  • Question: What does Blue want to sing in the concert?

  • Answer: Old MacDonald Had a Farm


  • Jennifer Brown is credited as Jennifer Michelle Brown in this episode, the same relative of Content Consultant Laura G. Brown, Ph.D.
  • This is the last episode for a couple of things:
  • This is the second episode where the Old MacDonald song is the answer to Blue's Clues. The first time was in "Blue's Favorite Song."
  • This is the fifth episode where the cheers and applause sound effect is heard. The first four are Blue's Big Musical Movie, 100th Episode Celebration, Joe's Clues, and Playdates (The latter 2 are also season 6 episodes).
  • The instrumental tune of We Sat On Down was heard for a second time with the lyrics added. The first time it happened it was in Blue's Big Treasure Hunt.
  • This marks the only appearance of They Might Be Giants.
  • In this episode, this is the only episode where Joe uses the kazoo to remember the clues, instead of the notebook.
  • The "A Clue!" line was previously heard in Mailbox's Birthday.
  • This is Joe's version of Blue's Big Musical (Movie).
  • The letter is from the band "They Might Be Giants."
  • The name Bluestock is a parody of Woodstock, a real-life music festival.
  • The clapping clip is similar to the clip from Blue Wants to Play a Song Game.
  • They Might Be Giants - Clap Your Hands from Here Come the ABCs bonus track on DVD and CD after this song they scream in the video letter.
  • Throughout this episode, Joe blows into the wrong end of the kazoo.
  • When Joe sings the song that is the answer to Blue's Clues, he sings all of the quarter notes as eighth notes.
  • The Blue's Clues Theme Song goes down a semitone (the same as seasons 1-5) and back to its original pitch in this episode. This is only sixth season episode for the Play Blue's Clues song be to in G major.
  • All of the songs in this episode, with the exception of the Blue's Clues Theme Song and We Sat On Down, are new versions of previous Blue's Clues songs sung by three different characters and three celebrities.
  • Joe wears a purple squared shirt for most of this episode, but he changes into an orange squared shirt for the Old MacDonald song.
  • This episode and 100th Episode Celebration are not available on iTunes. However, they are both available on Amazon Prime, VHS, and DVD.
  • This episode was later remade in Blue's Clues & You! of the same name. While the episode has Josh featured, Joe also appears in this episode.
  • The song "Clap Your Hands" was also in Playhouse Disney Commercial Breaks from 2005.
  • This is the only episode not to use the notebook.
  • This episode bids farewell to the last of the regular character appearances in the credits: Blue's new upside-down and peeking animations, Periwinkle, Sidetable Drawer, Mailbox, Tickety, Key, and Moona.
  • Mr. Salt appears by himself and without Mrs. Pepper.
  • This is the last episode to have the Blue's Room segment.
  • This is the only time Joe gets up from the thinking chair while singing We Sat on Down.


  • When Joe sang We Sat on Down, the sky went dark like night while the stage was dark and a spotlight was shining on Joe while he was singing. When the song was done the lights turned back on and the sky suddenly turns light blue as if it was daytime. This goof can be seen on 16:9 ratio screens, because the sky is cut out on the fullscreen version.
  • When Joe catches up Sidetable Drawer and our music sheet could we give us our notebook we can't play blue's clues without our notebook.
