Episode Recap

Joe invites us in, waving a mechanical red-hand thing at us that he created. It turns out that he's been busy making contraptions. He asks us if we want to see another contraption of his and we agree. He shows us what he calls "Joe's Crayon Slide," a ramp device he made that lets him slide a crayon down to Blue to use for drawing. Joe wonders if Blue's making a contraption to and Blue says that she is. In this episode we take a look at the cool contraptions of various characters and even help some to work. We see that Side Table Drawer made a contraption that helps Joe to get his notebook. Periwinkle calls us: he's created a contraption that helps him to do a "magic trick." He uses a pulley to pull up a cape and a bird in a cage is revealed. We move on to Pail, who's created a basketball-playing contraption. She places a large ball at the top of a lever (a teeter-totter) and it causes a little ball to shoot up and into a basket. We then visit with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper. They've created a contraption that lets them roll a ball, knocking over some blocks to water some sunflowers. It's such fun to watch that we have them do it again. Later, we skidoo into a computer game. There, we find Gilda the builder, who wants our help to finish building some contraptions. We pick and choose from various devices to help him finish three contraptions: "Give the Giraffe a Balloon," "Birdy's Alarm Clock" and "Feed the Mouse."
