‘Blue’s Clues’ Has a New Host and Name

  • Variety
Nickelodeon has found a new human companion for Blue, the animated canine who tries to lead kiddie viewers to pre-school literacy.

The Viacom kids-media unit intends to launch a new season of “Blue’s Clues,” which first debuted in 1996., with a new host and name. The revival, which will be called “Blue’s Clues & You,” and run on the Nick Jr. cable network aimed at pre-schoolers, stars Broadway actor Joshua Dela Cruz and will launch production this month in Toronto. The new season will consist of 20 episodes.

Dela Cruz is, in a way, picking up a baton. Original host Steve Burns helped producers search for the new host. “I had the great honor of being a part of the search for the new host, and I give Josh two thumbs up!” Burns said in a statement. “He can definitely fill my shoes, and the rugby shirt.”

Fire Up the Sundae Slide, Nickelodeon Is Bringing Back ‘Double Dare’

All aboard the nostalgia train! Nickelodeon is bringing back the kids game show Double Dare. The original series is also Nick's longest-running one, from 1986 to 1993. It ushered in an era where physically-oriented game shows dominated the scene, from Guts to Legends of the Hidden Temple. Sadly, those all went by the wayside in the early 2000s, with only a few established TV series on broadcast, like American Ninja Warrior, occasionally running a "junior" event. But for those who long for the glory days of making kids pick a giant human nose, or careen down a …

Why did kids have such a hard time on Legends Of The Hidden Temple?

  • The AV Club
Nickelodeon’s Legends Of The Hidden Temple was basically American Gladiators with children and an archaeologic twist, with kids completing obstacle courses and answering trivia questions to uncover the secrets behind the temples. Serving as the announcer and the guardian of the temples was voice actor Dee Bradley…

Mike O’Malley Looks Back on Hosting ‘Nickelodeon’s Guts’ 25 Years Later (Exclusive)

Mike O’Malley Looks Back on Hosting ‘Nickelodeon’s Guts’ 25 Years Later (Exclusive)
Some people might have forgotten that Mike O’Malley, who played Kurt Hummel’s dad and made you cry with his fatherly talks during six seasons of Glee, used to be a Nickelodeon game show host.

“I took the job very seriously,” O’Malley tells Et about hosting the ‘90s sports competition series Guts, now celebrating its 25th anniversary. O’Malley, 50, was 24 years old when he landed the job. “I looked at the part like I was playing the role of an older brother. Like a cool camp counselor. I loved working with the kids.”

Each episode filmed on Stage 21 at Universal Studios Florida featured three teenage athletes competing against each other in four "extreme" versions of athletic events. In the final round, they raced up a “mountain” called the Aggro Crag, later renamed to Mega Crag. The show aired on Nickelodeon during a tween programming block that also included Legends of the Hidden Temple and Nick

‘Nickelodeon Guts’: What You Didn’t Know About the Kids Sports Competition

‘Nickelodeon Guts’: What You Didn’t Know About the Kids Sports Competition
Do-do-do-do you have it?!

Twenty-five years ago today, ‘90s kids discovered something they didn’t know they needed: a piece of the Aggro Crag.

Alas, no one could simply circle it in the Toys ‘R’ Us holiday catalog. If you really wanted a piece of the mountain, later called the Mega Crag in season three, you had to don the blue, purple, or red uniform as a competitor on Nickelodeon Guts.

Flashback: Revisit Your Favorite Pop Culture Moments With Et

Amongst the tween programming block that also included Legends of the Hidden Temple and Nick Arcade, the series has come to represent an era of a specific genre of TV that has yet to be successfully replicated. An action competition show, young players were given the chance to perform in a literal sports fantasy, provided they didn’t mind doing it on national television. Today, nostalgia for the series is alive and well within its original demographic

In Kirk Fogg We Trust: New Legends of the Hidden Temple Sneak Peek Brings Back the Khaki Shorts

In Kirk Fogg We Trust: New Legends of the Hidden Temple Sneak Peek Brings Back the Khaki Shorts
Watch out for those temple guards! Nickelodeon is about to bring back Legends of the Hidden Temple in the best way possible, and E! News has your first look at Kirk Fogg back in action.  Ok, the best way to bring Legends of the Hidden Temple back would be to make it a game show that adults were allowed to participate in, but this movie is probably the next best way.  Fogg, who hosted the game show for all three seasons (and 120 episodes) returns to play himself, the long-time tour guide of the hidden temple. The movie follows three siblings who join Fogg and the great Olmec (Dee Bradley Baker, also returning) to get through a real-life obstacle course that will help them prove the legends of the...

Legends Of The Hidden Temple TV Movie Gets Premiere Date

It’s not just theatrical movies (like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek Beyond, or Jumanji) that are currently trading on nostalgia. Small screen projects are also following suit. Nickelodeon is planning perhaps the most significant of these, with a TV movie based on the popular 1990s game show, Legends Of The Hidden Temple – which now has a premiere date.

Originally created by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and Stephen Brown in 1993, Legends Of The Hidden Temple ran for 120 episodes – each featuring six teams of two 11-14 year olds. The teams competed to find and collect artefacts in a temple filled with treasures, guarded by Mayan protectors. To succeed, the competitors would have to answer questions and undertake physical tasks. The show was hosted by Kirk Fogg, and featured narration from Dee Bradley Baker in the guise of a talking stone head named Olmec.

The New Legends of the Hidden Temple Trailer Is More Intense Than Putting Together The Shrine of The Silver Monkey

The New Legends of the Hidden Temple Trailer Is More Intense Than Putting Together The Shrine of The Silver Monkey
Open wide, '90s bbs. Here's your giant dose of nostalgia for today. If you were a Nickelodeon child back in the day, you'll be pleased to know that Nick just released a new trailer for their Legends of the Hidden Temple movie! Yes, they made a movie out of the TV show, in case you've been living under a hidden temple. Get it? Ha. Sorry. Anyway, the film stars original show host Kirk Fogg (thank you, nostalgia Gods), along with Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer. The story revolves around three siblings, who get caught up in some serious temple madness. The trailer is a whole lot darker than the one before, but it still has all of the much-needed nods to the '90s show. Get v...

Watch: Ridiculously Cheesy Legends Of The Hidden Temple Movie Trailer

Early this year, we learned that Nickelodeon was reviving the classic '90s game show Legends of The Hidden Temple as a TV movie. As Mick said when he wrote about the movie's posters, this looks "unbelievably corny" — but I don't even think he was prepared for exactly how cheesy this thing turned out to be.

The network released a new trailer today (via Buzzfeed), and...well, take a look:

Like I said...ridiculously cheesy. The text and the score try to make it seem like it's going to be an adventure with an epic scope, but they're clearly hampered by a tiny budget and those sets barely look better than the ones from the old game show itself. If you plan on checking this out, it premieres on Nickelodeon on Saturday, November 26th at 8pm Est.

‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ Revived at Nickelodeon as TV Movie

‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ Revived at Nickelodeon as TV Movie
Everyone’s favorite wallaby, talking cow and neurotic turtle are returning to TV.

Nickelodeon announced Thursday afternoon it has ordered a TV movie of “Rocko’s Modern Life,” the cartoon comedy which originally aired on the channel in the mid-’90s.

Rocko, Heffer and Filburt will all return to O-Town, though voice casting has yet to be confirmed for the revival.

“What I have found by bringing these characters back is that it’s not so much about nostalgia, but a sense that they still feel relevant and fresh to me, and after 20 years, they can’t wait to comment on modern life in the 21st century,” creator Joe Murray said in a statement. “They still have a lot to say.”

Nickelodeon already has two other major revivals in the works. “Legends of the Hidden Temple” will return this fall and a “Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie” is planned

Emily S. Whitten: Nickelodeon and Nostalgia @ Sdcc 2016

  • Comicmix
As you undoubtedly know, San Diego’s Comic-Con International happened this past weekend, and I was fortunate to be amongst the tens of thousands of attendees. There was, as always, a mega-ton to see and do, and it was hard to keep the Fomo (Fear Of Missing Out) from getting completely out of control over the 4.5 days of the con. To stay sane, though, at some point you just have to accept that you’re going to miss a bunch, and focus on what you do have the opportunity to see.

This year, one of my main interests was what Nickelodeon was showcasing. Of course, Nickelodeon is always on my radar, and particularly the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, which I adore. But even beyond the coolness that is the Tmnt, this year, Nickelodeon was focusing on its past – in the best way possible. Through its late-night programming block of “The Splat,
