Shape Searchers is the 12th episode of Blue's Clues from season 5.

Characters Present


We search for shapes in all sorts of places, pointing them out as we see them. We also have a Skidoo segment filled with shapes. We meet some shapes and show them how they can combine with other shapes to make various things.




  • This episode can be seen on the Shapes and Colors! VHS and DVD.
  • Close captioning during the opening sequence credits Mailbox as saying I can play, when the correct line is actually Right this way, This mistake is only found on the DVD version of this episode.
  • This is the first time in the series Joe wears his red squared shirt.
  • The mystery cues from What Does Blue Want to Do with Her Picture? & from Blue's Big Mystery were used.
  • This is another time Blue's barking to the Mailtime song was muted. The last three are Weight and Balance, Occupations and Blue's Play.
  • New York City is seen during the mailtime scene. 
  • Joe and Blue walk to the store, but in the past, they have been able to skidoo there.
  • In The UK Version, Kevin wears a green squared shirt instead of a red square shirt.
  • In the UK version, after Kevin draws the third clue, the clue is still seen on the food.
