Characters Present


Steve and Blue check out different types of bugs.


Steve and Blue are going on a bug watching expedition and we're invited to come along. We help them to spot many neat bugs and once we've found them, we learn more about them and also theorize about why they do the things that they do. We also skidoo into a big bug book. There, they meet up with Antoinette, a worker ant on the first day at the job.


  • Steve didn't know what the 3rd clue was called until Pail tells him that it's a chrysalis.
  • All 3 clues were found outside without skidooing in "Nature".
  • This is the 5th time the A clue phrase that debuted in "Blue's Sad Day" is used.
  • The bugs in the video letter are the praying mantis, the Madagascar hissing cockroach, and the giant African millipede.
  • When Snail appeared in the skidoo segment, he was about the size of Steve and watched as he, Blue, and Antoinette go into the anthill.
  • The theme music for this episode's clues matches Orange Butterfly's theme from "Nurture!".
    • Coincidentally, both are related to butterflies.
