This DVD includes 4 episodes. The first two, "World Travelers" and "Away Great Play Date" are in the Blue's Room format, meaning that Blue and her friends are puppets, not animated characters. Blue and friends talk(!) and interact with human actors, both inside Blue's room, as well as out in the world.
The second two videos are "old-school", animated Blue episodes: "Environments" and "Special Spaces." These feature Blue with Steve, in his house, with friends like Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper and Shovel and Pail. Blue doesn't talk in these episodes, she merely makes noises, reminiscent of the teachers in the old Charlie Brown cartoons.
My children enjoyed this DVD, especially the old-style animated Blue episodes. To be honest, they never got used to Blue the Puppet, and the first two episodes freaked them out a bit. But we watched "Environments" (Steve and Blue visit and learn about the tundra, grasslands, and rainforest) as well as "Special Spaces" (especially cute when Paprika talks about changing her baby room to a big-kid room) numerous time. And "Environments" has some really catchy songs by a special guest--the late Nell Carter as Mother Nature. In fact, I am humming them now as I write this . . .
A Worldwide Adventure and More

""World Travelers" is the newest "Blue's Room" release. It features two episodes from the show. If you or your kids don't really care for "Blue's Room," you'll be pleased to know this DVD contains two classic "Blue's Clues" episodes as well. Also included are two music featurettes, "Dance" and "ABCs."
Here's what's on this from "Blue's Room:"
Blue and her little brother, Sprinkles, use their imaginations to travel all around the world! They hit Antarctica, Brazil, Egypt and more. They're looking for three keys to unlock a trunk.
"Away Great Play Date"
A most interesting episode of the show. When a friend visits Blue's Room, he accidentally leaves behind his hat. So Joe takes Blue and Sprinkles on adventure in the real world to many places to try to get it back to him. A most unusual and special adventure from this show.
Here's the "Blue's Clues" content:
There's more world exploration here. This is a Steve episode and he and Blue play Blue's Clues to discover the environment that Blue wants to visit.
A.K.A. "Blue's New Place." This episode is part of the story arc in which Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper prepare for their new baby. In this one, Blue and her friends are all creating new places for themselves. We play Blue's Clues with Steve to figure what Blue wants to do in her own special space. We explore our friends' new places as well.
As always, the episodes are presented well, with close-captioning and Dolby Digital audio."
