  • Word Jump does not appear at the end of the episode because she was very busy.
  • This is the first episode with word labels
  • This is the first episode under construction
  • This is the first episode to be a remake of a season 2 episode.
  • This is the first episode where Sage and Ginger are crying.
  • The e-mail is similar to the video letter from "Blue's Story Time," but the puppet show about the Oogla Boogla is shown as a storybook.
  • As of this episode, this is the last episode until "Getting Glasses with Magenta" where Josh gets an Email, thus, this is the last time we hear the song We Just Got An Email until "Getting Glasses with Magenta."
  • Josh does an impression of Superman in this episode while saying “That way!”


  • Sidetable and Mailbox have labels in this episode, but Snail doesn't. In the original episode, it was the other way around.
  • Josh had his name on the back of his shirt like Steve did but spelled his name instead of Steve.
  • The original episode had Steve whisper-reading “The Boy & His Puppy” from A Really Great Book to himself, but in the remake, Josh reads “The Boy & His Puppy” from A Really Great Book out loud to the viewer. The remake also had music to go along with “The Boy & His Puppy” story.
  • The part where Steve and Blue read "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" was omitted.
  • The original episode's paw print cleanup involved Steve drawing the letter P on the paw print, then it pops by itself. In this episode, Josh poked the paw print and caused it to pop, leaving the word "POP" (which also starts with P) behind in the same color as the paw print behind, which also popped.
  • Steve’s notebook was labeled on the back. Josh’s was labeled on the front.
  • The moon that was the 1st clue was in a book about space and planets instead of a dictionary.
  • Sage and Ginger are with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper instead of Paprika.
  • Blue helps with the grocery list, unlike the original.
  • Juice was not included on the grocery list in this episode, but it appeared in place of the eggs in the cabinet where the milk was found.
  • In the original episode, the milk and the cereal had their names on them, while the bread had its label positioned diagonally, the banana had its label on its inner curve, and the labels for the brownie and pineapple are round with wavy edges. In this episode, all of the food have labels are positioned and shaped straight and square.
  • The cow representing the 2nd clue was a drawing instead of a picture, and the pictures of a cantaloupe and cake were replaced by drawings of an apple and book respectively.
  • When Steve drew the cow, he didn’t say, "the face" or, "a splotch on her back".
  • The cow that Steve drew had a circle body instead of an oval.
  • Steve didn’t say anything when he drew the cow’s tail.
  • Blue has cards to sing along to the Mailtime song, but the viewers aren't heard singing along to the words.
    • In the reboot, Blue barks after the Mailtime song was finished. In the original, she did not bark.
    • In the original, Steve also didn't sing the "Mail" at the end of the song, but in the reboot Josh does sing it.
  • In the original episode, Mailbox delivered the letters A, B, and C in addition to the video letter. In this episode, he only delivers the letter E because Josh has an e-mail.
    • Josh does not point out the word play Mailbox uses with "Letters" nor does he call Mailbox a funny guy, both of which, Steve did in the original.
      • This shows that Josh doesn't seem to get the "Letters" joke.
  • In the original episode, "The Girl and The Puppy" was in a different font.
  • The girl in the story actually speaks when she says "Hi". She also doesn't mind when the ball throws her.
  • When the the girl said, "Hi," her mouth didn't move.
  • In the original when the Girl and the Puppy was read, the 3 sentences faded away after they were read a little at a time. In the reboot, all 3 sentences were together.
  • No one other than Josh and Blue came to read "Hey Diddle Diddle". Not even Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, Paprika, Sage and Ginger, or the word, "Jump".
  • In the original when the Viewer read, "The cow jumped over the moon," the cow mooed as the Viewer read the sentence and then when the Viewer read, "the moon," the cow mooed loud and long and she went back to her spot.
  • In the original, Steve wrote the J in jump with a line on top. In the reboot, Josh wrote J without the line on top.
  • In the original, Steve asked if the moon jumped but remained crooked. In the remake, it actually jumped for real.
  • The ball used in the sing-along of the So Long Song came from Steve's pocket and looked more like Blue's, but in this episode it appears from offscreen and looked like the one from "The Girl and the Puppy".
  • Blue has cards to sing along to the We Just Figured Out Blue's Clues song, but the viewers aren't heard singing along to the words.
  • In the original, Steve didn't tickle Paprika and Paprika didn't cry. In the reboot, Josh tickled Sage and Ginger and they giggled.
  • In the original, during the Mail Time segment it had the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Book, whereas in the remake it doesn't.
