Nickelodeon preschool series gets its reboot with a new-look host in May.

Former Nickelodeon series Blues Clues gets a reboot with Blues Clues & You! in May.

Filipino-American actor Joshua Dela Cruz stars in the new-look preschool series joined by past hosts Steve Burns (Steve) and Donovan Patton (Joe).

“Children engage with the world through play. Their sense of wonder, curiosity and experimentation drive the learning and development needed in order to thrive,” says play expert Catherine Sewell.

“By leading the viewers through a series of clues, Blue’s Clues and You! taps into the natural curiosity of children and helps them develop problem solving skills. Blue’s Clues and You! delightfully takes children on a journey where they learn through play, song, drawing and imagination. When children play, their brain lights up with new connections and they develop important physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Play increases engagement, and engagement increases learning!”

With a little help from old friends, Josh’s first puzzle is to follow Blue’s clues to discover what Blue wants with her snack!

Blue’s Clues & You! will feature brand-new elements alongside refreshed iconic items from the original series, including:

New CG-animation for Blue and Magenta
An updated Handy Dandy Notebook equipped with a new blue crayon and smartphone technology, allowing Josh and Blue to receive emails and video calls
An all-new Handy Dandy Guitar

The return of fan-favourite characters: Tickety Tock, Slippery Soap, Shovel, Pail, Mr Salt, Mrs Pepper, Cinnamon, Paprika, Felt Friends, Sidetable Drawer and Mailbox, plus the original Thinking Chair
And the introduction of Mr Salt and Mrs Pepper’s newest additions—twins Sage and Ginger

A remake of the groundbreaking, curriculum-driven interactive series Blue’s Clues, Blue’s Clues & You! follows Blue as she invites viewers to join her and Josh on a clue-led adventure and solve a puzzle in each episode. With each signature paw print, Blue identifies clues in her animated world that propel the story and inspire the audience to interact with the characters.

The original Blue’s Clues series launched in September 1996 to critical praise from educators, parents, and preschoolers and ran for six groundbreaking seasons. Created by Traci Paige Johnson, Todd Kessler, and Angela C. Santomero, Blue’s Clues drew acclaim and high ratings for its unique interactivity that helped change the way kids watch television and has remained one of the most popular preschool shows of all time. The landmark series also raised the bar in preschool television by exploring advanced subject matter such as sign language, geography, physics, emotions, and anatomy.
