This plot summary is incomplete. You can help Blue's Clues Wiki by completing it.


  • At one point, the close captioning reads that Blue is barking "We are looking for Blue's Clues", but technically, she's actually barking "We are looking for Joe's Clues".
  • At another point, the close captioning reads that Blue is barking "What Blue's Clues were all about", but technically, she's actually barking "What Joe's Clues were all about".
  • This is only the second time that the show has broke from custom in regard to the show's hallmark game. The first time was "Joe's Surprise Party," when other characters played the game.
  • This is not the last time that Joe wears his famous orange shirt for most of the episode. He will wear it one more time (with overalls) in "Bluestock."
  • Blue interacts with Sidetable Drawer.
  • This is Joe's only talking clue appearance.
  • This is the only time where Blue draws in Joe's notebook.
  • This is the only episode where Blue does not sing We Just Got a Letter.
  • This is the second time that Joe has been a clue.
  • This is the only time Joe doesn't sing the mail song with Blue.
  • This is the 4th episode where Blue skidooed twice.
  • This is the second time the viewers interact with the video letter.
  • Blue, her ball, Tickety, Sidetable, Paprika, Cinnamon, Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, Slippery, Shovel, Pail, Polka Dots, the box containing Blue's Room, Key, and Moona appear in the closing credits in that order.
    • Blue appears twice doing different things.
      • Throughout the pre-credits, she chased her ball until it ended up above the credits, causing her to stop running and wonder how to reach it. When the credits began scrolling upwards, she jumped on to them and reached her ball.
      • Before the credits ended, Blue popped up from the bottom of the screen and waved goodbye before the ending sequence.
        • The latter action also appeared in Bluestock
  • This is the only time Blue gets to be the hostess of an episode, and not Joe this time.
  • In the Blue's Room segment, there is Polka Dots' version of Blue's Clues called "Polka Dots' Puzzles".
  • This is the second time Joe pretends to be Little Red Riding Hood. The first was in "Can You Help?", although, he did not dress like Little Red Riding Hood like in this episode.
  • At the end of Joe's show, the cheers and applause sound effect was heard. How come the cheers and applause sound effect can be heard when Joe had his show at the Blue's Clues house? He was only putting it on for Blue and the viewers.
  • This is the first time since Thankful that Sidetable appears in the credits.
  • Joe wears an orange squared shirt for most of this episode, however, he changes into a yellow squared shirt for pretending to be a duck, then a green squared shirt when pretending to be Little Red Riding Hood.
