Trivia

  • In "Magenta Comes Over", the beginning chorus was heard again when Mailbox returned to deliver a package to Steve, which had the 3rd clue (a camera).
  • In "Animal Behavior!", Steve clucks the Mailtime song like a chicken.
  • In 'Meet Polka Dots!", Joe quacks the Mailtime song like Boris.
  • In "Animals in Our House?", various animal sounds are heard before and after each verse:
    • Before the song: kookaburra laughter
    • "Here's the mail. It never fails.": lion roar
    • "It makes me want to wag my tail.": monkey chatter
    • "When it comes I wanna wail,": elephant trumpet
    • "Mail!": various bird calls including the kookaburra again
  • For different reasons, Steve and Joe said "Mail" after the song in Blue's Surprise at Two O'Clock! and Morning Music, respectively. Steve's reason is to get Mailbox to deliver the mail and Joe's reason is to get Mailbox to wake up.
    • In some cases, there is a delay between the song and Mailbox's arrival.
      • In "Blue's Surprise At Two O'Clock!"Steve had to wait a second, then a minute, before Mailbox came in.
      • In "Blue's New Place", Mailbox was busy listening to music (specifically "Pin the Flag on Mailbox") and dancing near the tree outside that he forgot to deliver the mail. Steve and the viewers called to him to remind him.
      • In "The Baby's Here!", the phone (from Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper) rang before Steve sang "Mail!" at the end. Mailbox had to remind Steve to sing "Mail!"after the call.
  • Mailtime usually happens after finding the 2nd clue.
