  • This and Story Time were both produced by Nick Jr. and Paramount Pictures on June 9, 1998. But even so, Arts and Crafts is considered to be the very first official Blue's Clues home video ever (Story Time is often considered to be the second).
  • These episodes from this VHS release were also included as a bonus on the DVD releases of Shapes and Colors! and Story Time, and as regulars on Classic Clues and the DVD release of this video.
  • The credit sequence's music for Story Time, as used from "What Story Does Blue Want to Play?", was reused for the credit sequence of this video.
  • The promo where Face tells fruit jokes was originally used to announce that Nick Jr. was over for the day (the only difference for the original was that when Face said "I have to make like a banana and split, ...", he added "...but I'll see you again tomorrow on Nick Jr.!").
    • This segment was previously seen on the 1998 VHS of Little Bear: "Parties & Picnics" and would later be seen on the 2001 VHS Dora the Explorer: Swing into Action.
  • The Nick Jr. VHS Song trailer promoting home videos for Gullah Gullah Island, Little Bear (also known as Maurice Sendak's Little Bear), and Allegra's Window was an edited version of a 1997 song promo that also featured scenes from The Busy World of Richard Scarry, Blue's Clues, and Rupert.
