Bedtime Business is the 11th episode of Blue's Clues from season 5.

Characters Present


We've come to the Blue's Clues house at night and so we help Joe & Blue with their bedtime routine, their bedtime business. We watch as Joe tucks in Boris & then learn about important pre-sleepytime activities. The characters have a small clothing crisis, but with our help in identifying clothing through features such as spots and stripes, the problem is solved. We also help out with washing up, reading a story and more.




  • Joe wears his pajamas for this episode in the mailtime segment. Blue wears her pajamas for the mailtime segment too.
  • A kid throws a toothbrush out of the letter. Joe picks up the toothbrush which had a clue on it.
  • After Joe drew the 3rd clue in his thinking chair, he realized he was already sitting in the thinking chair.
  • This is Joe's version of "Blue's Big Pajama Party".
    • Therefore, in both episodes, both the first and third clues are found in the living room.
  • This is the 2nd time that this episode holds the record for the shortest time that two clues were found in a fast time between each other. The third clue was found after the Mailtime.
  • This episode shares the name with a music video featured in segment after discussing the first two clues. The first time that happened was in "Joe Gets a Clue".
  • Joe sings the Blue's Clues Theme Song, the Mailtime Song and the So Long Song in his normal voice instead of his whisper voice.
  • Second time Sidetable's face appears during the So Long Song since "Blue's Book Nook".
  • This episode shares the same name with a music video from the 2000 VHS release of "Magenta Comes Over".
