Joe welcomes us in and we can't help but notice that the Blue's Clues house is decorated with hearts everywhere. Joe tells us that it's "Love Day" and shows us that Blue made a Love Day card that says "Blue loves you." He sings about it, "it's love, love, love." Just then, another heart-shaped card appears and flutters to the floor. It turns out that it's for Joe! Joe's excited - somebody loves him! The card isn't signed, though, so he doesn't know who sent it. In this episode, we and the various characters of the show explore love. To get things going, Side Table Drawer gives us a heart-shaped handy-dandy notebook to use. We head into the kitchen, where we find Mr. Salt, who says that it's time for a snack. Cinnamon and Paprika are there and he gives them heart-shaped cookies. Cinnamon says that he loves him, and Mr. Salt tells him that he loves him, too. This makes Paprika cry; she thinks this means that Mr. Salt doesn't love her. Mr. Salt tells her that this isn't true - after all, she loves more than one person, doesn't she? Paprika thinks about this and realizes that it's true. Next, we find Shovel and Pail outside in the backyard, making a sand castle. Then, Shovel accidentally knocks it down and Pail gets upset. Shovel tells us that Pail's angry at him and wants to know if we think Pail still loves him. Shovel and Pail work out their situation and we learn that sometimes you can get angry at someone, but it doesn't mean you don't love them anymore. Later on, Blue finds The Book of Love and skidoos into it. There, we find a tale about a prince and a princess who were in love. To keep track of things, we listen to the story and recall what happens, so that Blue can write it down. The story goes like this: a prince and a princess were in a love, but a magic spell turned the prince into a heart. He then floated up so high that the princess couldn't reach him and a strong wind started blowing him away. The princess followed the prince through a forest and up a mountain. She finally got close enough to reach him as a heart and hugged him, turning him back into a prince. The lesson of the story is that you should always follow your heart.
In Blue's Room, Blue takes the story of Cinderella out of the bookshelf and talks about it. She thinks that Cinderella is "so dreamy." Blue wonders if Cinderella got married to her Prince Charming, so Moona brings her into the playroom to talk about it. She says that the prince's name is Charlie and that they did get married. These days, she's making shoes that don't fall off, so people won't lose them like she lost her glass slipper. Not only that, she's a mother now - she shows a picture of her baby named Ella. Prince Charlie is home taking care of her. Blue asks about her stepsisters, saying the way they treated her wasn't very nice. Cinderella says that she had a talk with them and things are okay now. After Blue leaves the playroom, Joe shows us a Love Day card that he made us. In a segment following the show, Blue answers a question submitted online from Jose. He asks what her favorite musical instrument is, and she answers that it's the trumpet because she "loves the way it sounds."
- Danielle Brown, a relative of Content Consultant Laura G. Brown, is one of Joe's Friends in this episode.
- This is the only episode where the entire notebook is a different shape, as opposed to just its cover artwork being different. The notebook here shows the shape of a heart because it's Love Day.
- This episode introduces a new opening sequence that still includes Another Blue's Clues Day, but also features the puppet version of Blue from Blue's Room opening the pop-up book from her playroom before Moona changes her into her animated form. And after Joe says, "Come on in!", there's no Bow Bow Bow audio (unlike Season 5). However, it will appear by accident in the episode Playdates. Also, the title pennant flag never matches the color of Joe's shirt unlike most of Season 5.
- This episode was the first to feature a modified and shorter version of Play Blue's Clues, with the lyrics "To play Blue's Clues we have to find three paw prints" instead of individual lines discussing each paw print, this is most likely an attempt to save time due to the Blue's Room segments. Plus, the song got a semitone higher (A-flat major), perhaps to get ready for that very change.
- The Mailtime song was the only part of the show that was not audibly changed.
- The Mailtime video letters and the closing credits sequence seem to run a bit shorter from this episode on.
- Following the solving of Blue's Clues and the resulting activity, Blue visits Blue's Room, where she participates in a game or two.
- This is the last episode the viewer(s) says, "Cinderella", the first was in "What Story Does Blue Want to Play?"
- Starting with this episode, The So Long Song is replaced by The Goodbye Song, which is most likely another attempt to save time due to the Blue's Room segments.
- This is most likely Joe's version of Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper Day.
- This is the only episode in the original series which Cinnamon talks.
- This episode marks the second time Paprika cries. The first time it happens is in "Nurture!".
- Similar to how Felt Boy is mad at Felt Girl for scaring him in "Blue's Sad Day" , Pail gets mad at Shovel for knocking down their sandcastle.
- Similarly, in "I Did That!", Shovel gets mad at Tickety Tock for knocking over his block tower.
- This is the only episode where Pail gets angry.
- This is the first episode where Thomas Sharkey voices Shovel.
- This is the first episode where Nicole Gibson voices Pail, replacing Julia Wetherell.
- The pumpkin coach for this episode's Cinderella also appeared in the Book of Love.
- When Joe skidooed into the book, the music was the same for the Cinderella from "What Story Does Blue Want to Play?".
- Although the newer version of the theme song was used, the episode still uses the "Pawprint" and "Clue" from What Does Blue Want to Make?.
- This doesn't make sense, the "A Clue" needs to change to "Our Clues".
- This was corrected in the next episode.
- This doesn't make sense, the "A Clue" needs to change to "Our Clues".
- The credits moved really fast and only Blue's upside-down blinking animation was used, it could've had a bit more character actions.
- Joe wears a green squared shirt in this episode.
- This is the first episode to be produced in Season 6.
- This is the last episode where the Pawprint makes sounds.
- This is the first episode to have a new theme song.
- Mr. Salt appears without Mrs. Pepper.
- Blue pulls out the regular notebook instead of the heart shaped notebook.
- Blue Talks (2004)
- Nickelodeon: We Love Our Friends! (DVD, 2010)
