Clifford the Big Red Dog animation cel setup.

Together, a two animation cel setup of Norman Bridwell's "Clifford the Big Red Dog" walking alongside his best friend Emily Elizabeth. Clifford image measures 6x10 inches, Emily measures 3 1/2x2 inches, both on 10 1/4x15-inch sheets, production markings along bottom edge. WITH: the matching pencil drawing of Clifford used to create the cel, drawn to same dimensions above. A color print background is included for presentation purposes only.

The character designs, production markings, and age of the cels indicate that setup is most likely related to the production of a series of 6 educational videos co-produced by Scholastic, Lee Mendelson, Bill Melendez Productions (best known as the animated Peanuts producers), and the Canadian animation studio Nelvana. This was the first animated series of any kind to feature Clifford. Cels from the series are scarce.
