Blue's Clues Wiki

Steve's and Joe's Grandma is the grandma of Steve and Joe, and the grandaunt of Josh. She seems to have met every resident of the Blue's Clues house besides Cinnamon and lives near the house of Blue and Steve. Her green striped dress is identical to Steve's green striped shirt. She is portrayed by the late Rue McClanahan.


Steve's grandma had light brown hair. She wore a green striped dress, a nod to Steve's trademark green striped shirt.



  • She is probably the oldest character in the show, aside from Grandma Cayenne.
  • Unlike some live action characters, Rue was the special guest as Steve's grandmother. The reason why is because she is a famous celebrity, known for portraying as one of The Golden Girls.
  • It is unknown what her real name is. The only name she is addressed by is "Grandma".
  • She appeared on the call reminder in "Periwinkle Misses His Friend"’
  • She does not appear in the reboot. Instead, she is replaced by Lola. It is likely that she had since died due to Rue’s death in 2010, or maybe the creators couldn’t find a replacement actor for her.
  • She is the answer to Blue's Clues in Blue's Big Treasure Hunt and the CD album with the same name.
