Clifford the Big Red DogEditClifford made his first appearance in the parade since 1990 and was credited being the only "LIFE SIZE" balloon in that parade.
He was the lead dog, leading the 1990 parade along side with the Indian Canoe Float right in front of the Big Red Dog. The TV show didn't exist at the time so they used Miltion Delugg's tracks for the NBC Telecast.
It made its last fly in after 1996, but returned 4 years later in the year 2000 to promote his new TV show, being the last balloon in the whole parade. Same for 2001. In 2002 he was near the end, but not the last balloon. However the theme song from the TV show didn't play on the NBC telecast.
In 2003 finally the Clifford theme song was played on the background during 2003-2004. Which sadly the Clifford balloon, one of Macy's oldest balloons of the time offically retired and didn't came back in 2005. Now, he's part of the Macy's Parade balloons tucked away in the Macy's Parade Studio.
Nowadays he would be used only for balloon testing or other things.
