Blue's Room is an American children's animated/live action/puppet show television series originally broadcast on Nickelodeon as part of the Nick Jr. block. It is a spin-off series of the popular Blue's Clues series, and was created by Traci Paige Johnson and Angela C. Santomero. It started as a short segment that came near the end of the last Blue's Clues episodes in Season 6.
The series centers around the title character and host of the show, Blue, a female blue dog. Blue often interacts with her friends including Sprinkles, Blue's shy little brother who was introduced in the second season, Roar E. Sauras (or simply Roary), an orange dinosaur who likes to practice roaring, Frederica, a purple doll who likes to pretends it's her birthday, and Polka Dots, a sea-foam plush toy who create puzzles for others to solve. Together, they go on adventures, solve different problems, and use their imagination.
