Rue McClanahan (Steve's Grandmother) was credited for Special Guest Appearance.
The last four notes played in the instrumental version of We Sat on Down sounds the same as the last four notes played at the end credits of the Cinar animated series, "The Little Lulu Show" that aired from 1995-1999.
Steve and Blue skidooed together into The Land of Great Discovery.
The Land of Great Discovery itself (especially its entrance), is very similar to Wonderland.
This is the only episode featuring Steve where the characters do not join in after figuring out Blue's Clues.
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.
The rest of this season's episodes will have newly recorded Thinking Chair tones from that point on.
This is one of the only instances where Steve has a different design on the notebook relating to what the show is about.
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". Instead, he said that Blue always knows the answers to Blue's Clues. However, he did say the original phrase after singing the song.
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 could not find an actress to play Kevin/Duarte's Grandmother.
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 is the first time that Blue does not join in with the Mailtime song.
This is the first and only time Steve sings We Sat On Down, as well as the first episode to feature it.
This is the only episode where Mailtime happens at the beginning before playing Blue's Clues.
In this episode, the viewers don't know what yo-yo starts with, so they say the question "Why?", instead, but as a matter of fact, Steve calls it "The Letter Y".
After Steve says "The Letter Y", Mrs. Pepper writes it under the blank in the frame being zoomed out, but not in.
