Nickelodeon isn’t for cartoons anymore.
Nickelodeon celebrated Pride month with a Blue’s Clues & You sing-along about LGBTQIA+ families. And now TikTok is obsessed.
The children’s show debuted the “The Blue’s Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along” featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Nina West in late May.
In the uplifting tune, West and Blue sing about a rally full of all different kinds of animal families on floats featuring LGBTQIA+ parents and children.
“This family has two daddies / They love each other so proudly / And they all go marching in the big parade,” West sang. “Love is love is love, you see / And everyone should love proudly.”
TikTok user Ariella M. Elm shared the musical number and quickly went viral.
“If you really wanted to, you could have thought the Blue’s Clues’ ‘ABC’ song was being subtle. Yeah, this is not so subtle,” Elm joked in the clip. “Happy Pride, everyone.”
The TikTok received over 2.7 million views, with lots of people moved by all of the positive representation young children are receiving.
