'Blue’s Clues & You!' Season 3 to Introduce Rainbow Puppy, Voiced By Brianna Bryan

Nickelodeon has announced the PAWsome news that Blue’s Clues & You! season three will introduce viewers to a brand new character named Rainbow Puppy!

Voiced by Brianna Bryan (Craig of the Creek, This Is Us), Rainbow Puppy is a charismatic, confident puppy from the city with a vibrant personality to match her colorful fur. She'll make her first appearance in the brand new Blue’s Clues & You! episode “Our New Neighbor” premiering on Friday, October 1, at 11 a.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon.

Rainbow Puppy will appear throughout season three and will also be featured prominently in Nickelodeon's brand-new movie that was recently greenlit as part of the beloved show's 25th Anniversary celebration.

BSCKids recently talked to Bryan to celebrate her new role. You can check out a few excerpts from the interview below, and read the interview in full at!

How did you get the role of Rainbow Puppy and give us a description of the character in your words?

I went through a super fun audition process including a special callback, where I was really encouraged to be in the role. I love to sing, so when I was asked to sing during some of the lines, I really felt like I was able to embrace the role and be authentic to not only my character’s vibrant personality, but I’d like to think my own too! My character is bright, playful, creative, kind, curious, and colorful and is always excited for new adventures 🙂

How do you get ready to record your lines for the character?

I would prep ahead of time by reading my lines a few times before my sessions to be prepared, but just enough so I can act them out in a very spontaneous and realistic way. I would practice my music even more so that I could sing the notes fluently and also have ideas in my head for possible harmonies- something I LOVE to add to my singing!

How much did you know about Blue’s Clues before getting the part? Did you watch all of the previous seasons of the show?

Oh my gosh!! I am a huge fan too!! I’ve grown up with Blue’s Clues and always remembered it as being one of the most prominent shows of my childhood. My parents even got me and my sister our own authentic “Thinking Chairs” when we were little!!! I also used my special notebook all the time even while watching the show! I feel like I know Blue and Magenta so well, and felt so ready to bring Rainbow Puppy to life with her big voice and brilliant personality!

Why do you think Blue’s Clues has stood the test of time?

Blue’s Clues has always been such a relatable show for children and families. And on top of that, the lessons that are taught in the show are done so in such a creative and fun way. It’s really a show that takes life situations and simplifies them for children to understand more fully, yet also spins the learning experience into a unique kind of puzzle and challenge. It’s such an original concept.

What does a “normal” day look like for you when you are working on the show?

A normal day would consist of waking up early, drinking some tea, doing my vocal lessons while sipping water, and prepping my recording setup. I use my iPad to read my script and have a handy dandy notebook on the side to take my acting notes during each session. My computer is also set up to run all of my programs for recording live. It was super interesting doing some of my sessions during the pandemic because I got to learn how to be my own “Sound Engineer.” I love the process so much!

If you had to guest star/guest voice on another currently running Nickelodeon show, which one would it be and why?

I would love to be on PAW Patrol! I really support how the show is community-oriented and motivates kids to stand up for each other and protect those they love so heroically. It’s another show that is full of amazing messages to learn from.
