As we all gear up for this holiday weekend with friends and family, networks are also gearing up to help us stay in the festive spirit. This includes shows for the little ones like Nickelodeon’s Blue’s Clues & You! The series is currently celebrating it’s 25th year anniversary. The legacy and lasting impact of the series continues to captivate a new generation of preschoolers searching for clues with one of television’s favorite pups, Blue. Along with the show’s host Josh Dela Cruz.
To celebrate the holiday season Blue’s Clues & You! has a special episode that is airing this Friday, November 26th titled A Blue’s Clues Festival of Lights. In this episode, a surprise guest comes to Periwinkle’s house to celebrate Chanukah, the very joyful, festival of lights. To discover the identity of the special guest, Blue and Josh play Blue’s Clues! As part of their celebration, they spin dreidels, fry latkes, and sing an original Chanukah song.
Also in the 95th edition of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Blue’s Clues Star Josh DelaCruz and former hosts Donovan Patton and Steve Burns will perform, You Can’t Spell Blue without YOU on the float. Joining them will be a 22 foot tall Blue covered in 13 pounds of glitter.
