Joe's Scrapbook Journey

Joe is Steve's brother. When Steve leaves for college, Joe stays with Blue & becomes the new host of the show. Joe loves squares, like the ones on his shirt, and can't wait to play Blue's Clues. Joe likes the colors green & orange, even though he is seen wearing other colored shirts. He also has a stuffed duck named Boris. Joe has a notebook shaped like the thinking chair.


Joe took over the complete role of Steve as the host after the 5th season began in 2002. This was a difficult task for the film people of the show, for Steve, and for many of Steve's fans. After the 6th season started, Nick Jr. decided to play reruns of episodes from seasons 1-4, and still does to this day, making it easier for Steve fans to get used to the new host. Then, Nick Jr. decided to play returns of episodes from seasons 5 & 6. Steve did not appear in the 2 seasons because he went to college but he took a visit from college in the 100th episode celebration & calls Joe & Blue and is seen as his younger self in Blue's first holiday.


Joe has brown hair. His shirt colors are green, orange, yellow, red, blue & purple. Joe has brown shoes. He has tan pants.


  • Joe has appeared in 42 episodes of the show, starting with the last 3 episodes of season 4. Joe has appeared every episode in season 5 & season 6. He also crossed on over to the Blue's Room.
  • Joe's 1st appearance was in "Joe's First Day" from Blue's Clues and his last appearance was in "Music Stars" from Blue's Room.

  • Joe's notebook is shaped like the thinking chair.
  • Although he is younger, Joe is taller than Steve.
  • When Donavon Patton auditioned for the show, he had no idea that he was auditioning for a kid's show. He thought he was auditioning for a show that involves the blues.
  • Joe was a Clue two times in the episodes "Blue Goes to the Doctor" and "Joe's Clues".
  • Just like Steve (in season 1), Joe's voice is high-pitched in some episodes.
