Characters present


This episode features playdates, special time playing with some of the characters in the Blue's Clues house. We blow on the Wheel of Playdates, having fun Blue, Joe, Periwinkle, & Mailbox. In the skidoo segment, Joe performs a musical number about our friendship with him. Later, viewers play pretend with Blue and her playroom friends in Blue's Room.


  • Joe didn't say "Blue Skidoo, We Can Too." Instead, he says "I'll Skidoo To A Playdate With You" instead.
    • Joe skidoos without Blue in this episode, just like how Steve did in Blue's Birthday.
  • This is the last episode to see Joe skidoo back home onscreen.
  • This is the final Blue's Clues episode to mainly take place in the Blue's Clues house.
    • This is also the last episode where Joe gets a letter and thinks on the standard Thinking Chair in the Blue's Clues House.
    • Similarly, this is the last episode to zoom out of the house at the end of the episode before the closing credits.

  • Sidetable and Mr. Salt appear in the episode, but they do not have a playdate with the viewers.
  • This is also the last episode where Mailtime happens before the second clue gets found.
  • During the mailtime segment:
    • The Maltime chorus is not included.
    • This is the second episode where Mailbox sings the Mailtime song with the first being What Does Blue Want to Do on a Rainy Day, but this is the first time he sings completely by himself, all the way.
    • Mailbox also delivers the letter in the opposite direction.
  • Joe wears the same formal outfit from the 100th Episode Celebration in the skidoo segment, but this time with a hat.
  • The "Wheel of Playdates" is actually a parody on the popular game show "Wheel of Fortune".
  • This is the third time water is the first clue, the other times being, "What Experiment Does Blue Want to Try?" and "Blue's Big Car Trip".
  • Joe wears a purple squared shirt in this episode.


  • In the theme song, after Joe sings "Come on in!", they accidentally put the "Bow Bow Bow" audio from Season 5 for the only time in season 6.
  • At the end of the episode, Joe said "Well, thanks for playing with us," the captions said "Well, thanks for playing us." The word "with" was left out in the sentence.
