Answer to Blue's Clues

Dress Up Day is the 19th episode of Blue's Clues from season 5.

Characters Present


The characters are playing dress up and we get to watch them, join in and have some fun pretending. The fun starts as Joe becomes an explorer and later dresses up as a robot. They see some of our favorite characters dress up as a crossing guard, an astronaut and more. Later, in the Skidoo segment, they help an ostrich to put on a play, finding the proper props and costumes to make the play work.


Coming soon.
