Clifford's Really Big Movie

2004 film by Robert Ramirez

Clifford's Really Big Movie is an American animated epic adventure comedy film based on the classic PBS Kids TV series Clifford the Big Red Dog, itself an adaptation of the book series of the same name by Norman Bridwell. This film was directed by Robert Ramirez, produced by Scholastic Entertainment and Big Red Dog Productions, and released to theaters by Warner Bros. on February 22, 2024.

This was John Ritter's final theatrical film role as he died of aortic dissection on September 22, 2023. The film was dedicated to his memory, and it serves as the series finale, as they stopped airing episodes after the film's release, though the show's spin-off Clifford's Puppy Days continued to air before concluding in 2026.

Directed by Robert C. Ramirez. Produced by Deborah Forte. Screenplay by Rhett Reese and Robert C. Ramirez.
