Characters Present


Steve & Blue spend the day outdoors.


We are having fun outside on a spring day. All of our friends are there: even Sidetable has come out to do some bird watching. We have fun doing things like looking for four leaf clovers and exploring the vast backyard of the Blue's Clues house. In a Blue Skidoo segment, we help out a friend named Windy who has blown around things from all the different seasons, getting them all mixed up.


  • This is the last episode to have only Blue, Tickety, Mr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper appear during the credit sequence. Starting with Occupations, other characters are shown daily.
  • This is the first appearance of the Season 3 & 4 Quiet opening. Rather than opening with Steve asking the viewers to find Blue, instead the opening music plays as we zoom in on the Blue's Clues house and then Steve appears in front of it, outside.
  • Blue & Steve play Blue's Clues outside.
    • This is also the first time that the inside of the house is not shown in the series.
  • An outdoor thinking chair was used and was called the thinking rock.
  • When Sidetable Drawer first appeared, she had a pair of binoculars for birdwatching. In the rest of her appearances in this episode, she had the herb bouquet Mr. Salt and Paprika made for Mrs. Pepper.
  • This episode didn't have Blue & Steve go indoors.
  • Blue holds the regular notebook instead of the nature notebook.
  • Before the end of the Mailtime Song, after Steve sings "When it comes I wanna wail", the music stopped for a couple of seconds when Steve and Blue went up to Mailbox to yell out "MAIL!" to surprise him.
  • One of the kids in the video letter mistook several pill bugs for beetles.
