Soccer Practice is the eighth episode of Blue's Clues from season 6.

Characters present


Blue and some friends learn how to play soccer professionally.


Joe leads the viewer to the park where Blue, Sidetable, and other characters are playing a game of soccer. Joe decides to play Blue's Clues in a unique way. Joe is the coach and provides practical soccer tips about things such as how to avoid bumping into each other and not giving up. At Mailtime, Mailbox gives Joe a letter sent by soccer-playing children showing the viewer what real soccer looks like. Mailbox asks Joe if using your head in soccer is allowed. Joe tells Mailbox that you can use anything except your hands in soccer. Mailbox is relieved. The soccer game resumes. The players learn the importance of stretching and of sharing with our teammates. In Blue's Room, Blue and the viewer talk about soccer and have some fun playing a soccer drawing game with Doodle Board.


  • Question: what could we do after soccer pratice
  • Clues:
    • A Truck
    • A Cone
    • Circles
  • Answer: Eat Ice Cream


  • This is the only time Joe wears his athletic clothes, which include a T-Shirt, a hoodie with the squares pattern, sweatpants, and red soccer shoes.
  • At the end of the Mailtime song, Joe says "GOAL!" instead of "MAIL!" before correcting himself.
  • When Purple Kangaroo and Magenta bump into each other and fall down, Magenta's glasses fall off.
  • Usually, Joe asks the viewers a question and the viewer explains. But in this episode, they don't need to, but they do explain the answer to Blue's Clues.
  • This is the final Blue's Clues episode with the Talking Clues.
  • This is the second time Orange Kitten gets mad at Periwinkle. The first was Blue Takes You to School.
  • This is the last time Joe sings the Mailtime Song. This is also the last time to use Blue's Modern Singing for the Mailtime Song.
  • This is the second time Joe is on the right side at the end of the Mailtime Song. The first time was in Blue's Big Car Trip.
  • This is the final appearance of Joe's Handy Dandy Notebook.
  • This episode of Blue's Clues can be found on the Nick Jr. DVD "All About Fall".
    • As of 2020, that is the only release outside of Amazon Prime and iTunes where you can see this episode, for now.
      • This is the only Season 6 episode not to be released on VHS.
  • A deleted scene shows that Green Puppy was going to be in the episode.
  • This is the last time where Joe does the Mailtime song.
  • This is another episode where all 3 clues are found outside.
  • This is the first episode where a character mentions not having a certain body part. That character is Mailbox. And in this case, Joe told Mailbox that he only had a flag.
  • Sidetable's inanimate form does not appear at all in this episode making this the first and only episode where she appears not to feature her inanimate form.
  • Joe wears a multicolored squared soccer uniform in this episode.
  • These were the ice cream that was given
    • Blue & Magenta: Chocolate
    • Orange Kitten & Sidetable Drawer: Vanilla
    • Periwinkle & Purple Kangaroo: Strawberry


  • As a dog, Blue should not have chosen chocolate as her ice cream flavor. In real life, chocolate is toxic to dogs if taken in large amounts (although here it does not apply due to cartoon logic)
    • Magenta shouldn't have chocolate either.
    • This also happened in The Snack Chart, but she had chocolate milk instead of chocolate ice cream.
      • Similarly, the viewer is pretended to be given chocolate, despite some people might be allergic to chocolate and others don't like it all.
