  • Periwinkle became a clue in "Blue's Predictions".
  • Periwinkle is one of the few major characters to debut after the second season.
  • In "Blue's Big Musical Movie", Periwinkle thought the group inside the house were doing a magic show when they were really doing a music show. But because the Blue's Clues group needed more time to get ready backstage, Periwinkle did his magic show to entertain the audience.
  • Periwinkle happened to be the first character to appear in an episode a few times.
  • Periwinkle was in Steve and Blue's house for the first time on the episode "Café Blue".
  • Before Periwinkle moved next door to the Blue's Clues house, he lived in a city.
  • He was often mistaken for a female by both children and adults. The UK version, however, has a female Periwinkle.
  • He skidooed in two episodes: "Periwinkle Misses His Friend" and "The Big Book About Us".
