Having already starred in the original broadway play ‘Aladdin’, Joshua admitted that the ‘mail song’ in Blue’s Clues was one of the earliest reasons why he decided to pursue singing.
Original host Steve Burns was present and involved in choosing his replacement, and Joshua admitted that he was starstruck when he met Steve because he has been watching Blue’s Clues since he was a kid.
“I had the great honor of being a part of the search for the new host, and I give Josh two thumbs up…he can definitely fill my shoes, and the rugby shirt,” Steve says.
Joshua also let it slip that the show’s reboot will feature a new handy dandy notebook, something for the younger generation to look forward to once the show finally airs.
‘Blue’s Clues & You’ is Joshua’s debut on the small-screen as a series regular, since he already appeared in a couple of TV shows.
