  • Casey Joshua Pitts, one of Steve's Friends, is related to the original voice of Slippery Soap, Cody Ross Pitts.
    • This is the last episode where all the main characters are credited as Steve's friends.
  • This is the last time (except for Weight and Balance, Signs and Inventions) where Steve stands up in a striped background holding up his notebook for a few seconds and tells the viewers he needs their help to figure out the answer to Blue's Clues.
  • This was filmed in 1998.
  • When Steve says "I think my car will go faster", he sounds like the Sock Puppet voice.
  • This is the fifth episode where two clues are found and drawn outside with only one clue found inside.
  • This is the third time where the second clue is drawn outdoors after finding the first clue in the living room. The first two are Blue's Favorite Song and What Does Blue Want to Build?.
  • This is the last episode to use Steve's Steve Gets the Sniffles OST. This is also the last episode where Steve looks vibrant in his color during Play Blue's Clues. From Pool Party to Signs, the studio's quality largely improves.
  • This marks the first episode to feature a character in a skidoo location dropping a clue after passing by.
  • This was the last episode to feature the order of character actions that debuted in Steve Gets the Sniffles during the credits.


  • The high tone Skidoo music for skidooing from the late season 3-6 OST was heard instead of the low tone Skidoo music. Other episodes where this happened in were the first six episodes, Blue's Senses, What Experiment Does Blue Want to Try?, What Does Blue Want to Make Out of Recycled Things?, Blue's ABCs and Pool Party.
  • When Steve honks the horn of the pig's car, a boom mic can be seen on top.
  • When Steve goes from the Skidoo location to the Thinking Chair, he erroneously pretends to drive a car, even when he Skidoos out, instead of his usual Skidooing.
    • He even honks the Blue Skidoo theme before skidooing out.
