Episode Recap

Joe welcomes us in and not long after we arrive, we hear the doorbell. Through the pet door comes an envelope - it's a talking message saying that we've been invited to the Fairy Tale Ball. Lots of fairy tale characters will be coming, such as the little old lady who lived in a shoe. Blue skidoos and we follow her in. We first meet up with Little Red Riding Hood and hop aboard a trolley which will take us to the party. As we ride along, we find the three little pigs. They're debating whose house is the strongest and decide that they should try blowing them down to see which is really the strongest. Joe talks with them, saying that we know their story, but we don't understand why they're trying to blow their own houses down. They show us a picture, explaining that the big bad wolf is on vacation at the beach. So they try blowing the houses down and, as expected, only the brick house stands. The owner of the brick house decides that the other two houses should be rebuilt with bricks and they join us on the way to the Fairy Tale Ball. Next, we meet Jack and the Giant. The Giant wants to come to the ball, but doesn't have any way to reach the trolley. We help out by assisting Jack in growing a beanstalk to reach the giant. Finally, we come across Cinderella, but before we can talk with her, she leaves in her carriage. Fortunately, she left behind her glass slipper for Prince Charming to find. We encounter three girls who could all be Cinderella, but the glass slipper only fits one, so Prince Charming is reunited with Cindrella and he invites her to the ball. In this episode, Joe plays Blue's Clues to figure out who Blue wants to see at the Fairy Tale Ball. The three clues in this episode are: Clue 1: [highlight to see]A Horse[/highlight to see] Clue 2: [highlight to see]A Wall[/highlight to see] Clue 3: [highlight to see]An Egg[/highlight to see] Based on one or more of these clues, can you figure out who Blue wants to see at the Fairy Tale Ball? The correct answer is: [highlight to see]Humpty Dumpty[/highlight to see] Since Cinderella found that third clue and kindly provided it to Joe, we now know the answer to Blue's Clues. We find Humpty Dumpty and keep him from falling again so that he can come to the Fairy Tale Ball. It's a swinging party with refreshments and dancing and lots of fun. "Blue's Room" Now that we're in Blue's Room, Blue thinks that it would be fun for us to create our own Fairy Tale Ball. That calls for dress-up time with Dress-Up Chest. Blue likes the Humpty Dumpty story, so she dresses up as an egg and has us be a horse. We practice neighing to be more convincing. We see that the rest of the playroom friends have dressed up as well. Fred is Little Red Riding Hood and Roary, Polka Dots and Dress-Up Chest have become the Three Little Pigs. We "giddee up" to get to the ball and then take part in a musical number - "Fairy Tale Friends." After that, Blue sits down on Silly Seat for a little joking around, praising one quip as a "good yolk." She asks us what our favorite story is, saying that hers is "Humpty Dumpty" because she likes eggs.
