Blue's Room is an American children's live-action/animated puppet television series originally broadcast on Nickelodeon as part of the Nick Jr. block. It is a spin-off series of the popular Blue's Clues series, and was created by Traci Paige Johnson and Angela C. Santomero.[1] The show started as short segments on Blue's Clues episodes in Season 6.

In March 2015, the entire series was made available as part of the Noggin app.[2]

Premise[edit]

The series centers around the title character and host of the show, Blue, a happy-go-lucky female blue puppy who talks and loves to sing, dance, and play with her new friends. Blue often interacts with her friends including Sprinkles, Blue's shy little brother who was introduced in the second season as the co-host, Roar E. Saurus (or simply Roary), an orange dinosaur who likes to practice roaring, Frederica, a purple doll who likes to pretend it's her birthday, and Polka Dots, a sea-foam plush toy who creates puzzles for others to solve. Together, they go on adventures, solve different problems, and use their imaginations.

Characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Blue (puppeteered by Leslie Carrara-Rudolph and voiced by Victoria Pontecorvo) – The title character and hostess of the show. Blue is a happy-go-lucky female blue puppy who is Sprinkles' older sister. She often greets others by shouting, "Hi you!" and usually asks viewers open-ended questions. Her catchphrase is "Hoop-dee-doo!"
  • Polka Dots (puppeteered and voiced by Peter Linz) – Polka Dots is Blue's best friend, a sea-green plush toy who creates puzzles for others to solve.
  • Frederica aka Fred (puppeteered and voiced by Cheryl Blaylock) – Fred is one of Blue's good friends who usually pretends that it is her birthday every day. She is a purple doll with orange hair.
  • Roar E. Saurus aka Roary (puppeteered and voiced by Joey Mazzarino) – Roary is an orange dinosaur who likes to practice roaring.
  • Sprinkles (puppeteered and voiced by Joey Mazzarino) – Blue’s baby brother and the co-host of the show added to the cast in the second season, Sprinkles is a somewhat shy spotted puppy.
  • Doodle Board (puppeteered and voiced by Peter Linz) – An easel who doodles and draws to tell the viewer to guess what the object is.
  • Dress-Up Chest (puppeteered and voiced by Tyler Bunch) – A purple treasure chest who gives the others costumes to wear. He also occasionally narrates story segments.
  • Boogie-Woogie (puppeteered and voiced by Joey Mazzarino) – A jukebox who likes to sing and dance.
  • Silly Seat (puppeteered by Marc Petrosino and voiced by Jared Goldsmith) – A chair who tells silly jokes, crazy riddles, and other funny things. He disappears from the supporting cast in the second season for unknown reasons.
  • Joe (portrayed by Donovan Patton; guest, season 1; main, season 2) – Joe is a human, Blue's caretaker and Steve's younger brother and "Blue's Clues"-playing apprentice. He is often seen alongside Sprinkles.

Recurring[edit]

  • Handy Dandy Journal (voiced by Brianna Gentilella) – A talking book whose face and design resembles that of Polka Dots. Blue writes and draws various thoughts about specific aspects of episodes in his pages.
  • Dictionary (also voiced by Brianna Gentilella) - A book containing many words and their definitions that Blue looks in almost every day to find out what the Word of the Day is. She has a face and has the ability to speak, similar to all other residents of Blue's Room.
  • Key (voiced by Jared Goldsmith) – One of the few animated characters in the show, Key is a magical key Polka Dots keeps in his pocket. He opens Dress-Up Chest's lock and is colored gold and orange.
  • Moona (voiced by Christiana Anbri) – Similarly to Key, Moona is an animated character in the show. She is a green and blue-colored fairy made of crescent shapes who tells Blue it is time to go home and appears at the end of each segment and episode.
