  • This is the first episode where Josh gets a letter instead of an email.
  • Felt Friends, Stamp Book and Snail have no lines in this episode.
  • An instrumental of the short counting song Steve sang in the original can be heard in Joe's present store.
  • Steve is mentioned in this episode.


  • Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper did not appear in the reboot, but they did in the original.
    • Due to this, the scene of counting apples with them was cut and omitted.
  • In the original episode, the viewers didn’t say “no” when Steve asked if we can leave this pawprint here, but in the remake, the viewers did say “no” when Josh asked if we can leave this pawprint here.
  • In the original, the paw print was not revealed in the ice cubes until after Steve counted the ices cubes, when the paw print was shown after the ice cubes moved, but it didn't in the remake.
    • Shovel and Pail took their and Paprika's place on the picnic blanket instead of running the lemonade stand (which was run by Joe)
  • Joe ran the present store like in "Meet Josh!" instead of Cash Register, who simply appeared as an inanimate object.
  • The presents Steve bought in the original episode were the same ones on the shelves. In this episode, Joe gave Josh duplicates of the ones seen on the shelves.
  • In the original, the crayon, socks, and hat were green due to being Steve's favorite color, Steve's notebook pages were below the crayon, there was a cushion instead of a pillow and there was a new notebook Steve style instead of blue being Josh's favorite color. In the remake, the crayon is blue and there was a plain old school notebook below.
  • In the original episode, Steve's hat was dark green with a picture of the Blue's Clues House. In this episode, Josh's hat is dark blue with a picture of a guitar.
    • This is most likely due to being filmed on a green screen.
  • In the original episode, Steve sings the So Long Song inside the house. Here in this episode, Josh sings it outside with Joe.
  • In the original episode, Steve tickled the paw print into getting off the screen. Here, Josh just waved as the paw print bounced away.
  • In the original episode, the second clue (a cup) was found in the kitchen. In this episode, it was found outside.
    • The number of other items are also different.
      • In the original there was one picnic basket with one picnic blanket and one baguette inside it, five cups (one has a paw print on it while the other four are stacked), four stacked plates, no napkins and ten spoons in two rows of five. In the reboot, there was one picnic basket with no picnic blankets (though it was later seen at the end) and two baguettes inside it, seven cups (one has a paw print on it while the other six are stacked in two stacks of three), eight stacked plates, seven stacked napkins and six spoons in two rows of three.
  • In the original episode, the third clue (lemons) were on real lemons. In this episode, they are on plush lemons in a bowl next to other plush fruits.
