Picks and Pans Review: Blue's Clues

UPDATED 06/15/1998 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 06/15/1998 at 01:00 AM EDT

Nickelodeon (Sun., June 14, 8 p.m. ET)

Steven Burns, the Mister Rogers-like host of this weekday children's series, turns up in prime time to throw a birthday party for his cartoon dog Blue. Burns may be a soothing (and crooning) presence to his preschool audience. To this grown-up, however, he comes off like a hyperactive camp counselor. Far less resistible is Blue, a frisky yet winsome canine who, after opening a present from her viewers—a tiny blue toy dog—trots up to us and licks the screen. Awwww.

Bottom Line: Puppy love at first sight
