Manic Monday

More Manic ~ Manic Monday HQ

This is a dog named Blue. If you have small children you are probably pretty familiar with her. Shelby has graduated to the likes of High School Musical, That's So Raven, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody etc. So, we don't watch a whole lot of Nick Jr. But, when she was Tyler's age, she LOVED Blue's Clues. The show Blue's Clues begins when the host, (when we watched it was Steve but I think it's someone new now) asks Blue a question. She then reveals that she wants to play Blue's Clues by marking a blue paw print on an item. With the help of the audience, the host searches for three more blue paw prints through out the house. Along the way we meet characters such as side table drawer which holds the "handy dandy notebook". This is the item that the host will draw the clues in to help him (and the audience) figure out the clues. There are also Mr Pepper and Mrs Salt, Mailbox (where we get letters to a nifty tune), and the thinking chair (where we sit and "think, think, think" to figure out the clues. You can click HERE to hear the theme song.

My children were to old for Blues Clues, but you still can't escape the blue dog on everything from sheets to overalls. It sounds like a great show for children.

Lois Grebowski said...

Great theme! I didn't even think of that... but then my stepkids are older...

Having no children I didn`t have a clue about this Blues Clues stuff... now I guess I know more, haha.

Reba said...

Whoof! There`s something... ummmm, odd about the looks of this dawg. Give me a clue... what it is.

Titania Starlight said...

I love Blues Clues. He came out when I had my daughter so I can say I got to watch a lot of Blue. With my son it was Barney!! AUGH!!!!

By the way, stop by. I have an award for you. :o)

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh yes, we're big Blues Clues fans here! Although I miss the old ones with Steve - Joe just isn't nearly as good.

Claire said...

Arggghhhh! I was driven insane by this because of a little girl i use to babysit. She would demand to watch the same one over and over again, until the TV accidentally broke! Okay i plugged the plug because i couldn't take it any more :)

Villager said...

I have to admit that I never understood the whole Blues Clues phenomenon. My kids use to watch that show and I simply never 'got it'. (sigh)

My Manic Monday post is up. In it I discuss my favorite detectives who use clues to solve murder mysteries!

peace, Villager

Roger said...

I miss the whole blues clues thing :(

Gattina said...

I had no clue about the existence of the Blue's Clues, lol But I become a specialist with this game Clue, where I didn't have a clue of either !

Desert Songbird said...

My kids never got into Blue's Clues, but I always thought Blue was a cutie!

hana said...

happy mm!

Stine said...

That was a new one to me! Sure #5 Brat would love that...

everydayhealy said...

this is the first time I get in touch with "Manic Monday", feel like joining... :)

Asara said...

YAY! I'm so weird.. I loved Blue's Clues before I ever had kids.. I had a crush on Steve. Joe is nowhere near as good as Steve was! Now they've got Blue's Room too, and Blue TALKS??? I don't know what's up with that. The Blue I know and love goes Bow-Ba-Bow!!!

Blue Skiddoo, we can too!

Blue's Clues never got played in my house. My kids only have the slightest passing familiarity with the show.

Maggie said...

First Steve ! ! ! I agree.

Becky L said...

Did you ever see Mr Salt and Mrs Pepper's baby??? So cute-- Baby Paprika!!!

The original guy -- steve-- went to my highschool. Okay, well, I never knew him; he graduated several years before me. But my Spanish Teacher always talked about him.

Sophia said...

My daughter loved Blue's Clues when she was younger. I thought it was a cute show too...much better than most kids' shows.

Odat said...

Good take on "clue" !
Peace

Matt-Man said...

Blue was one of the fortunate ones to escape Michael Vick's fury. Cheers!!

Mo said...

I'll admit to a bit of a crush on the first Steve...
:)
when I worked at Target and the "handy dandy notebook" first came out, it was THE HOT item for a while!
Cheers to you & to Blues Clues!

Shelby said...

used to know all about blues clues... :)

Heart of Rachel said...

My son loves Blue's Clues. At first, I thought Blue was a boy but after watching it for a while I found out she's a girl. We have several videos of Blues Clue's at home.

lisa said...

oh the hours spent watching blues clues...! perfect fit for today.
Happy MM!

Sanni said...

Please come over and find out if you have a clue where we´ll be living soon ♥

RECOMMENDED!!!
Hello, I was seeking programs for Messenger and I found a web that says you if

someone has eliminated you from the MSN.
The page is http://www.checkmessenger3.com and is called Check Messenger 3.
Among the advantages that has I emphasize these:
1) CheckMessenger 3 shows you who has eliminated you from the MSN Messenger.
2) Check Messenger 3 shows you who has blocked you from Messenger.
3) tells you everithing about all your contacts that added you to their contact list

and never informed you.
4) Moreover, you can download a lot of programs, avatars, skins, emoticons and games

for the Messenger for FREE.

Well, it's a recommendation of a web that I've found, is very good and you don't have

to install anything in your computer, so it's a secure and very fast page to know who

has eliminated you from the MSN.

Check Messenger 3 is: http://www.checkmessenger3.com
I hope you enjoy this web that i've found seeking things!!

This is one show my niece was never into...she preferred Wiggles.

Lee said...

For some reason, my two haven't really ever picked up on Blue's Clues... we are living in The Wiggle's World...

Neila said...

I can't believe I didn't think of Blue's Clues! Georgia loves that show, and it is quite funny to watch her "skadoo".

The real question is, are you a Steve fan or a Joe fan??

my kids are just a bit too old to be part of the mania....smile.
