Steve and Blue teach the viewers what to do if you feel shy when Magenta's owner, Miranda comes to visit.


  • Question: Who do you think Blue is feeling shy about?
  • Clues:
    • 1. A Bag
    • 2. A Footprint
    • 3. A Videotape (VHS)
  • Answer: Miranda
  • Skidoo location: Blue's School
  • Living room picture: A friend greeting a person, then playing checkers, then building blocks, then playing catch, then back to playing checkers


  • Sidetable's face appears before Blue left her paw print on the screen.
  • Steve tells Mailbox that Blue used to be shy with him the first time Mailbox meet Blue.
  • This is one of a handful of episodes where a live-action character that is not Steve or Joe appears, not counting the kids in the letters.
  • In the videotape shown near the end, the tape referenced Blue's Birthday, Blue's Big Costume Party and Pool Party.
  • At the beginning of/during the skidoo segment and when Duck is seen at the end, the Thinking Time segment music from Blue Wants to Play a Game is heard. The same situation happens at the beginning and after Duck is seen but this time the playdate music from Magenta Comes Over is heard twice when Miranda enters Steve and Blue's house.
  • This was filmed in 1999.
  • This is the second time they see Green Kitten.
  • This is the first appearance of Magenta's owner, Miranda.
  • There is no Kevin or Duarte version because the producers could not find an actress to portray Magenta's owner Miranda. and it is unknown why Miranda hasn't met Kevin or Duarte in the UK and European Portuguese version of Blue's Clues.
  • Shannon Walker Williams portrayed the role of Miranda on this episode.
  • This episode holds the record for the shortest episode title in the series.
  • In the credits, Blue's 1st action was set to "Created By" while Blue's 2nd action was set to "Vice President of Production, Nick Jr."


  • When Steve asks "Where did Turquoise go?", his face was angry.
  • Unlike other episodes, Blue's "goodbye barking and waving" was in the beginning of the credits, and her upside down blinking is put at the very end. Normally, from this season onwards, it's the other way around.
