Blue's Clues Wiki

Periwinkle (or simply Peri) is a male kitten from the city who first appears in Blue's Big Mystery. He becomes a recurring friend of Blue afterward.

Periwinkle loves to do magic tricks, put on shows, build forts, and do things on a grand scale. He's very outgoing and likes to collect things. Periwinkle talks and is a male cat. Among his favorite hobbies are being mischievous and practicing magic. Periwinkle is friends with Plum, a purple bird (or Rainbow Puppy in Blue's Clues & You) that lives in the same city he lived in before moving to Blue's neighborhood. Steve and Joe often call him Peri. His favorite color is red which is proven in "Blue Takes You to School".


Periwinkle is an excitable and sneaky kitten who came from the city. He recently moved into Blue's neighborhood and met many new people in the new environment in Season 3. He goes to school with Blue, Magenta, and many other animal children and enjoys playing with others and practicing magic tricks.


Periwinkle is a lilac tabby kitten, and he is bluish white with a periwinkle with blue triangles on his forehead. He has triangles on his back, triangular ears and a pink nose. Periwinkle has a short curvy and skinny tail and four legs; his feet have invisible toes. His right front foot is periwinkle and the other feet aren't.

In the reboot, he stands on his two legs, like Orange Kitten, and his front paws have visible thumbs, instead of walking on four legs like from the original.


Periwinkle has appeared in various episodes. His first appearance was in "Blue's Big Mystery" (as the answer to Blue's Clues). His last appearance in the original series was Bluestock. He made a return in the Blue's Clues & You episode "Our New Neighbor."


  • Periwinkle is the answer to Blue's Clues twice: in Blue's Big Mystery and The Ghost of the Living Room.
  • Periwinkle is the second clue in "Blue's Predictions".
  • In "Blue's Big Musical", Periwinkle thought the group inside the house were doing a magic show when they were really doing a music show. But because the Blue's Clues group needed more time to get ready backstage, Periwinkle did his magic show to entertain the audience.
  • Periwinkle was in Steve and Blue's house for the first time on the episode "Café Blue".
  • Before Periwinkle moved next door to the Blue's Clues house, he lived in a city.
  • He skidooed in two episodes: "Periwinkle Misses His Friend" and "The Big Book About Us".
  • In the episode "Periwinkle Misses His Friend", Periwinkle wondered what happened to Blue until Steve tells him that Blue skidooed into the little city he had just built.
  • In Blue Takes You to School, Periwinkle's favorite color was red.
  • Periwinkle is first seen interacting with Joe in "The Big Book About Us".
  • He interacts with Sidetable Drawer in "Blue's Big Musical" and how they shared their feelings with themselves.
    • Sidetable tells Periwinkle that she wanted to sing in the show but never told Steve she wanted to. While Periwinkle had a similar response, Steve never got to see any of his magic tricks.
  • He only appeared in only a few episodes with Sidetable Drawer saying "Blue's Clues, I'm so excited" because most episodes with Sidetable Drawer saying "Blue's Clues, I'm so excited" were before Periwinkle's debut.
  • His owner was never shown in the original series, but first appears in "A Blue's Clues Festival of Lights." Her name is Aly.
  • Periwinkle returns in the Blue's Clues & You episode: "Our New Neighbor".
    • However, in Blue's Clues & You, he does not walk on all fours like his original counterpart. Instead, he stands upright on his hind legs.
    • He states in the aforementioned episode that his best friend from his old neighborhood is Rainbow Puppy, which may imply that after the original Blue's Clues ended, he moved to another city.
  • In the UK dub, Periwinkle only SOUNDED female, but alas, still treated as a male kitten in "Blue's Big Band."
  • In Blue's Clues & You, his favorite stuffed toy is a red rabbit named Presto.
  • Cameron Bowen also does the voice of Bob The Ball from the HBO Family show, A Little Curious.
  • Jansen Panettiere also does the role of Robby Hobbie from Holly Hobbie and Friends.
