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.

User Reviews

I love this show and I'm not even a baby!
28 March 2009 | by sinisterdrecc88See all my reviews

Blues Clues was one of my favorite shows growing up. It still is. Well, the episodes with Steve anyway. It is a very good show for preschoolers beginning to learn. Steve plays games to find 3 paw prints that Blue has hidden in various places (on a cloud, on a jar, etc). Preschoolers will have a great time helping Steve find the clues, and Steve really has to return to the show because Joe took over. I think parents will like this show too, because I'm not a little kid but I still love it. I recommend this show to anyone, because it rocks and is fun to interact with.
