed and consistent, and the animation is lovely. We like how the episodes begin with a book opening and end with the book shutting.

The DVD edition includes Clifford's Big Ideas with social responsibility themes—animated shorts about different themes (such as believing in yourself) as well as ideas for parents to extend the themes at home.

 

Families with DVD-ROM drives can pop the DVD into their computer and kids can play one of the phonics activities in the computer game, Clifford Phonics.

 

The DVD contains the latest kid-friendly “pop-n-play” feature from FHE, which allows kids to watch the DVD without using a remote control.
