2000 Awards
Blues Clues Series
( Paramount $12.95 Score: ) Preschoolers love being in the know by finding Blue's clues before Steve, the host, finds them. New for 2001, Blue's Safari, which centers on identifying animals and looks at how adult animals care for their babies, is our top pick this year. In Magenta Comes Over, viewers are asked to pair related costumes, e.g., those of a lifeguard and a swimmer, and an umpire and a baseball player. One of the pairings is an astronaut and a four-eyed alien. We question the importance of four-eyed aliens for preschoolers! Other than that, it's on the mark. Blue's Big Musical Adventure is 78 mins. long! That's a lot of Blue with big musical numbers. The cast is planning to put on a show and Steve's searching for Blue's singing partner. Closed-captioned. 2-5 Still top rated: Blue's Clues Rhythm and Blue, PLATINUM AWARD '00 and Blue's Clues Story Time, PLATINUM AWARD '99. Thumbs down for Blue's Big Treasure Hunt, ABC's, and 123's, which takes a wrong-headed turn in the road. This is not the audience for reading and spelling lessons!
