Characters Present


Everything is growing in their special ways and Steve and Blue teach the viewers about growth.


Steve and Blue have been growing. They play a game of Blue's Clues to figure out what Blue wants to do outside. They get the notebook from Sidetable Drawer. The first clue was dirt. Steve draws the first clue, dirt in his notebook. Not long after that, Steve and Blue help Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper figure out how to make orange juice. After helping them out, Steve heads outside to find the second clue on the watering can. He draws the second clue, a watering can in his notebook. He heads back inside for Mail time and in the letter was a group of kids visiting a farm. After that, Steve and Blue help Fifi and Freddy, their felt friends figure out where certain foods grow on. They know that oranges grow on trees, potatoes grow underground and grapes grow on vines. After that, they skidoo back home and Steve finds the third clue on some seeds on the table. Steve draws the third clue and sits in the thinking chair to put all the clues together. Steve thought he should put the seeds and dirt in the watering can and mix 'em up. That answer was so silly it poured on his head. Steve thought he'd better put the seeds in the dirt and use the watering can to water the seeds in the dirt. The answer to Blue's Clues is that Blue wanted to plant a garden. Steve and Blue had outside once more to plant a garden. Steve sings the So Long Song and the episode ends.


  • This is the first time the felt frame became a skidoo location for the viewer.
    • This is the first time that Steve skidoos into the felt frame.
      • This is Blue's second time to skidoo into the felt frame.
  • Running Gag: Every time Steve says Blue's Clues after finding the third clue, the seeds jump on their own.
  • As of this episode, the animation has fully improved, giving the characters more movement, as well as more expressions on their faces. This is also the first time Robert M. Charde was one of the animators.
  • Running Gag: Steve saying "Grow" instead of "Go".
  • The pawprint grows two times and makes the sound of Mailbox's entrance and then splashes.
  • When Steve gets his watering can, he uses his hair from Late Season 1.
    • This is because this episode is in Development somewhere in October 1996 and Steve's hair was short in November 1996.
      • Same with previous episodes. 
  • When Steve says "You know, I can tell I'm really gonna need your help figuring out what Blue wants to do outside today", his voice from Pretend Time is used. During the Thinking Time segment (except when the Blue's Clues answer is given), this also happens.
  • The sunflower says "But that's not till later" from the previous episode The Trying Game.
  • After getting the answer wrong, the water mixed with seeds is poured over Steve's head.
