Blues Clues

This is very exciting news. Things aren't 100% yet, but the creators of Blues Clues contacted me to be a guest on one of their episodes. My daughter is a huge fan of the show and I've always appreciated the show's combination of clever learning for kids and a joke or two thrown in that the parents will appreciate.

This is good for me also, I don't want to be anything but an Intergalactic Gladiator, but spinning that career off into other areas has always held my interest. It's just like when The Ramones were in Rock And Roll High School or Hulk Hogan was in Bad Hulk Hogan Movie #1, Bad Hulk Hogan Movie #2 and Bad Hulk Hogan Movie #4.

So like I said, this isn't for certain yet, but I do have the part of the script that features me. I reprinted it below for you to see:

[Door bell rings]
Joe: I wonder who that could be. [Joe walks to door] Look, It's Jon, The Intergalactic Gladiator.
Jon: Hi Joe, I was just in the neigboorhood and I wanted to stop by to say hello.
Joe: Say, what's that?
Jon: [Hefting ax] Oh, this is my Vibro-Ax. I use it dispatch my opponents.
Joe: What's that on it?
Jon: Hey, that looks like a pawprint. A blue pawprint!
Joe: That's our third clue! [Shuts door and sits down in thinking chair] What could Blue want with a picture of my face, a ripe melon split in two, and an ax?

As you can see from the rough draft, it's a small part, but looks like it will be a lot of fun -- I've never been in a cartoon before. It will also be interesting to see what the three clues turn out to be.

I find that small blue creature very compelling.

I think your daughter will be pleasantly surprised.

Maybe Blue wants to share a melon with a hammerhead shark?
