Blues Clues: Angela Santomero & Traci Paige Johnson Interview

*Disclaimer-  I was invited to take part of the Blues Clues press junket, thanks to Nickelodeon virtually. 

In celebration of the DVD release of Blue’s Clues & You: Story Time With Blue, and also the 25th Anniversary of the beloved series Blue’s Clues, I got to be part of the Blues Clues press day virtually and got to interview Angela Santomero & Traci Paige Johnson, who are the co-creators of Blues Clues! 

If you're like me, you probably grew up with the original Blues Clues so this is neat that they have Blues Clues and You now for kids now to watch and re-runs of the original!! It was really cool and touching the video message that Steve did for kids and of course everyone like myself who grew up watching him on the original Blues Clues, 25 years ago!

1. What made you decide to come up with the show Blues Clues and You, after several years of no Blues Clues new episodes once the host left? Our family loves the show and I grew up with the original Blues Clues, so it has a big place in my heart. Josh is a super fun host and my kids enjoy the show.

Double dare, show for preschoolers. Games and talking with the camera. Played over and wanted to share with those around the world, cirriculum. Made more episodes even after show stopped and

2. What is your favorite thing about Blues Clues and You as a fun loving show, as co-creators of the original show?

Getting to work together with your best friend. Amazing programming for kids. Knowing kids are smart because they watch the show. Self worth. Steve's video.

3. What made you decide to create such a wonderful show for kids to love and enjoy, and the parents who grew up with the original Blues Clues as well?

Finding someone we knew to take over was a great thing. Josh was over head and tails in acting ability, dancing, singing. was amazing. Exciting piece.

Yes we have Periwinkle. Re introduced is Rainbow Puppy. New live action characters.
