Blue's Clues Characters
Blue is the main character of the show (aside from Steve). She is a playful little puppy who enjoys doing fun things with her friends. She expresses this by leaving clues around the house so everyone can guess what she wants to do. Her basic mark for leaving clues is her pawprint. Blue likes to eat sandwiches, but not dog food. Every episode she initiates a game of Blue's Clues in which she leaves three paw print clues for Steve and You to find in order to a question. Blue was born on a farm and was different from all the other puppies. Other than looking different she acted different to. Instead of eating out of a bowl on the ground she would eat at a table. Instead of Burrying a bone, she would paint a picture. She was very lonely and had no friends until Steve wished he could have the blue puppy in his book (which was Blue). Blue skidooed out of Steve's book and became Steve's best friend. Blue decided she wanted to stay, so she put her book back into the book shelf.
