Blue's Clues is a show where the two main characters are Blue and Steve (1996-2001), or in later episodes, Joe(2001- ). Blue is a dog who always wants to do something but Steve never knows what. Steve interacts with the viewers through the television and they play Blue's clues, to see what Blue wants to do.

Donovan Patton (Joe) auditioned for the role in the show at the age of 24 doing a Christopher Walken impression, even though he never heard of the show thinking it was about the blues and pictured Blue as a jazz-singing dog. See more

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.
