He appears often in episodes of the Blue's Clues television series, most notably at preschool along with Blue, Magenta, Green Puppy, Orange Kitten, and Periwinkle (according to Blue Takes You to School). He is mostly in the Joe episodes but sometimes airs during the Steve era. As his name suggests, his favorite color is purple which is proven in "Blue Takes You to School".
