  • Episode Description
  • Steve and Blue have been putting on plays based on stories from books. As we get ready to put on another play, we take a look at all sorts of different stories. When Blue knocks some books out of bookshelf, we take the time to put them back on the shelf and also help some lost characters get back to the proper storybooks that they belong in. Later, we skidoo into a storybook, where we help out Bunny to make a play with us and Steve as the star characters.moreless

    • Steve: "I'm All Shook Up / Hound Dog"
      When Steve skidoos into Blue's book, the rabbit tells him that he's the king in the story and Steve takes this to mean Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll. During the segment, he references the Elvis songs "All Shook Up" and "Hound Dog," as well as Elvis's traditional "Elvis has left the building" line.
