Summary

It's a big musical event when Joe and Blue have the Bluestock concert in the backyard. Famous artists are on hand, as are many old, familiar songs. Joe and Blue explore a variety of musical styles, from reggae to jazz. Blue also visits Blue's Room for a little Mozart, in the form of Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star. There, she learns quite literally just what the little star is.

Elements

  • Question: What does Blue want to sing in the concert?
  • Clues
    1. A Banjo Tune (C-C-C-G) (Old MacDonald)
    2. A Bass Tune (A-A-G) (Had a Farm)
    3. A Saxophone Tune (E-E-D-D-C) (E-I-E-I-O)
  • Answer: Old MacDonald Had a Farm

Trivia

  • This is the last episode for a couple of things:
    • The last episode to date to see Blue as a 2D animated character, as the reboot has her featured in CGI animation.
      • Outside of the Blue's Clues TV series, Blue was seen as a 2D animated character one last time in Nickelodeon's Mega Music Fest.
    • The last season 6 episode to air in 2004.
      • Some people could argue that this is the last episode of Blue's Clues, but this is technically not true, since Meet Blue's Baby Brother, while an episode of Blue's Room, is a crossover episode with the original show. Behind the Clues: 10 Years with Blue is actually a documentary, and Meet Blue's Baby Brother, as mentioned before, is actually a Blue's Room episode.
  • 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. The other time was in Blue's Big Treasure Hunt.
  • This marks the only appearance of They Might Be Giants.
  • In this episode, 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) in this episode.
  • 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.

Goofs

  • 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
