Video Releases[]


  • This episode was surprisingly produced before Joe Gets a Clue which is also in a surprise move because in said episode, Joe learned how to play Blue’s Clues. Both this episode and the latter was filmed in between November-December 2000, making Joe's actor Donovan Patton 22 years old at the time of production.
  • This is the very first episode to feature Joe as the host in production order.
  • This is the first episode in production order to use the "Another Blue's Clues Day" opening sequence.
  • This episode was shown on the VHS release It's Joe Time! and the DVD Get to Know Joe!.
  • This is the second time Periwinkle skidoos. His first time was in Periwinkle Misses His Friend.
  • Joe and Kevin wear a green squared shirt in this episode.
  • Pail appears without Shovel, except during the end credits.
  • When Joe writes wiggle lines on his paper, the trombone/tuba noise is heard.
  • Although wiggling is drawn offscreen in this episode, a wiggle motion as the second clue from Anatomy is drawn onscreen.
  • In this episode, the title flag was blue, but the flag did not match Joe's shirt.
  • In this episode, Joe says "We have our third clue!" instead of "We have all three clues!".


  • In the DirecTV guide of this episode, Steve Burns is mistakenly added to the cast.
  • When coming up with things to represent themselves for the "Big Book About Us," the characters have all conveniently forgotten about the things they collected from Blue's Collection.
  • In this episode, Sidetable states that her favorite color is purple. But in Colors Everywhere!, she states that her favorite color is orange instead.
    • Her favorite color was the rainbow in Colors Everywhere with Blue.
    • This is a total goof that she might have more than one favorite color.
  • Joe skidoos back home 2 seconds late.
  • In the UK version, when Kevin skidoos back home, he's standing up instead of crouching making him look smaller due to the background, it also happened in the UK version of Something To Do Blue.
  • This episode is listed as a Season 4 episode on streaming services, such as Amazon Prime and iTunes.
