(1996–2007)

Trivia

In 1998, rumors started circulating that former host Steve Burns had died following drug-related problems. The rumor became so serious that Burns appeared on The Rosie O'Donnell Show (1996) to reassure his young audience that he was alive and well.
When Steve auditioned, he had a skate rat-like appearance. The network gave him a call to tell him that he should dress more family-friendly ("Can you not look like you tomorrow morning?") which is what he did.
There are three small pink snails hidden throughout each episode.
Steve left to pursue his music career and because the network had him lose his hair for the show to stay family friendly.
Donovan Patton (Joe) auditioned for the role in the show at the age of 24 doing a Christopher Walken impression, even though he never heard of the show thinking it was about the blues and pictured Blue as a jazz-singing dog.
Blue was originally going to be a bunny, then a cat but they changed it because there was already a Nickelodeon show starring a cat. It was also going to be orange.
The host was suppose to be female but it was changed when Steve snagged the role.
Co-creator Traci Paige Johnson voices Blue because out of her crew workers (they had no money to hire voices yet), she can bark more like a dog.
Steve and Blue appeared in a Got Milk? ad.
Steve wore an orange shirt instead of his green striped shirt in the original pilot.
The live actors shoot their scenes via blue-screen. The animation and voices were later add together for interaction.
The pilot, entitled "Blue Prints," was never shown in Nick Jr. (except clips from the documentary), it was self-released on VHS for a test audience of children to see if it was good enough for TV debut.
Nick (Mr. Salt) originally gave Mr. Salt a Brooklyn accent before the creators settled him being French.
Sidetable Drawer's name was first mentioned in the finale of the first season.

In the original pilot, Steve wore a short-sleeve orange polo rather than his famous long-sleeved green striped shirt. The background looked like it was painted rather than having a construction paper made background. The house even looked different.
