  • Although Steve or Blue did not appear in the intro, Steve was actually inside the house instead of appearing in front of it, outside. This happens again in the next episode, Making Changes. As a result, Mailbox can be seen tossing with his flag, even though Blue did not have her ball with her.
    • Usually, when the quiet opening is used, Steve appears in front of the house where the episode begins outside.
  • "The Baby's Here!" is the second of two times that Steve didn't 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 (and last) time that Steve plays the guitar when he's 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.
          • After "Bye, Steve!", the end of the "We Are Looking For Blue's Clues" melody does not play.
  • 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.
    • It is heard when Steve and Blue are looking at the baby dragons, and one of them cries.
  • Steve plays the guitar at the end of the episode.
  • This marks the only time a clue is found in the yellow swirl frame.
  • This the second episode to feature a rattle as a clue, after Blue's Big Holiday.
  • Mrs. Pepper's base is thinner and less rounded after half of the episode, and she is wearing a postpartum bind until they come home from the hospital.
    • She was the most widest and rounded at the first half of the episode than the first two episodes.
