Sad Day with Blue

Sad Day with Blue


  • This is Fifi and Freddy's first speaking appearance in Blue's Clues & You!.
  • This is the first episode of Blue's Clues & You! to not have a wrong answer.
  • This is also the first episode of Blue's Clues & You where the Mailtime segment takes place before the second clue gets found.
  • This is the first time where Blue does not jump towards the screen after the line "You can do anything" during the Play Blue's Clues theme.
  • This is also the first time where Josh doesn't play his guitar in the theme song.
  • This is the first aired episode of "Blue's Clues & You!" where a different colored crayon is used to draw a clue.
  • This is the second episode where Magenta joins Blue and Josh during the So Long Song.
  • This is the first time that Purple Kangaroo and Orange Kitten make their appearance in the reboot. We see them again in "Colors Everywhere with Blue" and "Bluestock."
  • Magenta appears in the credits in her animated clue form.


  • In the original episode, there was a green puppy, but in this episode, the green puppy was replaced with Magenta.
  • In the original episode, Steve used a green crayon to draw Green Puppy, but in the reboot version, Josh used a magenta crayon to draw Magenta.
    • The musical instrument for Magenta as a clue is a steel drum instead of a saxophone.
    • Other characters from the original that are missing are a Green Kitten, a Blue Kitten, and a Pink Kangaroo.
  • Though sad, Blue stated that they play Blue's Clues in this episode, but in the original episode the viewer is the one who suggest that they play Blue's Clues.
  • In the original episode, Steve asked Sidetable Drawer for his notebook without saying "please", making her sad. Here in this episode, Josh asked for his notebook and said "please" without Sidetable reminding him.
  • Unlike the original, Sidetable didn't feel sad about Josh asked for his notebook and said "please".
    • Maybe it is because she got used to it in the original.
  • In the original, Blue was able to sing "Play Blue's Clues", and "We just figured out Blue's Clues" normally. In the reboot, she just moped during the songs.
  • Freddy and Fifi take the place of Fred and Felicia in this episode, but were respectively named after them.
    • "Felicia" also made up with "Fred" earlier than in the original.
  • In the original episode, Mailtime came after Steve asks Blue if getting the letter will make her feel a little better. Here in this episode, Mailtime came immediately after the Felt Friends scene.
  • In the original episode, it was the Green Kitten who accidentally ruined Orange Kitten's painting, and the Green Puppy who took the book from Purple Kangaroo. Here in this episode, it was Magenta who did both.
  • The scene where Little Kitten got hurt from playing Follow the Leader was omitted from the original episode.
  • No one other than Blue, Magenta and Josh came to see how Blue was feeling about how Magenta keeps knocking down Blue's blocks.
  • In the original, Green Puppy gave Blue a flower, but in the remake Magenta gave nothing to Blue.
  • In the original episode, Green Puppy knocks down Blue's block tower on purpose, but in this episode, Magenta got over-excited and accidentally knocks it down.
    • Magenta felt sad when Blue said "no" to her. In the original episode, Green Puppy doesn't mind when Blue tells her "no".
      • The ending scene in this episode makes sense (unlike that of the original) considering that Blue wanted Magenta to be happy as well.
  • Magenta joins in the So Long Song with Blue and Josh. This also happened in "Playdate with Magenta".
