Each episode is a remake of one of the episodes from the original show. The show follows the same format as the original, except instead of either Steve or Joe finding each of the clues Blue marks with paw prints, it's their cousin Josh who does this. Also, instead of the characters being animated in cutout or clay animation, they are now CGI-animated.
Similar to it's predecessor series, the show has proven itself to be a hit with preschoolers in the 2010s and 2020s. It was renewed for a second season on November 20, 2019, just 9 days after its premiere, then renewed again for a third season on February 19, 2020.
- Adapted Out: This seems to be the case with Green Puppy, as remakes of any episodes that involved her so far have Magenta take her place.
- The Cameo: Steve and Joe both have two cameos in the pilot episode.
- Canon Dis Continuity: This series ignores the events of the original series episode The Legend of the Blue Puppy and all episodes after that, as well as the Blue's Room spin-off.
- Early Installment Weirdness: At the beginning of the series, Blue and the other animated characters were animated in a pseudo-stop motion-like style. This was quickly dropped after just a few episodes.
- Expressive Ears: In Sad Day with Blue, Blue is gloomy as a result of Magenta knocking her blocks down, and her ears are drooped over for most of the episode.
- Everything's Better with Sparkles: Whenever Blue and Josh skidoo, or Blue announces that she wants to play Blue's Clues, sparkles appear.
- Fake Interactivity: Like in the original series, characters will ask the viewers a question and give them time to think and answer.
- Foreshadowing: Early on in the episode Big News with Blue, Mr. Salt mutters the words "Sage" and "Ginger." He's trying to figure out what to name the newly born twins he and Mrs. Pepper had.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Unlike its parent series, almost all of the episodes are titled as X with Blue.
- Innocently Insensitive: Magenta knocks over Blue's block tower several times in Sad Day with Blue, though she's just being playful and doesn't appear to realize how much she's upsetting Blue until the latter talks it out with her.
- Medium Blending: A mix of live action and CGI.
- Negative Continuity:
- Despite this series apparently taking place after the original show, Magenta is first seen without glasses (just like the beginning of the original series)...and then she gets glasses again.
- In the original show, Blue was given a turtle as a birthday gift. In this series, she gets that same turtle as a birthday gift.
- Roger Rabbit Effect: Just like in the original series, Josh interacts with animated characters.
- Sequel Series: To Blue's Clues of course.
- Setting Update:
- Since most people today don't have landlines in their homes like they did in the 90s and 2000s, Sidetable Drawer doesn't have the red landline phone on her head anymore.
- The Handy Dandy Notebook now doubles as a smart phone, but Josh still draws the clues on paper with a crayon.
- Mailbox now delivers emails in addition to letters.
- Vague Age: Blue's age is still unknown; she looks exactly the same as before even though Paprika and Cinnamon have aged. In one episode, she has her first day of school (again).
