  • There is a 2-disc PC game made from Humongous Entertainment based on the episode under a similar name.
    • The game maintains the essence of the story, but made a lot of alterations for gameplay.
  • This is the only time the intro of the show was interrupted.
    • It started when Steve was about to ask the viewers where Blue was when Mailbox called out, Mailtime.

    • Rue McClanahan (Steve's Grandmother) was credited for Special Guest Appearance.

    • On top of that, this is the first episode that this has happened.
  • The We Sat on Down song that Steve sings in this episode (in place of We Just Figured Out Blue's Clues) will become Joe's song that he sings when he is introduced to the program in late Season Four, although it will start reusing it in Steve Goes to College (the Season 4 finale episode).
  • This is the last episode to use the usual Thinking Chair tones from the previous two Seasons.

  • This is one of the only episodes where Steve doesn't say "We'll play Blue's Clues to figure out (insert question here)" before the song "We are Gonna Play Blue's Clues".

  • This episode marks as Nick Jr.'s primetime special.
  • This is the first episode where Steve does not get a video letter. Instead, he just gets a treasure chest with a map inside. The other was in Blue's Big Mystery, where he just gets a normal letter with a maple leaf inside.
  • There is no Kevin or Duarte version because the producers cannot find an actress to play Kevin/Duarte's Grandmother. However there was a UK version of Blue's Big Treasure Hunt, but only the book version.
  • A re-recorded footage of Steve's dialogue is used so that Mailbox can interrupt him that it is Mailtime.
    • This is one of the three episodes in Season 3 to use a re-recorded footage of Steve's dialogue instead of the one used in Season 1 & 2. The other two being Blue's Big Holiday and The Wrong Shirt.

  • This episode will be remade in the reboot, titled Treasure Hunt with Blue.
