- This is the second episode in which The Viewer is a clue, the first being the Blue's Clues episode "I'm So Happy!", around at 18 years before this episode.
- Like last time, Blue actually was seen sticking the pawprint on the viewer.
- This is second episode to have Steve in the reboot. It's also the first episode featuring him since Meet Josh!, and the first time he comes in season 2, and the only time he appears in 2020.
- This is Joe's 5th appearance in the reboot.
- This is also the third holiday episode with Joe. The other two were "Blue's First Holiday" and "Holiday Wishes."
- Santa and his reindeer appear as shadows flying over the buildings. Santa also says "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night" which is the last line from the story "The Night Before Christmas."
- Unlike other holiday episodes, this one focuses on solely Christmas.
- This is the first reboot episode where The So Long Song was not sung.
- This is the first Season 2 episode in the reboot series to not have a wrong answer.
- Most likely there was no possible wrong answer for those clues.
- Josh does not interact with Sidetable Drawer, because he has his notebook/phone with him already, this is the 5th time this has happened.
- This is the second time an adult is in a video letter.
- The first time being "Welcome to Blue's Bistro."
- Josh’s Footages for the Blue's Clues & You! Theme Song is rerecorded for this episode.
- Josh's voice seems to be very high pitched in this episode at some points.
- This marks the eighth episode in the franchise where music was drawn. The others being Blue's Favorite Song, Song Time with Blue, What's Inside?, The Scavenger Hunt, Story Wall, and Bluestock (original/remake).
- Blue pulls out Josh's regular notebook instead of the Christmas notebook.
- This was like the original series for all the different variants of the notebook except for the Birthday notebook.
