The viewers at home get to learn about maps and directions to certain places.


Today we are learning all about direction and following maps. To help Steve find Blue, we follow a number of maps. We help out Shovel and Pail in identifying a number of buildings that they could visit to do certain things. Later, we skidoo into a board game and use maps and transportation to reach a gingerbread house. They went to the library to pick up a book called Another Really Great Book. Steve sings the So Long Song and the episode ends.

Locations in the letter[]

  • Post Office

  • Notebook


  • Kenny Kim was a friend of Steve in this episode before he began voicing Periwinkle in Season 4. Other friends include retired Senior Animator & Animation Director Holly Klein, and a relative of the celebrity Rosie from Blue's Birthday, Jamie O'Donnell.
  • When this episode was on the All Kinds of Signs, and Big, Blue and Just for You! Volume 5 VHS, 20 seconds of the intro was cut off.
    • This and the other episode from the VHS "Signs" were both filmed in 1998.
  • The library in the Blue's Clues neighborhood has a one-week checkout period.
    • But in Blue's Book Nook it was two weeks instead of one. Between the two episodes the library has improved in being nice.
  • There is a Nickelodeon logo shaped like a bone in Snack Time and A Snowy Day.
  • Due to how fast the credits flip from page to page, this is the second episode in which there are no character animations in the credits, except for the ball and Blue before the book closes.
  • The blue spotted ball among the blue objects Blue hid behind at the beginning looks similar to a kickety-kick ball from Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, only the ball is lighter with larger and darker spots.
  • Steve knocks on the screen at the beginning of this episode.
    • This is the first and only time Steve physically interacts with the fourth wall by knocking.
    • The sound effect used for knocking on the screen resembles that of an older glass TV screen. Nowadays, more TV's used plastic instead of glass for screens, so this break in the fourth wall is a little dated.
  • Steve checking out the book Another Really Great Book is a reference to the book A Really Great Book from Blue's ABCs.
  • This is the only episode where a clue is found on the video letter.
  • Blue licks at the viewer on the screen. The first episode that happened was on Blue's Birthday.
  • This is the eighth time Steve wears his tan shoes.
  • The Pistas Da Blue version was the last one with the theme song footage from What Does Blue Want to Make?.
  • This is the second time Steve and Blue skidooed into a board game.
  • Mailtime happens after Steve finds the first clue.
  • This marks the only episodic appearances of Gingerbread Girl throughout it and the Scanner at the end of it.
  • The skidoo segment is very similar to the video letter in the upcoming episode "Adventure", where the kids find their monkey and their test is passed and it's also similar to Blue Wants to Play a Game where they find Gingerbread Boy at his house instead of Gingerbread Girl.
  • Steve sings the So Long Song when he and Blue go back home.


  • In the Pistas da Blue version, when Duarte is doing the theme song, Blue is behind him for the first half, making it impossible for the viewer to see Blue.
  • After Steve says, "Exactly!", Gingerbread Girl does not say, "Bye!".
