Characters Present


Steve has come up with a Thankful Book and so he's looking to find out some of the things that the characters in the Blue's Clues house are thankful for. They help Mr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper prepare for the big feast they're having this evening and also find out about what they & Paprika are thankful. They also get Shovel & Pail's thoughts on this, as Steve grows hungrier. Finally, before the big feast, they skidoo into a picture frame and help our felt friends out with sharing and Steve practices patience in waiting for the big feast just a little longer.




  • This episode is a Thanksgiving special.
  • On the day it aired, it was apart of a Blue's Clues all day special on Nick Jr, called "Blue's Thank You Thank You Monday."
  • This is the sixth time Steve wears his tan shoes.
  • Slippery Soap appears at the big feast, but Steve never asked him what he's thankful for. If Steve were to do this, he may have said he's thankful for bubbles.
  • Steve said the word "roughage" when mentioning if leaves could be eaten. Roughage means an object resembles rough material. This is the first time when Sidetable Drawer was in the credits and the only Steve episode in which it happened.
  • In Canada, this episode was aired in early October because Thanksgiving in Canada is a month and a half earlier than it is in US.
