Blue's Clues Wiki

Frustration happens to everyone, even characters in the Blue's Clues House, Fortunately, there is a way to deal with it, if you feel frustrated, the best thing to do is to stop, breathe, and think. Steve uses this idea when he has trouble keeping the picture by the Thinking Chair straight. This idea helps out Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper as well to make a cheese sandwich, celery with peanut butter and raisins, and cups for juice for the picnic. Later, we help out Rabbit who is frustrated about trying to balance things on a teeter-totter in US/Seesaw in the UK.
