Growing up, I would often rewatch many episodes of Blues Clues via the VHS videos my father had bought the family. Because cassettes didn’t have a quick access menu, you were forced to either sit through the previews or fast forward through them, though the latter had the potential risk of damaging the tape.
Regardless, when it came to Blues Clues I never once considered fast-forwarding as the previews were often advertisements for the various Peanuts animated specials that had become popular through television reruns. Classics like It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Even though I had never watched any of them all the way through, there was just something about seeing passionate parents and kids talk about their love for the series while having the hand-drawn animation and Vince Guaraldi’s iconic music play throughout
