Steve welcomes us in. He gets a phone call: it's from Blue's friend Magenta! She talks with Blue and Steve and we get to say "hi" to her. Steve explains that she's coming over and then he and Blue chant it a few times for fun. We help Steve and Blue get ready and also help out our Blue's Clues friends with a few things. We go outside, where we find Shovel and Pail. They're playing a game of hide-and-seek, but only seem to be able to find each other. We help them out to find a duck and a snail by following animal footprints. Next, we find Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper at work on a snack. They're making a special snack for when Magenta comes over: racecars for Magenta and Blue made out of food. They start with the vegetables. Mrs. Pepper has a long piece of celery, so Mr. Salt wants the opposite. We help by showing her that the carrot is the shortest of the vegetables there. Next, Mrs. Pepper gets big circular crackers, so Mr. Salt gets small circular peas. Finally, Mrs. Pepper gets rough broccoli, so Mr. Salt gets a smooth mushroom. The final products look absolutely delicious. In the Blue Skidoo segment, we help a couple of felt friends to pick out costumes. One of them dresses up as an umpire, so we use associates to tell the other to dress up as a baseball player. They decide they don't like these costumes, so we try a lifeguard and a swimmer. After that, we try an astronaut and an alien, but it seems that the Felt Friends still haven't made up their minds.
