Episode Recap

Joe welcomes us in, saying that he can't believe we're here this late. He and Blue are putting his stuffed duck, Boris to bed. Joe tucks him in, saying that it's Boris's favorite part of bedtime. In this episode, we learn about "bedtime business," all sorts of different things done to get ready for bed. First, it's bathtime and Slippery's around to help Joe and Blue out. Some bath bubbles join in to sing a song, "Scrub, Scrub, Scrub." As we sing, we hear about scrubbing different parts of the body and Joe wonders just where those parts are, so we help him to figure it out. We point out our toes, our nose and our wrists. Later, Shovel, Tickety and Pail are getting ready to go to bed with "Pajama Time," but their clothes have gotten all mixed up and they need our help. We help Tickety to find her nightcap, Pail to find her pillow and Shovel to find his pajamas. In this episode, Joe plays Blue's Clues to figure out what Blue's favorite part of bedtime is.

Joe then leaves Blue be to go to sleep and plops down on the Thinking Chair to get some rest himself.
