Episode Recap

Joe meets us outside. He's all dressed up and says that we're giong to play soccer. It's time for soccer practice. We gather up all our friends: Blue, Magenta, Periwinkle, Purple Kangaroo, Orange Kitten and Side Table Drawer and head over to the park. At the park, Periwinkle wants to know if Joe is going to play soccer with us, but he says that he isn't. Joe is going to be the coach, meaning that he helps out the team. He starts out by having all of us do some stretches, including jumping jacks. Then, it's time to start some practice, as it turns out we're scoring goals for clues. The practice starts up and Magenta gets the ball. She passes it to Side Table Drawer and then Side Table Drawer sends it to Blue, who is near the goal. Blue kicks, but misses the goal. Blue's not happy about that, but Joe reminds her that we're just practicing. He has us tell Blue to try again and also clap to cheer her on. She kicks and scores a goal. This is accompanied by a big production, with exciting music and Joe yelling "goalllllll!" We get our first clue and then get back to the practice. Periwinkle starts with the ball and then it heads in Magenta and Purple Kangaroos' direction. They both try to take hold of it, but end up bumping into each other, and Magenta's glasses get knocked off. After checking to make sure that they're both all right, Joe helps them out with a tip. He says that if they're going to get the ball, they should yell "I got it!" and that lets the other know to stay back, so that they don't get knocked into. They try it again and this time, the don't bump into each other, instead making another goal. With two goals scored, Joe gives everyone a little pep talk about how great they've played so far. We get back to the practice, since we still need to score one more goal. Blue passes the ball to Purple Kangaroo and then it goes to Orange Kitten. All of sudden, Periwinkle shows up, saying that he wants to the ball. He takes it away, leaves the soccer field and starts playing with it all by himself. Orange Kitten is very surprised by this and asks us if it's okay for Periwinkle to just run off with the ball like that. She talks with Periwinkle, explaining to him that right now, we're all playing with the ball together. She encourages him to bring the ball back to the game and he agrees. With the ball back, the final goal is scored. In this episode, Joe plays Blue's Clues to figure out what we should do after soccer practice. The three clues in this episode are: Clue 1: [highlight to see]A Truck[/highlight to see] Clue 2: [highlight to see]A Cone[/highlight to see] Clue 3: [highlight to see]Circles[/highlight to see] Based on one or more of these clues, can you figure out what we should do after soccer practice? The correct answer is: [highlight to see]Go To an Ice Cream Truck (So We Can All Get Ice Cream)[/highlight to see] Now that we've solved Blue's Clue's, we get our tasty treat. Magenta, Blue, Joe and the viewer have chocolate ice cream. Purple Kangaroo and Periwinkle get strawberry, while Orange Kiteen and Side Table Drawer have vanilla. The characters talk over the game, with Periwinkle saying that maybe next time, he'll score a goal. "Blue's Room" Rory and Polka Dots give Blue a special delivery: a soccer ball. Blue talks with us about soccer, asking what our favorite part about it is. She says that she likes kicking the ball. She asks about what other games we like. Doodle Board shows up, wanting to play a game. His game is called "Doodle, Doodle, Guess." He draws half of a picture and then we have to guess what it is he's drawing. He draws a boy named Drew, a soccer ball and a goal (a net.) We then help Drew to kick the ball into the goal by chanting "kick, kick, kick." In the Journal, Blue draws a soccer picture, saying that it's her favorite game. She performs a song, "Me and You in Blue's Room," before Moona shows up, telling her that it's time to return to Joe.
