Although May is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Month, it’s never too early to start celebrating. The current host of the Nick Jr. show, Blues & You, Joshua Dela Cruz is the first Asian host of the series and he definitely brings Filipino pride. Viewers have seen his Lola visit in episodes like in “Blue’s Big Baking Show” where they bake bibingka together and share traditions, bringing more awareness to Filipino culture.
Now, Josh and his Lola are back teaming up for a karaoke session singing about being Filipino. The catchy tune shares lyrics about what it means to be Filipino like spending time with family, joining in a song, and feeling the love whenever visiting the Philippines. The video shows different kinds of Filipino foods, the national flag, and an animated version of the picturesque beaches found throughout the islands. Blue and friends join in on the fun so check it all out below!

Get ready to feel nostalgic! Paramount+ and Nickelodeon are gearing up to release a new Blue’s Clues movie with none other than Blue’s current friend and Fil-Am Josh Dela Cruz! The film, Blue’s Big City Adventure is bringing back another trio much like Spider-Man: No Way Home! Steve Burns and Donovan Patton (Joe) are also set to appear alongside Josh as the movie is bringing together three generations worth of Blue’s Clues hosts.
It’s exciting to see how all three hosts will interact with Blue and hopefully other characters. Paramount+ teased a photo still of the film where we catch Steve, Josh, Joe, and Blue possibly lost in the city. It’s basically everyone’s childhood in a single photo. Stay tuned for more details and its official release date sometime this year.
Blue’s Clues and You is the 2019 reboot to original Blue’s Clues that aired from 1996-2006. Josh Dela Cruz, the current host has been sharing Filipino traditions and guests with viewers, bringing more diversity to the show. Last year, his Lola stopped by with bibingka and sharing the meaning behind the custom of “mano po.”
Most recently, H.E.R. appeared on the show as a purple T-Rex who helped kids learn the different kinds of dinosaurs. She sang her way along with Blue as Josh and Blue traveled to the “Age of Dinosaurs.”
It’s so exciting to see Steve, Joe, and Josh reunite in a single film that will have audiences remembering their childhoods. Don’t forget to grab your pen and pad when Blue’s Big City Adventure releases this year!
