  • In Mechanics!, Steve and Blue fixed an airplane’s wings, the Pawprint became a helicopter, then Steve had a race with Shovel, Pail and Gopher and Pail won, then Shovel, and then a tie, then Blue used a tape recorder to record her and Steve’s voices, and then Steve and Blue skidooed into a race game and helped Rabbit on how to move her bike, helped Pig on how to turn his car, and helped Chipmunk on how to stop his bike, and Blue wanted to fix a kite, which was the answer to Blue’s Clues (a kite) when Blue left three clues on string, wind and a diamond-shaped piece of paper and there was no wrong answer.
  • Slippery Soap never had a cousin even though Josh is the cousin of Steve and Joe and Slippery Soap had only his friend Sudsy in Blue's News and Big News with Blue.
  • The clue is spinning like in Blue's Big Pajama Party and Pajama Party with Blue when Steve, Josh and Blue saw Earth “spinning” around and clockwise to show how the Blue's Clues House goes from night to day and day to night.
  • This is the second episode where a spinning motion was a clue. The first episode being The Legend of the Jack O'Lantern.
  • This is the first time that Slippery Soap skidooed.
  • This is the second episode where wind was a clue. The first episode being Mechanics!.
  • Rainbow Puppy is singing a song about what a race car needs like Rainbow did in Blue's Rainy Day Rainbow when Rainbow sung Here Comes a Rainbow and sung that Rainbows need raindrops, sunlight, and refraction.
  • This is the third episode where wings were a clue. The first two being Bugs! and Look Carefully....
    • This is also the first episode where wings were the third clue because in Bugs!, it was the first clue, and in Look Carefully..., it was the second clue.
  • There are binoculars even though in Pretend Time, Steve pretended to be a jungle explorer and used binoculars and a pair of binoculars by long and short things in A Brand New Game when Joe, Blue and Franny mooed like cows, hopped like basketballs and looked through telescopes.
  • Slippery Soap has a racecar like Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper did in both Magenta Comes Over and Playdate with Magenta when Steve and Josh helped Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper make racecars out of food with celery and a carrot for the bodies, crackers and peas for the wheels, and broccoli and mushroom for the seats and drivers and like Shovel, Pail and Pig did in Mechanics! when Steve had a race with Shovel and Pail and Pail won, then Shovel, and then a tie and then helped Pig on how to turn his car.
  • A propeller is the answer to Blue’s Clues but a propeller was seen in Inventions when Steve played the Inventions Game with Shovel and Pail and during the airplane part, the glider was invented first, then the biplane, which had a propeller, came next, and the airplanes with the engines came last.
