Dog of the Geek: Blue!

blues-clues-coloring-pagesBreed: Unknown

Original Appearances: Blue's Clues, Nickelodeon Television, 1995 – 2006

Other Appearances: Blue's Room (follow up show) and lots of merchandise. These days, Blue's Clues can be seen on Nick Jr.

Biography: Blue was owned by Steve (and later Joe), who lived in a house with Mailbox, a talking mailbox, Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper (talking French salt & pepper shakers who later had a baby, Paprika), Tickety, a talking alarm clock, Slippery Soap a talking bar of soak, Shovel and Pail, and Sidetable Drawer (I think you can guess what they are). Whenever Blue wants to tell her owner about something she wants to do (or something he wants to get, or somewhere to go), she makes a pawprint of hers appear (on the screen, for those watching), indicating she wants to play Blue's Clues so her owner can figure it out. Then Blue's owner finds the clues (which have Blue's pawprint on them), draws them in the handy-dandy notebook, and once all three clues have been found, he can figure out Blue's Clues. Along the way, there are songs that are repeated every single episode, and some sign language is used. Several other characters appear in episodes, including Magenta (another dog, Blue's best friend), Periwinkle (a kitten), Felt Friends, Green Puppy, and others.

Powers: Ability to “Skiddoo” into pictures – a power her owner also has – they can jump into pictures and interact with the beings in them.

Group Affiliation: None

Miscellaneous: Why include Blue in the Dog of the Geek? Well, why not? I had to sit through countless episodes of it with my kids, may as well make it pay off somehow!
