    Sock It to Me / My Toy

    Clifford and Emily Elizabeth have a great time playing with the “sock spider.” Daffodil feels left out but doesn’t tell him how she feels. In the end she finally admits her feelings and, feeling he hasn’t been sensitive, Clifford asks her to join in the game. She does and the three play Hide n’ Seek with the sock spider. It’s another day at the dog run. As per usual, each pup brings a toy to share with the other dogs, but Jorge is reluctant to share his brand new squeaky squirrel. First, he hides it. Then he deflects attention onto the other dogs’ toys. Then he pretends he’s lost the toy. Finally, Jorge agrees to let the others use it, but is so protective that his friends find it almost impossible to really play with it. Jorge confesses the truth and then trudges off with his toy, thinking no one wants to play with him but the other dogs call him back. They understand that you can have a really special toy that you want to save just for yourself and respect Jorge’s desire to keep his “special toy” separate from the groups’ play. In the end, Jorge realizes he should have just been honest about his feelings from the beginning.

    It’s the first snowfall of the year and it seems like everyone in the apartment building has a set tradition for the occasion except Norville. As a result, Norville is left feeling sad and lonely. His spirits are lifted, though, when his friends start a new winter tradition that specifically includes him. Flo is a super-athlete - she excels in physical pursuits, whether it be running, spinning, or catching a flying disc. Clifford can’t keep up with her, but he doesn’t care, as long as he’s having fun. But when Jorge brings over his new toy, a Bean Bag, Flo discovers to her dismay that she’s not very good at playing with it. Worse yet, Clifford is just great at the Bean Bag game. Rather than admit that she’s not very good, Flo dismisses this new game as boring, and claims that she’d rather play by herself. Once she’s all alone, however, Flo realizes that being with your friends, not being the best, is what makes playtime so much fun.
