Nickelodeon is celebrating “Tuesday Blue’s Day” all month long with episodes of the preschool hybrid hit Blue’s Clues & You! on air, and all-new virtual playdates with series host Josh (Josh Dela Cruz) on linear and Nick Jr.’s social channels beginning Tuesday, May 5.
In the brand-new episode “Science with Blue,” airing Tuesday, May 5, at 9 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon, gospel sensation Yolanda Adams will lend her voice to the character of the Sun, a stellar singer with a radiant personality. Josh and Blue meet her while exploring outer space and she leads them in a catchy song about the solar system.
Additionally, the net will debut original Blue’s Clues & You! virtual playdates that will let preschoolers sing, play, move and learn with Josh and Blue in all-new ways from the comfort of their own homes. The 10-minute playdates will be available Tuesdays at 9 a.m. (ET) on Nickelodeon, as well as Nick Jr.’s YouTube, Instagram and Facebook throughout the month of May.
The Blue’s Clues & You! virtual playdates are part of Nickelodeon’s overall global, multiplatform prosocial initiative #KidsTogether, which launched on March 18, and uses Nick’s most popular characters and talent to engage with kids and families on tips for staying healthy and ideas for activities to do together while in the home.
