The Scavenger Hunt is the 27th episode of Blue's Clues from season 5. It was the 120th to be produced and the 24th to be aired.

Characters Present


Joe, Blue, Magenta, and their friends go on a scavenger hunt.


  • Question: What should we do after we find everything on our list?
  • Clues:
    • 1. Music
    • 2. Cupcakes
    • 3. A Balloon
  • Answer: A Party
  • Skidoo location: Felt Board
  • Living room picture: The checklist, then with 2 checks, then with 3 checks


  • This was filmed in late 2001, before Steve even had his final episodes aired.
  • Unlike in other recent episodes where clues are shown simply magically drawn onto the Notebook paper and talking and singing, Joe is actually shown drawing the clues in this episode, Let's Write and Magenta's Messages.
    • The items found in the scavenger hunt form the very clues in this episode.
  • This is the only time Magenta skidoos.
  • This is Joe's version of Blue's Big Treasure Hunt.
  • This is the last Blue's Clues episode in which Joe wears his red squared shirt. He will wear it again (with overalls) in the Blue's Room episode Blue's Farm Playdate.
  • This episode is listed as a Season 4 episode on streaming services such as iTunes and Amazon Prime
  • In addition, this is the only episode where he finds the third clue in the skidoo segment while he wears his red shirt.
  • Joe wears a red squared shirt in this episode.
  • In the credits, the first page does not fade before the other credits start scrolling upwards, it just immediately starts going up while the other credits appear.
    • This is fixed in Animals in Our House? and Morning Music, where it does fade before all the other credits start scrolling upwards.
      • Similarly, some of the credit parts, such as "Studio Crew" looks like they were going to have this credits flip from page to page.
        • Surprising, there are no character animations (not counting Blue and her ball before the book closes) in this credits, not even Blue's upside down blinking in the beginning.


  • After Joe got up off the floor with the tape, the blanket on the bed changed from the original blanket to the checkered blanket.
