Characters Present


What's so funny? That is the question as Steve and Blue get silly.


  • Question: What makes Blue laugh?
  • Clues:
    • 3 Balls
  • Answer: Juggle
  • Skidoo: Silly Town
  • Living room picture: An egg, then the addition of eyes, then the addition of a nose, then the addition of a mouth, then the addition of a rainbow wig


The Blue's Clues House has become extremely silly today. Steve is more than happy to participate, by doing funny stuff such as putting a shoe on his head and his ear and trying to make Blue laugh. Sidetable joins in by first giving Steve a potato when he goes to get his notebook. We come across Shovel and Pail, who find that Gopher's popping up all over the backyard, although they are not sure exactly where he is going to show up next. We figure out that he pops up in predictable patterns. Later, we skidoo into Silly Town. Silly Town is a strange, mixed up place. Looking around, we find everything from a banana being used as a hammer to a backwards park.


  • This episode could be considered as an April Fools episode despite airing in October 2000.
  • This is the third time that Steve juggles.
  • This is the ninth time Steve wears his tan shoes.
  • This was not the last time Steve wore his tan shoes, because he wore his tan shoes one more time in "Blue's Backyard Ballgame Bonanza".
  • This is the last time the "Play Blue's Clues" footage from Art Appreciation was used (It was a modified version).
  • This was the only time all three clues are the same.
    • They were three balls.
  • In the UK version, after the Mailtime song, Kevin laughs and says "Watch this!". But in the US version, Steve just looks at the viewer and smiles.
  • Some scenes on Pistas da Blue version that Duarte's hair from Season 2-Early Season 3 is almost used.
  • This episode was later remade in Blue's Clues & You, as titled Laugh with Blue.
  • When the kids say "Bye, Steve!", a silly sound follows the end of the "We Are Looking For Blue's Clues" melody, but Blue barking does not.
  • This is the only time Blue closed the letter, and not Steve.
  • At the end of the episode, one of the balls was not really a ball, it was a nectarine, which was just like a ball so Steve could eat it.


  • In Pistas da Blue version, After the sock puppet picks up the notebook, The viewers phrase Bloco! plays late.
  • At the end of this episode, the Nick Jr. Productions logo music begins when the series title fade to black, and as a result, the logo's visual is out of sync
