One Of The Shows That Defined Nickelodeon
20 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw an episode of this show nearly twenty years ago. After knowing a little about it, I had no idea it would have a long run. If there's anything that made the show such a hit, perhaps its the cute characters and the themes that are totally original. Also, the idea of picking up clues, and putting them together to get the answer could inspire youngsters to have strategic thinking like detectives.

Again, the show was such a hit that it ran for over a decade. And because of how long it ran, Blue's Clues is definitely one of the series that defined Nickelodeon, along with Dora the Explorer, and Spongebob.

If girls would wear shirts depicting Blue, boys would probably wear shirts portraying Periwinkle.
