Blue's Clues & You! Hanukkah Special

It’s important for kids to see themselves represented in multimedia as well as books, and every Hanukkah we love sharing a roundup of movies and TV shows featuring Hanukkah episodes. This year, there’s a new one to add to the list: “A Blue’s Clues Festival of Lights.” Kids can play Blue’s Clues along with Josh as the whole gang celebrates Hanukkah at Periwinkle’s house. Look for this special episode coming to Nickelodeon on Friday, November 26, 2021 at 12/11 Central.

If you were a kid in the 90's (or just a kid at heart), you likely spent a lot of Friday nights or slumber parties watching cartoons on Nickelodeon. Now you can revel in your own nostalgia while sharing the magic of Tommy Pickles and his pals with your own kids.

Peg + Cat: The Hanukkah Problem

Peg and Cat's friend Al (Albert Einstein) invites them over for Hanukkah. There's singing, dancing, counting, and a lot of science. PBS Kids does a great job representing Hanukkah with their holiday specials. You can also find Hanukkah episodes of Super Why and Arthur. We're trying to track down the elusive episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood that features Hanukkah, Winter Magic. Parents (and the internet) tell us it exists, let us know if you've seen it somewhere. You can also buy a full playlist of PBS Kids' Hanukkah episodes on iTunes.

Clifford's Puppy Days: The Big, Big Present/Hanukkah Plunder Blunder

Both mini episodes focus on Hanukkah and the traditions associated with it. When Clifford the puppy and his kitten pals break Mr. Solomon's menorah, they also learn a valuable lesson about telling the truth. 

Available onAmazon, Netflix

Grownups and teens can check out The Goldberg's Hanukkah special, A Christmas Story. In this episode from season three, mom Beverly goes overboard trying to match her Hanukkah festivities with the neighbor's Christmas celebrations. A heart to heart with "Pops" helps the entire family connect with and celebrate Hanukkah properly.
