"Blue Prints" is the series pilot of Blue's Clues.

Characters Present


  • In this test pilot, Steve's shirt is a short-sleeved red shirt. In the first official episode, it was changed to a long-sleeved green striped shirt.
  • The animation is different from the rest of the series, but the Thinking Chair is the same throughout.
  • This pilot did not air on Nick Jr., because it was a test pilot being shown to some preschool kids to see if the show would get the green light. Although clips of it can be shown on Behind the Clues: 10 Years With Blue, the full pilot was never released on video and cannot be watched online.
  • Sidetable is yellow rather than red and orange in this pilot.
