If “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” by Eiffel 65 hasn’t been stuck in your head since 1998, this will do the trick.
Nickelodeon is continuing the 25th-anniversary celebrations for preschool series Blue’s Clues with a reimagining of the popular ‘90s song, retitled “I’m Blue,” and the greatest reunion we never knew we needed. All three hosts of Blue’s Clues past and present — Blue’s Clues & You! star Josh Dela Cruz and former Blue’s Clues hosts, Steve Burns and Donovan Patton — got together to sing and dance along with Blue in a nostalgic music video extravaganza. Electronic/Eurodance group Eiffel 65 even rerecorded their famous song for the occasion.
That’s not the only comeback this year: The classic kitten character Periwinkle will also return in the season three premiere of Blue’s Clues & You! on Friday, Oct. 1, at 11 a.m. (ET/PT). In the episode, titled “Our New Neighbor,” Periwinkle moves in next door and becomes Josh and Blue’s new neighbor. Josh and Blue play Blue’s Clues to figure out how they can help Periwinkle feel welcome and to learn more about their new kitten neighbor. They help him unpack and even skidoo to his old neighborhood to find his missing stuffie.
The new season consists of 20 episodes starring Josh and Blue as they meet new friends; spend time with Josh’s family; and go on new adventures to the present store, outer space, and more. Josh’s Lola — his grandmother — will make an appearance, along with former hosts Steve (Steve Burns) and Joe (Donovan Patton), who will play Josh’s cousins.
