    • Thirdly, there was no Blue Skidoo segment.
  • Pieces of the mystery music used in this episode was from "What Does Blue Want to Do with Her Picture?".
  • This episode is the first of two on "Playtime with Periwinkle" VHS.
  • The "No" voiceover is used from "What Was Blue's Dream About?".
  • Catharine Mullally, Maggie McGuire, and Beth Mayerowitz all receive Special Thanks credits.
  • This is the second episode Steve doesn't get a video letter, he instead just gets a normal letter with a big maple leaf in it, the first episode was Blue's Big Treasure Hunt.
  • This episode introduces the character of Periwinkle, as voiced by Cameron Bowen. At first he is credited as one of "Steve's Friends" in the past, but is soon added to the list of cast credited along with the name of their character. At the start of fourth season, he is replaced by Kenny Kim as the voice of Periwinkle.
  • Just like What Is Blue Afraid Of?, this episode is considered spooky.

  • This is the first episode during the intro, the door of the house appears more purple.
  • This is one of the only times where Steve finds the clue just as fast as the viewer does (which was the third clue). The first time this happened was in What Does Blue Want to Do on a Rainy Day?, when he and the viewers both found a clue on a marching toy at the exact same time and he does it again in Blue's Big Musical, where he found a clue before the audience did. However, unlike the two, Steve doesn't tell the viewers that he found a clue just like them.
