  • When Blue sang "We are gonna play, Blue's Clues!" and puts her blue pawprint up on, Magenta was surprised to that song, so she decided to do the same "We are gonna play, Blue's Clues" dance and song Blue did, except when Magenta sings it, she says "We are gonna play, Magenta's Clues", and puts her magenta pawprint on the screen too, followed by Blue's blue pawprint, making it a game called Blue and Magenta's Clues.


  • The original episode had featured Magenta's owner, Miranda. However she doesn't appear in this episode.
  • Blue and Magenta lick the screen when Josh greets the viewers. They did it again after Josh sings "We Just Figured Out Blue (and Magenta)'s Clues".
  • Only Blue put a pawprint onscreen in the original. In this episode, Magenta had her pawprint as well.
    • This game changed to "Blue and Magenta's Clues."
      • Even all the lyrics mentioning Blue's Clues added Magenta before the word "Clues"

      • Magenta although mentioned the pawprint alongside Green Puppy's in "Blue's Big Musical".
    • This is the third character to have clues taken, after Blue and Joe.
      • Steve and Josh never put pawprints up at all.
  • In the original, Steve heard the viewer shout "A Clue!" which remind him that they're also looking for Blue's Clues. In the remake, Josh mistaken "A Clue" for "The View".
    • They both missed heard the first clue.
  • Unlike the original, Magenta didn't feel sad about wearing glasses.
    • Maybe it is because she got used to it in the original.
  • In its original counterpart, the question of Blue's Clues was "What will Magenta be able to do when she gets her glasses?" In this episode. the question was "What is Magenta excited about when she gets her glasses?"
  • This is the first episode in the reboot in which Josh sings the song after he gets his notebook and tells the viewers he needs their help to figure out the answer to Blue's Clues at the end of the song, like Steve in Seasons 3-4 episodes of Blue's Clues and Joe in Season 5 episodes of Blue's Clues.
    • Except that Josh stands up after getting his notebook and starts the song instead of Steve and Joe start the song next to Sidetable Drawer.

  • The video letter features a greeting from a kid rather than a song.
  • When Dr. Eyeleen says bye to Blue, Magenta, and Josh, Josh says bye back. Steve walks away without saying bye back to Dr. Eyeleen.
