  • "The Baby's Here!" is the second of two times that Steve didn't actually ask Blue the question for Blue's Clues:
    • He said, "You know, we should do something special to welcome the new baby." Blue immediately hopped up and placed the signal pawprint on the screen.
  • Just like Paprika, Cinnamon made his debut by being born in this episode.
  • Unlike Paprika's birth in Blue's News, Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper go to the hospital when Cinnamon is born.
  • This is the fifth time that Steve plays the guitar when singing the So Long Song.
  • This is the first appearance of Cinnamon, Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper's baby boy, as well as Grandma Cayenne's only speaking appearance.
  • This episode is the second of two on the "Blue's Big News: Vol. 2: The Baby's Here!" VHS.
  • In the closing credits:
    • Lisa Kudrow received a "Featuring As" credit for her role as the voice of the Baby Doctor. She may have been given this type of credit since she is well known for her role as Phoebe Buffay in Friends.
      • The North Shore University Hospital at Forest Hills received a "Special Thanks" credit.
        • Ananlivia Balaban (Voice of Cinnamon in this episode and child of the voice of Mr. Salt) is credited as one of Steve's Friends but will be credited under Characters in future episodes.
  • In the Mailtime segment:
    • The "Mailtime" song was interrupted by Mr. Salt calling to check on things at the Blue's Clues house.
      • Mailbox then asks that Steve to yell "Mailllll!" before he gets his letter, so he does.
        • Mailbox wonders if the baby has been born yet, but Steve says that it has not and that it takes time.
  • The music when Steve sings "The Baby's Here" was used in this episode which would later be reused in Season 5 episodes as Joe's greeting.
  • The crying sound of Baby Kate from Arthur is heard in this episode.
    • This also happens to Paprika in Nurture! while she was crying in this episode.
  • Steve plays the guitar at the end of the episode.
  • This marks the only time a clue is found in the yellow swirl frame.
