Characters Present


Joe and Blue write out words.


Joe and Blue have been having fun writing labels, labeling all sorts of different things in the Blue's Clues house. We have fun with writing too, as Joe teaches us a trick where we can write a letter in the air using our finger. We find a character named Marky up in the attic and we help him to make labels for a couple of boxes. In the Skidoo segment, Joe finds himself holding a very large paintbrush and a character named Palette shows up and asks us to help her write a word.


  • Question: What else does Blue want to write?
  • Clues:
    • 1. The Letter J
    • 2. The Letter O
    • 3. The Letter E
  • Answer: Joe
  • Skidoo location: Palette's Painting World
  • Living room picture: An owl, then a bug, then a cat, then a worm, all with labels


  • Palette does not appear at the end of the episode because she was very busy.
  • When the toy box opens, the noisemaker from Blue's Birthday plays.
  • Elizabeth Rose Anderson, a relative of former Content Consultant Dr. Dan Anderson, and Jack Hoffman, a relative of the voice of Paprika, Corrine Hoffman, are both friends of Joe in this episode.
  • This, The Scavenger Hunt, and Magenta's Messages have been produced/filmed before the recent episodes.
  • This is Joe's version of "Blue's ABCs" and "Words".
  • This is the third episode with words. The first was "Blue's ABCs" and the second as "Words".
  • This is the third episode with letters. The first was "Blue's ABCs" and the second as "The Alphabet Train".
  • This episode appeared on the 2005 VHS/DVD release of Alphabet Power.
  • Joe wears a green squared shirt in this episode.
    • This is also the first episode since I'm So Happy!/A Brand New Game where Joe is seen with his green squared shirt.
    • Because this is a later produced episode, his hair is shorter unlike every other episode in his green squared shirt in season five. This also happens in season six episodes.
  • Although being produced before talking clues, this episode was the last before talking clues were in production.
  • This is the second episode to let the host have the answer. This is also the second time Marky appears.

  • Periwinkle's animation during the credits is shortened.
  • Joe's voice is kind of lower pitched in some scenes than it is in other episodes.
