Characters Present


Steve and Blue teach the viewers what to do if they get frustrated.


Frustration happens to everyone, even characters in the Blue's Clues House, Fortunately, there's a way to deal with it, if you feel frustrated, the best thing to do is to stop, breathe & think. Steve uses this idea when he has trouble keeping the picture by the Thinking Chair straight. This idea helps out Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper as well. Later, we help out Rabbit who's frustrated about trying to balance things on a teeter totter.
