00:02:23Both:" [people chatter] Woman:..
00:02:40Both: Woof!
00:02:44Man: Yeah, check this out.
00:02:47Woman: It's you!
00:02:53Man: Did you see that?
00:03:04Woman: Look at that. that's so pretty.
00:03:12Woman: It's you!
00:03:16Man: Did you see that?
00:03:23[Ding] [laughs] back, back. steady, steady.
00:03:47 bleakman, that's quite a cookie you baked.
00:03:51Oh, I didn't bake this.
00:03:53Mr. bleakman made it all by himself.
00:03:55It's the biggest cookie I've ever seen at the birdwell fair.
00:03:59It's a beauty, isn't it?
00:04:01It looks like a prizewinner to me.
00:04:04How about a picture, mr. bleakman?
00:04:06Cookie and cook.
00:04:08Why, sure.
00:04:16I can't wait to see everyone's face when you uncover this treat at the end of the day.
00:04:22I know I'll be there.
00:04:30We'll see you then, folks.
00:04:32Bye. thanks for your help.
00:04:34Now, what do you say I go win you a big stuffed teddy bear, violet?
00:04:40Ooh, that would be wonderful, horace, but shouldn't someone stay here and watch your cookie?
00:04:46Don't worry, violet. it'll be just fine.
00:04:59[Sniffs] wait a minute.
00:05:02Do you guys smell that?
00:05:05[Both sniff] uh-huh. I sure do.
00:05:09Mm-mmm. scrum-dum-delicious.
00:05:14Let's go see what it is.
00:05:25It's coming from in there.
00:05:38All: Wow!
00:05:47That's one big cookie.
00:05:49It's humongous!
00:05:51It's just my size.
00:05:58But it's not on the ground.
00:05:59And it's not headed that way.
00:06:04Both: So it's not for the dogs, and it's not ok.
00:06:10 I have a feeling we should get out of here.
00:06:14Right. let's go.
00:06:19Ahem. clifford? let's go.
00:06:23Aw, now, come on, big guy.
00:06:35I think clifford has a giant cookie craving.
00:06:38Well, it's the first time he's ever seen a cookie his size.
00:06:44We have to help him forget about that treat.
00:06:55Oops, sorry, guys.
00:06:57You've just got to get your mind off that cookie.
00:07:01I'm trying, cleo, but everywhere I look, ..
00:07:08Is that big, sweet, delicious cookie.
00:07:19Clifford, come back.
00:07:21Wait for us.
00:07:27Are you ok, clifford?
00:07:32Uh-huh. I'm ok.
00:07:34Poor guy.
00:07:35He has a really bad case of cookie-itis.
00:07:38Maybe if I just had one little lick, I wouldn't want any more.
00:07:45[Sniffs] mmm.
00:07:51No, clifford! wait!
00:08:03I know I can't eat it, and I won't.
00:08:09And one little sniff couldn't hurt.
00:08:14[Sniffs] eh.
00:08:18Both: Clifford!
00:08:20 [gasps] wow! a piece of the cookie is on the ground!
00:08:28It was an accident.
00:08:29Well, you know the people-food rule.
00:08:39All: And that's ok.
00:08:41That is the rule, so let's eat, guys.
00:08:45You go ahead, clifford.
00:08:47You can have it.
00:08:50It's all yours, big guy.
00:08:52[Crunches] mmm.
00:08:57That was so good.
00:08:59Gee, it looks kind of lopsided now.
00:09:03It sure does.
00:09:05Hey, I know.
00:09:06How about we eat all the way around the cookie and even it out?
00:09:10That way, no one will notice a piece is missing.
00:09:13That sounds like a good idea.
00:09:17Ok, everyone. let's eat.
00:09:20[All chomping] there. all done.
00:09:28No one will ever know a piece is missing.
00:09:30Oh, it was a tough job, but it had to be done, and we were just the dogs to do it.
00:09:38[Burps] uh-huh, but I'm kinda glad we're done.
00:09:43I'm so full, I couldn't eat another bite.
00:09:46[Burps] [yawns] me, neither.
00:09:54Uh, guys, doesn't it still look a little lopsided?
00:09:59Well, maybe a little.
00:10:02[Yawns] uh-huh.
00:10:04I guess we'll have to eat some more to even it out.
00:10:08 [slurps] ladies and gentlemen, get ready to see the biggest oatmeal raisin cookie you've ever seen-- a real clifford-size confection.
00:10:24Ha ha ha. he's right about that.
00:10:27Just wait until clifford sees it.
00:10:29Sheriff lewis, reveal my culinary wonder.
00:10:41[Crowd gasps] clifford!
00:10:58Clifford, what happened?
00:11:02[Whimpers] violet, look.
00:11:06That big red rascal ate my cookie.
00:11:11Now, now, horace, I'm sorry, but you can't really blame him, can you?
00:11:18Well, you made such a delicious smelling, yummy looking, crunchy sounding, scrum-dum-delicious cookie, how could the poor dog resist?
00:11:29Oh, it was a beautiful cookie, wasn't it?
00:11:34 bleakman, I'm so sorry clifford ate your cookie, and I know clifford is very sorry, too.
00:11:42[Whimpers] well, it was a pretty remarkable cookie.
00:11:48I guess I can't really blame him for not being able to resist it.
00:11:57Including leaving too big of a temptation in front of a very large dog.
00:12:19Emily Elizabeth: Clifford!
00:12:26It's story time.
00:12:27You wanna hear a speckle story, don't you?
00:12:30Woof! woof!
00:12:31[Giggles] I thought so.
00:12:33He's your favorite.
00:12:34Today's story is "speckle and his very own " one day, speckle was reading one of his favorite books.
00:12:42He was enjoying it so much, he decided to write a book of his own.
00:12:47So he sat down at his desk, and he began to write.
00:12:52In speckle's story, darnell finds an amazing treasure map.
00:12:57He asks reba, luna, and ravi to join him on an adventure to find the treasure.
00:13:03Following the map, they made their way ..
00:13:11And opened the secret entrance to an ancient ..
00:13:18Where they discovered the treasure that was to be shared by all.
00:13:23When speckle was finished writing his book, there was still more fun to be had because reba, luna, ravi, and darnell were eager to hear the story ..
00:13:35A story that was a true treasure.
00:13:38The end.
00:13:40That was a great story. isn't reading fun?
00:13:47[Giggles] [thinking] dear jetta, I have the best news.

00:16:22But, um, isn't that a lot to do in just a few hours?

00:17:37What do we do first?
00:17:39Well, for our first activity, we're going to the beach to look for seashells.
00:17:45I've set my timer so we'll know exactly how much time we have before our next activity.

00:18:27We should be halfway to seashell cove by now!
00:18:31Don't worry. clifford will take you there.
00:18:35Really? I'd love that!
00:18:38I don't know.

00:18:45Let's go. thanks, emily elizabeth.

00:19:00And it's the best place on the whole island to find seashells.

00:19:32Wait till you see 'em all!
00:19:33There are some really big ones here.
00:19:38I don't think you're gonna find any big ones today, jetta.

00:19:45Guys, this is my pen pal, monique.

00:19:49I don't think you'll be able to find any shells today.
00:19:52We've been looking all morning and han't fod a single one.
00:19:55But they have to be here.
00:19:57This is our planned activity for the next 23 minutes.
00:20:02Maybe the shells have a schedule of their own.
00:20:04Or maybe you just don't know the right places ..
00:20:09Like I do.
00:20:12Well, good luck.
00:20:16Sometimes you have to dig for the really good ones.
00:20:18I'm sure we'll find one soon.
00:20:29[Both laugh] you didn't find any seashells, but you did find the sea.
00:20:37Get 'em!

00:21:15Oh, thank goodness the timer is still ok.
00:21:19We need it to stay on schedule.
00:21:23What about lunch, jetta?
00:21:25How about some fish and chips, jamaican style?
00:21:33What do you think, monique?
00:21:35These are the best fish and chips I've ever had, charlie. thanks.
00:21:43But we were supposed to have peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
00:21:46That's your favorite.

00:21:51[Ring] lunchtime's over!
00:21:53Come on, monique, we'd better hurry!
00:21:58It's bike riding time.
00:21:59Thanks for lunch, charley.
00:22:01See you later, guys.
00:22:06[Squawks] I can't believe I got a flat tire.
00:22:13Oh, well.
00:22:14Things like this happen sometimes, jetta.
00:22:17Hey! come back here with my timer!
00:22:22[Ring] [squawks] no! my timer!
00:22:32Oh! this was definitely not part of the plan.
00:22:37Well, maybe there's something else we can do here, jetta.
00:22:41There's nothing to do here. absolutely nothing.
00:22:46Look, someone's flying a kite.
00:22:50 some of my friends were making kites yesterday.
00:22:53They must be flying them today.
00:22:56Let's go see!
00:22:57But wait, monique, kite flying isn't on the schedule. oh.
00:23:02Oh, well. I guess we're going kite flying.
00:23:08[All chatter] [barks] oh, my gosh! it's almost 4:00!
00:23:26Oh, no! I'm gonna miss the ferry!
00:23:30Not if you take the clifford express!
00:23:33[Barks] we're almost there!
00:23:48Gosh, monique, I'm sorry things got messed up, and we didn't get to do everything I'd planned.
00:23:53It's ok, jetta.
00:23:54I did the most important thing on my list.
00:23:57You did? what was that?
00:23:58I spent an amazing day with you.
00:24:01It didn't matter what we did, just as long as we did it together.
00:24:05Oh, thanks, monique.
00:24:08Wow. I had a pretty amazing day, too.
00:24:12Bye! I'll write soon!
00:24:16Me, too!
00:24:17Both: Bye! woof!
00:24:18[Horn blares] I'm sorry you didn't get to do everything on your list, jetta.
00:24:25You know, emily elizabeth, you don't always have to stick to a plan.
00:24:28Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow like I do.
00:24:33I guess you're right.
00:24:34[Both laugh] woof!
00:24:50Eh, gotcha!
00:24:51Hey, you're not my hedgehog toy, but you sure are a great toy!
00:24:59Hi, cleo.
00:25:01Cleo, you found my bunny squeak toy!
00:25:03 diller just, uh, bought this toy for me.
00:25:10Emily Elizabeth: Sometimes it seems like making up a story will make things turn out the way we want ..
00:25:15Um, I don't really feel like playing right now, guys.
00:25:18But most of the time, it's a much better idea to just tell the truth.
00:25:23[Whimpers] t-bone, wait.
00:25:26This is your bunny squeak toy, t-bone.
00:25:30 diller just bought it for you.
00:25:33I made that up.
00:25:35The toy belongs to you.
00:25:36Thanks, cleo!
00:25:37Emily Elizabeth: Telling the truth .. whoo-hoo!
00:25:40But it is always the right thing to do.
00:25:43That's why clifford's big idea for today ..
00:25:46 [barks] my name is isabel.
00:25:49They're all different sizes.

00:26:23This is my dog butterscotch.
00:26:24His name was going to be scotch, but he looked like butter, so I named him butterscotch.
00:26:30I snowshoe with him.
00:26:32Sometimes he pulls me on the sled.
00:26:34He's a good doggie.
00:26:37He protects me a lot.
00:26:39I like it because he never runs off, he always stays with me.
00:26:44I love you, yukon.
