“Blues Clues” is getting its first live-action movie, and the TV show’s original showrunner, Steve Burnshe’s here to save the day.
“Blue’s Big City Adventure” takes Blue and current host Josh, played by Josh Dela Cruz, on a trip to New York, singing and dancing with big names along the way.
On his way to audition for the Broadway musical Rainbow Puppy, Josh realizes he left his handy dandy notebook at home. Not to be lost in the “Big Apple,” their team recruits none other than original “Blues Clues” host Burns.
In the new release motor homeBurns is seen opening the door to an animated alarm clock, soap and salt shaker, asking, “You? Is that you?”
All three of the show’s hosts over the years, including Joe, played by Donovan Patton, reunite for the first time in the music-filled film.
Other stars joining the cast include BD Wong, Ali Stroker, Taboo, Alex Winter, Phillipa Soo and Steven Pasquale.
The new film will be available to stream on Paramount+ from Friday, November 18, with the lead single, “On our way,” is released this Friday, October 7th.
In September 2021, Burns, who hosted the show from 1996 to 2002, moved everyone to tears of nostalgia with a heartfelt message on Nick Jr.’s Twitter account for the show’s 25th anniversary.
“Remember how when we were younger we used to run around and hang out with Blue and find clues and talk to Mr. Salt and freak out about the post office and do all the fun stuff? Burns said.
He recalled how he abruptly left the show to go to college, which he described as “really challenging, but great.”
“I mean, we started with clues,” he said later in the clip. “And now, what is it — student loans, jobs and families? And some of it was kind of hard, you know?’
The now 48-year-old ended the viral video by telling fans he’s proud of them for growing up, thanking them for helping him along the way and saying he’s “so happy we’re still friends.”
