Episode Recap

Joe greets us, saying that he's made up a brand-new game that he calls "Presto Change-Joe" and he'd like us to play. We agree and he tells us that he'll change something about himself and we'll have to try to guess what it is. He runs off-screen and when he returns, we correctly identify that he put on a silly hat. He tries the game again and this time, he's not wearing the silly hat anymore, but has put a different-colored shirt. Presto Change-Joe isn't the only game we have fun with in this episode. When we hear Periwinkle singing, we talk to him and find him playing with a toy taxi. It turns out that he's created a game of his own that he calls the "taxi game." Taxis are his favorite thing in the city. The idea of the game is that he singins and we listen for certain keywords. When we hear one of the words, we make a motion and either say something or make a noise. We listen carefully for each part and help Joe to remember what to say and what motions to make. Later on, we skidoo into Franny felt friend's bedroom. There we join in a fun game in which we identify something in her room based on her description and then imitate it. By the end of the game, we find ourselves as cows bouncing like basketballs and looking through a telescope. In this episode, Joe plays Blue's Clues to figure out where we can go to play Blue's game. The three clues in this episode are: Clue 1: [highlight to see]Friends[/highlight to see] Clue 2: [highlight to see]A Ball[/highlight to see] Clue 3: [highlight to see]A Slide[/highlight to see] Based on one more of these clues, can you figure out figure out where we can go to play Blue's game? The correct answer is: [highlight to see]The Park Playground[/highlight to see] Epilogue: Once we're at the playground, Blue introduces us to the game that she made. In her game, she rolls her favorite ball down a slide and then the player catches and says their name. Periwinkle, Joe and Franny all take part in the game and then we play too.
