Original ‘Blue’s Clues’ Host Steve Burns to Return for Premiere of Remake (Video)

“Blue’s Clues and You!” will also see the return of Donovan Patton as Joe

The original “Blue’s Clues” host Steve Burns is returning to make an appearance in the series premiere of Nickelodeon’s remake, “Blue’s Clues and You!”

Burns will be joined by fellow former host Donovan Patton (Joe), with the pair assisting the new host, Josh Dela Cruz, in solving his first game of Blue’s Clues. You can watch the trio interact in the trailer above.

According to Nickelodeon, “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” aired on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2006. The remake features a modern take on beloved “Blue’s Clues” hallmarks, like the Handy Dandy Notebook, which is now a smart phone that Josh can have video calls and receive emails. Blue and his pal Magenta have been updated with CG-animation, and original characters Tickety Tock, Slippery Soap, Shovel, Pail, Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, Cinnamon, Paprika, Felt Friends, Sidetable Drawer and Mailbox will all return — plus the original Thinking Chair.

New additions include Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper’s twins, Sage and Ginger, and an all-new Handy Dandy Guitar.

Following the series premiere of “Blue’s Clues & You!” full-length episodes will be available on NickJr.com, the Nick Jr. app, Nick Jr. On Demand and Download-to-Own services. Nickelodeon is also launching play-along, tap-and-touch immersive videos on its interactive learning subscription service, Noggin, alongside the show’s cable premiere.

“Blues Clues and You!” premieres Nov. 11 at 9 a.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
