Blue's Clues is an American children's television show that premiered on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2006. The show is about a dog named Blue and her owner, Steve. The show later moved to a new actor for the owner who went by Joe, and the UK version of the show had an owner named Kevin.
Due to the show's popularity, two Korean adaptations of the series were made: one named "수수께끼 블루" (translation: "Blue Puzzle") which aired on KBS2, and another named "블루스 클루스" (translation: "Blue's Clues") which aired on Nickelodeon. Not much is known about the KBS2 version, for only a brief clip was seen during the 2006 special "Behind the Clues: 10 Years With Blue," which can be viewed in the Gallery below.
One thing that is known is that Steve is replaced by a character with the name "HyunShup Shin", which the same thing was done in the U.K. English dub, where Steve is replaced by Kevin. So far there are only two clips of footage of it online. Blue's Clues can still be seen on the Korean Nickelodeon website, but the Nickelodeon Korean dub is just a dub of the American English dub.
Little has been found about either version of the show. A Korean blogger fixed a tape with a Korean version of Blue's Clues on it and uploaded some screenshots and a clip from the tape. These screenshots can be viewed in the Gallery below.
