Clifford's personality was also changed from a hip, laid-back character to a more uptight and stressed out person, essentially putting in Kermit’s shoes (or “flippers”, rather). As one can imagine, this change did not suit well with fans.

In an interview with ''ToughPigs,'' Kevin Clash revealed that he hated the eyes, and was glad to see Clifford return to his original, classic self. Further to that extent, Kevin Clash said that he'd refuse to reprise his role in the future if they removed Clifford's shades again.

Clifford is a hip, laid-back humanoid Muppet with catfish-like facial features who first appeared on the Jim Henson Hour's MuppeTelevision segments and was later selected to host Muppets Tonight. Clifford is the only character introduced in The Jim Henson Hour to make any further appearances.

He is often seen wearing sunglasses and his multicolored dreadlocks give his appearance a Rastafarian feel. At one time, he was also a member of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

After the Jim Henson Hour, Clifford was planned to become the host of the next Muppet show. This was a decision kept by the company after Jim Henson’s death and became the basis for Muppets Tonight. In the first episode, Kermit asks a group of Muppets if any of them want to host the new show. Every other Muppet rushed out of the room except Clifford, resulting in him getting the job. 

During the Muppets Tonight era, Clifford's personality was changed from a cool, laid-back character to a more uptight and stressed out person, on account of the duties of being the host, putting him in Kermit's shoes. His appearance was changed as well; he was featured with eyes instead of his sunglasses for the first (and only) time and his casual clothes were replaced with a generic talk-show host outfit. 

After Muppets Tonight ended, Clifford returned in Muppets from Space and The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, where he was returned to his original sunglasses-look. At MuppetFest, Kevin Clash revealed that he disliked the eyes, and would refuse to perform Clifford again, unless he was wearing his sunglasses.

According to Kermit, Clifford is currently working as a bass guitarist and male model.
