If you're a child of the '90s or '00s, then you SURELY grew up watching Blue's Clues — and you probably know all the words to the iconic song "Mail Time," which Steve sang whenever he was getting ready to open his letters.
Well, last year, Nickelodeon rebooted Blue's Clues with a new host, Josh (who is, frankly, adorable). And while much of what made the old show special has carried over into the current version, there is one major change to "Mail Time" that has millennials and Gen Z'ers VERY UPSET.
Specifically, people are disturbed to learn that Blue gets emails now. This fact was first brought to the internet's attention thanks to @MissLady_Leah, whose tweet on the subject has gone massively viral:
Don't believe it? Here's a clip of Josh doing "Mail Time." He opens up Mailbox, finds nothing inside, and then breaks into a brand-new song: "We just got an email."
Oh, and that's not the only technological update to the show. Josh reads his emails right off of his "handy-dandy notebook," which is actually a tablet now:
All of these changes are making people feel very, very old:
Some are feeling downright betrayed:
And more than a few people are feeling bad for poor Mailbox, who might be out of a job now:
Listen, I'm sure the new Blue's Clues is wonderful, and it makes sense to update things for the world we live in today! Still, I'm gonna need a minute to process this information. Please respect my privacy during this time.
