Episode Recap

Danny Rebus brings in a painting from The Great Calvero which reveals a magical landscape. Danny tells everyone if anyone says the magic word they will end up in the painting. It has to be a tropical fruit. Lisa said 'pineapple' and she disappears. Danny accidently says the word and he vanishes too. They are trapped in the painting with no way out. Moments later, Calvero explains to The Electric Company that his brother Bandini used a magical canvas to paint a landscape, but he hasn't seen him in the past two years. He tells them that the rest of his paintings are at the studio inside the castle. At the studio, The Electric Company arrange the rest of Bandini's paintings and see Lisa and Danny moving from one painting to another. In order to find the missing Bandini, Jessica tries to communicate, but the message fails. Jessica and Keith transport themselves into the painting by saying 'pineapple'. They meet up with Lisa and Danny who say they've seen Bandini in one of the paintings. Luckily, Bandini shows up and tells them that someone has to paint the castle to finish the series. Keith sends the message to Hector to paint the castle. He goes out there to do so. Hector finishes the painting and everyone's back out into the outside world. Later, Calvero reunites with Bandini and they transport themselves into the painting to spend some time bonding together.
