Nickelodeon Reviving Blue's Clues

Nickelodeon Reviving Blue's Clues

The new Blue's Clues series centers on the energetic girl puppy Blue who invites viewers into her animated world to help solve the day's puzzles with the help of a live-action host.

Nickelodeon just figured out that a new generation of kids might love Blue's Clues, and now they feel really smart. Once all the clues have been found, they then try to figure out what Blue wants to do.

An open call for the new host is looking for applicants between 18 and 25 years old with "a comedy background" and "a natural connection with the camera".

The original Blue's Clues was created by Traci Paige Johnson, Todd Kessler and Angela C. Santomero. Many preschooler favorites are presented "magazine-style", with a collection of short segments, but "Blue's Clues" stood apart from the pack because it took viewers through a storyline from start to finish.

"With our share growing and content pipeline in overdrive, we are reinventing ourselves to best serve the new and next generation of audiences on new and next-generation platforms", said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group.

Six years later, the show's host, Steve Burns, left the show.

The series became so popular that it drew nationwide attention when Burns retired from his hosting duties in 2002 and was replaced with Donovan Patton, according to Variety.

The classic Blue's Clues library is now available on NOGGIN, Nickelodeon's video subscription service for preschoolers, and short-form content can be found on the Nick Jr.

Cena is also executive producing a new game show for Nickelodeon called Keep It Spotless. Blue looks a little different than she did after the first run ended, for example.

"We are going to pass the torch", said Santomero of the search for a new host. She will look more three-dimensional and appear "even furrier and more huggable", said the producer.
