MANILA, Philippines – If you're still feeling a little iffy over the upcoming Blue's Clues remake, a new clip from the show might just ease your mind.
In a two-minute video posted by Nick Jr, we meet Josh – Blue's latest buddy – who can seem to understand what the clue-seeking blue dog wants. So what do you do when you're clueless? Call two people who know Blue the best!
Josh turns to his handy dandy notebook – which now apparently is also a phone on the other side – and calls his cousins, OG Blue's Clues host Steve and Joe, to help him decode Blue.
You're going to need to sit in your Thinking Chair for this news: Steve and Joe will be in the first episode of Blue's Clues & You! Check out this clip as they return to help Josh play his very first Blue's Clues pic.twitter.com/qcGgDDv9c0 — Nick Jr. (@nickjr) August 26, 2019
But it's the latter half of the conference call that's leaving older viewers – who are admittedly no longer part of the Blue's Clues market – a little nostalgic. "Hey, can I talk to my friend out there?" asks Steve, after they tell Josh a round of Blue's Clues is all Blue wants.
Breaking the fourth wall, Steve says: "Hi! So will you help my cousin Josh? You will? Great. Because I can tell...he's gonna need a lot of help like I did."
"Like I did!" Joe then chimes in.
Blue's Clues, which first aired in 1996 and was hosted by Steve Burns, features the titular character, a blue dog named Blue who leaves clues for her friend – and the audience – to decode. At the end of the episode, her buddy sits down on the Thinking Chair and decodes – again, with the audience's help – the clues.
When Burns left, he was replaced by Donovan Patton, who played Steve's brother Joe.
Blue's Clues was among Nickelodeon's longest-running Nick Jr series. It ended in 2006.
