Alternate Versions

A version was created for UK audiences. Several changes were:
  • The host was neither Steve or Joe. Instead a new character named Kevin (played by Kevin Duala) was given the role. He appeared in all episodes and wore both outfits the aforementioned American hosts wore.
  • Three characters have their names changed. Shovel and Pail are instead referred to as Spade and Bucket, Mailbox is now called Postbox.
  • Some song lyrics were changed with "British English" terms used in lieu of American English terms.
  • Periwinkle's gender is changed. In the US version, Periwinkle is a boy, however in the English version, his gender is changed to a female.

One Of The Shows That Defined Nickelodeon
20 October 2015 | by jimmydragtronSee 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.
