Imagine Nation is the first episode of Blue's Clues from Season 4.

Characters Present


We use our imagination to see, feel & even taste things that we wouldn't be able to otherwise. We tell a story with Blue, Tickety & Slippery using pictures and our imaginations. Unfortunately, Mr. Salt doesn't have an imagination. Steve, Periwinkle & Blue help Mr. Salt find his imagination.

  • Cotton candy


  • This is the first episode for Season 4 although it still uses the season 3 elements.
  • This is the first episode to use a new opening, some changes were made, some new clouds were added, Periwinkle (Left) & Magenta's (Right) houses are seen, a new tree & fences were added. The house was changed as well, Mr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper are still shown, but Paprika is seen, Tickety & Slippery are still shown, only for a second though, Shovel & Pail no longer behind the house, but are seen playing with each other, and say "Hi Blue", Periwinkle is now seen bouncing on Blue's ball, and Magenta is seen pushing her wagon with the ball in it as Blue enters the house. Steve's dialogue is now changed, and the windows now show the living room walls.
  • There was a rare Face promo that starred Periwinkle with him and was used when the premiere of this episode happened. An edited version was used since then to promote an episode of Blue's Clues is coming up next. Click here to see the premiere version, and click here to see the regular version.
  • Cody Ross Pits is now replaced by Patrick Van Wagenen for voicing Slippery Soap.
  • Cameron Bowen is now replaced by Kenny Kim for voicing Periwinkle.
  • This is the last episode where Tickety was voiced by Kathryn Avery.
  • During the So Long Song, Mr. Salt says "You sure are smart" instead of Steve.
  • This is the 2nd episode to feature a white crayon.


  • Shovel and Pail were credited in the Character Voices during the credits, even though they don't appear in this episode.
  • Steve did not really use glue when he stuck the button to the piece of paper. This why Steve held onto the button while holding the page when it was Mailtime.
