Episode Recap

Joe and Blue meet us outside. Joe asks if we like music and says that he has something to show us. It turns out that there's a big concert happening in the Blue's Clues backyard. The stage is ready and all the guests are there. We begin quickly with our first song. It's Tickety Tock, with her special guest Toni Braxton, performing "The Planet Song." This is the song in which we name all the planets, as first heard in "What Experiment Does Blue Want To Try." She jazzes it up, singing about "Ma-ma-ma-ma-Mars" and praising Saturn's icy rings. Our other major guest, outside of our Mailtime guests, is Macy Gray, performing with Periwinkle. Her song, "Dance," inspires us to dance in a number of wild styles, such as the "Monkey." Throughout the episode, we also rock to jazz up versions of the traditional songs, including "To Play Blue's Clues" and "You're Really Smart." In this episode, Joe plays Blue's Clues to figure out what song Blue's going to sing in the concert. Side Table Drawer provides him with a kazoo, which he uses to play musical clues. After finding all the clues and playing all the notes, we find out that at the concert, Blue's going to sing: [highlight to see]Old MacDonald (Had a Farm)[/highlight to see] Joe and Blue dress the part and perform the song. There's plenty of barking and quacking in this upbeat rendition, and our musical guests even join in. "Blue's Room" In Blue's Room, Blue talks about all the great songs we heard, but says that we didn't hear her favorite. It's "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star" and she'd like to sing it. This is Boogie Woogie's cue to help: he says that he can introduce us to some real stars. We meet the stars from the song and then sing it, or at least the first verse, anyway. We then learn that stars are actually glowing balls of gas. After singing the song a second time, Blue uses the Journal to record the experience, drawing herself spinning and dancing.
