Blue and Josh host a Pajama Party.

Recap

Josh and Blue welcome us to the pajama party. He is ready, he has on his blue-striped pajamas and bunny slippers. Of course, it would not be any fun if we just went right to sleep and Josh certainly seems to think so; he insists that he is not sleepy, despite evidence of yawning. After Mr. Salt puts Sage and Ginger to bed, Josh asks Blue what she wanted to do tonight. Blue decided to play a nighttime game of Blue’s Clues. So before getting ready for bed, we have some fun. We head outside, where we find Shovel and Pail listening to the sounds of the night. We learn that there are some animals that stay awake at night. We identify an owl by his hoot and a squeaking bat. All of these animals are nocturnal; they are awake at night and then rest during the daytime. Josh then finds the second clue on a lamp. After Josh gets a cozy blanket from his grandma in the mail, Josh thinks of a deep question: Just why is it that we have night? Blue and Josh became "Pajamanauts" and skidoo into space, where they have a chat with the sun and the Earth and learn that the sun is always shining, but because the earth is always spinning, parts of it are in a shadow, away from the sun's light, thus causing night. After learning about the night to the day, they then skidoo back home, just as the late-night approaches. He takes off his blanket cape and puts it back in place. He then finds one last clue, which is a book, sitting on a table next to the front door. He draws the clue and sits on the Thinking Chair. The answer was: reading a book. Everyone gets ready for bed and Josh reads a bedtime book called "Goodnight, Bird" to the others. After reading, Josh sings the So Long song in a soft manner while playing his Handy Dandy Guitar. After they went to bed, Josh says “goodnight” and the episode ends.

Trivia

  • This is the first episode in the reboot to take place at night and this is also the first time the theme song had a variant. The variant is that when the song is halfway through, the sky turns from sky blue to sunset purple.
  • This is the second episode in the reboot to skidoo in space.
  • The nighttime tune for The So Long Song was first featured in Big News with Blue.
  • It is revealed that Josh has a grandmother.
  • This is the first episode where Josh does not get an interactive video letter or email. Instead, the package was delivered instead.
  • There was no wrong answer in this episode, likely due to no possible wrong answers (as the clues are very obvious).

Differences

  • There are some characters differences:
    • The newborns and Paprika's roles are swapped, due to Paprika being all grown.
    • Magenta also appears in this episode, but not in the original.

  • The lightning bug didn’t make an appearance at the beginning in the remake.
  • In the original, Steve told the viewers they should be here for the pajama party, but in the remake, Josh & Blue welcomed the viewers to the pajama party.
  • In the original, Blue didn't wear her pajamas until she goes to the bedroom to pick out a book, but in the remake, Blue wore her pajamas throughout the entire episode.
  • In the original, the sleeping bag was blue.
  • In the remake, Josh pretended to be a bunny when he said that his bunny slippers would like to hop there, but in the original, Steve said that his feet feel ridiculously fuzzy right now before walking to the dining table to see what Blue and Tickety Tock noticed.
  • In the remake, Mrs. Pepper and Mr. Salt called Josh to see the sun going down, but in the original, Mrs. Pepper and Mr. Salt didn't call Steve.
  • In the remake, when the viewer shouts "A clue!" on the first one, Josh thought they said "You". But in the original Steve mistaken "A Clue" for "Who?" and introduces the viewers to Horace, his stuffed animal.
    • It's currently unknown what stuffed animal Josh has.
  • Shovel used a lantern on a stick instead of a flashlight.
  • The cricket did not make an appearance in the episode.
  • In the original, Steve did yawn and the bat asked if he was tired. In the remake, Josh never yawned.
  • In the original, when Steve was following the light coming from the lamp used as the 2nd clue, Shovel and Pail stayed with the bat. In the remake, Shovel and Pail left before Josh did.
  • In space, Earth was male and the moon was not shown.
    • The earth was like the real one in the episode but was clay stop motion in the original.
      • Additionally, it wasn't until Josh asked how there was day and night when the earth's eyes and mouth appeared. In the original, the earth had them the whole time.
      • He also spun correctly in the reboot, while in the original the earth vertically spun clockwise.
    • The moon that appeared in "Goodnight, Bird" remained, however.
  • In the original series Steve whispers almost the entire Mailtime song, but sings loud in the middle of it by accident. In the reboot, Josh whispers the entire Mailtime song, but then tries to sing the last "Mail" in a loud voice, then sings the last "Mail" in a quiet voice.
    • In the reboot, Blue barks in a whisper after the Mailtime song. In the original, she did not bark.
  • In this episode, Josh got a package from his grandma instead of a letter. This is the very first time that a package has been shown in the Mailtime segment in the entire Blue's Clues franchise.
  • This is the first episode to have the song “We Just Got A Package”.
  • In the original, Steve sang the “So Long Song” all by himself without Blue with him, but in the remake, Josh sang the “So Long Song” while Blue and the other characters were with him.
  • The Sleeping Bag was purple with white spots. In the original, it was colored blue with light blue spots
  • Josh does not interact with Sidetable Drawer because he had his notebook/phone with him already.
  • The bathroom scene was absent from the original episode. The bedroom scene immediately shows up after Blue's Clues is solved.
  • The pages of "Goodnight, Bird" were inanimate in the original. In the reboot, they were animated.
    • In that same story, in the original, the sun had a line before the moon and stars. In the remake, only the moon and stars talked to Bird.
    • In the original when Steve read Goodnight Bird, Bird, the Sun, the Moon, the Stars, and the Owl didn't move.
  • In the original, when Steve turns off the lamp, the scene cuts to a blackout for a short time and then cuts to the credits. In the remake, the scene doesn't go black when Josh turns off the lamp and it immediately cuts to the credits.
  • In the original, the credits were featured on a space background instead of their usual white background. In the reboot, the credits were featured on the same sky blue background as always.
  • It was only the moon who appeared in the credits while in the remake, many characters, including Blue, appeared.
