Blue's Clues is an animated preschool television series created for Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. block. It follows the adventures of Blue, a blue spotted puppy, her owners (Steve and Joe), and their friends (who are all household objects like Mailbox and Sidetable Drawer). The show premiered on September 8, 1996.
Due to the success of the show, foreign versions have been produced, either dubbing Steve/Joe's voices, or replacing them with a completely new host, like in the United Kingdom and Portugal, where Kevin Duala and Duarte Gomes physically appear as their respective country's host. A spin-off featuring puppets, titled Blue's Room, aired from 2004 to 2007. A reboot, titled Blue's Clues & You!, premiered in 2019.
