As we enter Blue's Room today, Blue greets us and says that we are just in time for her family party. She leads us over to a brightly decorated table where Fred, Polka Dots, Joe, and Mailbox are seated. She explains that her party is a party for everyone she knows, and all their families. She asks who is in our family, and comments how nice they sound. More guests arrive—first, the Shaker family (Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, Paprika, and Cinnamon), then Roary and his grandma, who has baked a sweet potato pie for the occasion, and finally Shovel and his sister Pail. The party is about to get underway when Mailbox notices that there's still one vacant place at the table. Joe explains that that chair is being saved for someone really special in Blue's family. Blue asks if we want to know who, and after a bit of coaxing, reveals that she has a new baby brother! Everyone is shocked and ecstatic at this news. Polka Dots asks where he is, and Blue and Joe get up from the table. They lead us over to a picture on the wall, and Blue announces that her baby brother's in a place called Puppyville, accessible through the painting. Blue asks if we'll come along to help. We agree, and Blue and Joe skidoo into Puppyville. Once there, they start asking each puppy they see if they are Blue's brother. The puppies only say that they could be. Blue asks herself how they will find her baby brother. Suddenly, a large gold pawprint appears. Blue and Joe realize what it means almost instantly: to find Blue's baby brother, they must play a special game of Gold Clues to figure out who he is! Both Blue and Joe are excited at this prospect. As they review the rules of the game, Joe is given a gold notebook, and they discover a golden Thinking Chair on top of a hill! Joe excitedly asks where they look for Gold Clues. A train whistle sounds, and some puppies tell them to take the Puppyville Express, as it is the quickest way to get all around Puppyville. Blue and Joe are about to hop on, when Blue spots a white puppy hiding behind a bush. Blue and Joe go over to introduce themselves, but the puppy ducks out of sight. Deducing that he must be shy, Joe and Blue gently tell him their names and invite us to do the same. The puppy introduces itself as Sprinkles and explains that it is here at the train station because he has no spots, and is going on an adventure to try and get some. Joe and Blue invite him to come along with them. Sprinkles joyfully accepts, and the three hop on the train. After a few minutes, the train arrives at the first stop, Alphabet City, a place where all the buildings are shaped like alphabet letters! They quickly meet another puppy, ABC Puppy, who formally welcomes them to Alphabet City. Suddenly, a bunch of balloons starts floating away. Joe, runs over to grab them, and is pulled into the sky! ABC Puppy whistles for a taxi so they can chase after Joe and the balloons. He explains that the way to make the taxicab move is to follow the alphabet. Sprinkles admits that he doesn't really know the alphabet yet. Blue offers to help, and we all sing the alphabet, stopping along the way to remember what letter comes next. When we finish, Blue compliments Sprinkles on his good work, and Sprinkles excitedly confirms that he learned the alphabet! Suddenly, there is a bright flash, and pink spots appear on Sprinkles. Sprinkles is dumbfounded as to how this could have happened, but Blue realizes it must have been because he learned the alphabet! As Sprinkles celebrates, Joe finally starts to float down and is rescued by all three puppies. Joe congratulates Sprinkles on his spots, and he, Blue, and Sprinkles board the train for their next location, Color Town, made of various art supplies. They meet one of the resident artists, Colors Puppy, who leads them over to his latest project, a rainbow shortcut to the Numbers Kingdom. Trouble is, it's not fully painted. Colors Puppy explains that some of the colors are gone. Sprinkles offers to fix it, but admits that he doesn't know his colors yet. Blue offers to help. Using colorful clouds and a giant paintbrush, we soon find and mix the right colors to complete the rainbow. Blue compliments Sprinkles, and with another flash, orange spots appear on Sprinkles as a reward for learning his colors! After this, Colors Puppy invites them to take his shortcut, and he and Joe quickly slide up the rainbow. Sprinkles admits he's nervous, and Blue offers to ride with him. On the count of three, both slide up the rainbow and down the other side into Numbers Kingdom. They quickly meet the Princess of Numbers Puppy, and Joe decides to dress the part, returning in full armor as Knight Joe. The princess offers to show them through her castle, but says that they must know the Clapping Codes to get through the doors. Seeing that these codes involve numbers, Sprinkles admits he doesn't know his numbers yet. Blue offers to help, and using our numeracy skills, we clap down each door, even using simple addition to get through the tower door. Once all the doors have been opened, Sprinkles receives purple spots as a reward for learning his numbers. Joe changes out of his knight costume, and the three puppies board the train for a trip to Shapes Forest. Once there, they meet Shapes Puppy, who tells them that they must reach Shapes Island in order to complete their quest. To do so, he says, they must build a sailboat out of shapes. Luckily, the Shapes Forest has shapes in abundance. Sprinkles asks if he can help, and we help him locate the perfect shapes to make a seaworthy vessel, even cutting a square to create the shape we need. Once the sailboat is complete, Sprinkles receives yellow spots as a reward for learning his shapes. Joe dresses up as a boat captain and the three of them hop in the boat and blow it across the ocean to the island. Once there, Sprinkles plays a coconut shell game with us to find the third and last Gold Clue! All three excitedly hop back on the train. It chugs all the way back through Puppyville and up the hill, stopping in front of the Golden Thinking Chair. As all three hop out, all the Puppyville puppies arrive to watch Blue and Joe sit in the chair to answer the most important question of all.
In this episode, Joe, Blue and Sprinkles play Gold Clues to figure out who Blue's baby brother is. The three clues in this episode are:
1: The word PUPPY
Based on one or more of these clues, can you figure out who Blue's baby brother is?
After the clues have been solved, Sprinkles sticks his head over the edge of the chair, eager to know who blue's baby brother is. Joe vacates his seat, and Sprinkles sits next to Blue in the Golden Thinking Chair. We tell him the incredible news. Sprinkles is shocked, and it is confirmed when there is one final flash, and blue spots appear on Sprinkles, just like Blue's. The whole hill celebrates as Sprinkles and his big sister unite in song. Sprinkles, Blue and Joe all skidoo back to Blue's Room, where Blue introduces her family to its nearest member. Joe officially kicks off the family party, and Sprinkles joins his sister at the head of the table. He's not there for long, though, before the whole room begins to dance in celebration. Blue and Sprinkles thank us for helping them find each other as we exit.
