Characters Present


Steve has come up with a Thankful Book and so he's looking to find out some of the things that the characters in the Blue's Clues house are thankful for. They help Mr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper prepare for the big feast they're having this evening and also find out about what they & Paprika are thankful. They also get Shovel & Pail's thoughts on this, as Steve grows hungrier. Finally, before the big feast, they skidoo into a picture frame and help our felt friends out with sharing and Steve practices patience in waiting for the big feast just a little longer.

  • This episode is a Thanksgiving special.
  • In the US, it aired as part of Blue's Thank You, Thank You Monday, an all day Blue's Clues marathon on Nick Jr.
  • This is the sixth time Steve wears his tan shoes.
  • Slippery Soap appears at the big feast, but Steve never asked him what he's thankful for. If Steve were to do this, he may have said he's thankful for bubbles.
  • Steve said the word "roughage" when mentioning if leaves could be eaten. Roughage means an object resembles rough material.
  • This is the first time when Sidetable Drawer was in the credits and the only Steve episode in which it happened.
  • In Canada, this episode was aired in early October because Thanksgiving in Canada is a month and a half earlier than it is in US.
