Episode Recap

Joe invites us in. He has a whole bunch of costume material. He puts on a hat and calls himself "Explorer Joe." He goes on a safari and quickly finds an animal - a giraffe. It turns out to actually be Blue, who is participating in dress-up as well. In this episode, we watch as our favorite characters dress-up and play pretend, looking at their costuming and trying to figure out what they're going to dress up as. After having some fun with Joe, dressed up as a robot, we hear Pail and go check things out. We see that she has a pink nose, pink ears and a squiggly tail ready to go - she's dressing up as a pig. Shovel, meanwhile, made an outer space suit and a helmet. He dresses up as an astronaut and pretends to explore outer space. We then meet up with Slippery, who's acting as a crossing guard, with a red vest and a hat and an octagonal sign that's red on one side and green on the other. We wait as he lets Periwinkle through and then cross ourselves. Later, we skidoo into a theater, where we find an ostrich who wants some help putting on a play. We help her out by choosing proper props and costumes from sets of three. The play is about a princess and an elephant. An elephant (Joe) shows up with a flashlight and makes a princess (Blue) angry because she was trying to sleep. He puts in a silly beany hat and sings her a lullaby using sheet music that we found and the princess happily goes back to sleep.
