The circus has come to Birdwell Island and Emily Elizabeth comes across an attraction known as Larry's Amazing Animals, where a man performs daring stunts with his dogs. No one is more amazed though than Clifford and his friends Cleo and T-Bone. After the show, Cleo tells the animals that she and her friends would like to join. By the next show, Clifford manages to help a cow with her fear of heights, and become the new star of the show! Jealous of his success, Larry's rival Wolfsbottom kidnaps him for use in his own show, and Larry and Emily Elizabeth must now venture out to get him back.
