  • Paprika cries when Steve and Blue try to look after her.

  • When this episode is shown on Noggin, the pawprint for the second clue is blocked up almost entirely by the Noggin watermark at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • This episode is the second of 2 episodes on "Blue's Safari" that aired on VHS.
    • Also the credit music was used for the VHS credit sequence as well.
  • The idea of needs was also looked at back in the Season 1 episode What Does Blue Need?.
  • The living room picture frame picture looks almost exactly like the one in "The Grow Show", only the ducks are rubber ducks.

  • In the Mailtime song, Blue's original singing from the series pilot episode Snack Time was reused for the very last time.
