PBS’s Clifford Reboot Joins Woke Liberals by Adding Two Lesbian Characters
When my children were preschool age I could always count on PBS to show educational and wholesome programs. My favorites were Mr. Rogers, Sesame Streer, The Electric Company, and, sadly, Clifford the Big Red Dog.
Sesame Street did eventually incorporate “pop” music stars to grace their show, but shows such as Mr. Rogers would always be a calming, almost Sunday School like experience without the Bible stories.
I never had to worry about PBS showing violence or anything negative. A boy was a boy and a girl was a girl.
Now in this “woke” era, we, as parents and grandparents, need to be very discerning as to what we allow our children to watch because our biblical beliefs are quickly becoming extinct in today’s secular society.

The beloved animated show Clifford the Big Red Dog in recent weeks became the second PBS Kids series with a recurring LGBT character when one of Emily Elizabeth’s friends brought her two moms to a dinner party.
The series, based on a popular Scholastic book character, follows the exploits of an energetic girl named Emily Elizabeth and her giant red dog, Clifford, who is the size of a house.
It was rebooted by PBS and Amazon Prime last year with new animation and new voices. It is within this reboot that two lesbian characters were introduced – although it may not be obvious to many children.
In the episode in question, “The Big Red Tomato/Dogbot,” Emily Elizabeth holds an outdoor dinner party for her friend Samantha. When the dinner is set to begin, Samantha walks up with her two moms.
