On a hot summer day, Blue and Steve hold a pool party, with a big list of friends to invite drawn up. We help to find them all to get them invited. We also test our memory skills while helping Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, and Paprika make banana splits. Later on, we take part in a matching card game.

  • Steve did not have his green striped long-sleeved shirt or his tan pants on for the entire episode. When it was time for the pool party, He is in his green striped t-shirt and tan shorts. He also wore flip-flops. The t-shirt and tan shorts would be worn again in the episode "Blue's Backyard Ballgame Bonanza". The flip flops weren't present in that episode.
  • In Pistas Da Blue, Duarte wears a Hawaiian shirt instead of a green striped shirt during the pool party.
  • When this episode is shown on Noggin, the pawprint for the third clue is blocked up almost entirely by the Noggin watermark at the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • This episode used the same pool from "Blue Goes to the Beach".
  • This is the sixth time Blue nods her head no.

  • When the camera zooms in to show Paprika putting sprinkles on the sundae that was lacking some sprinkles, the spoon disappears. The spoon reappears when the camera zooms out after the sprinkles were added.
  • During Thinking Time, a spot was added on the second clue, a puppy, even though Steve did not put a spot when drawing the clue.
    • This is because the image of the second clue is taken from a future episode, Magenta Gets Glasses, instead of rendering an image from the drawing in this episode.
  • When Steve finished drawing the third clue, the pawprint didn't come off.
