Steve: Hi, It's me, Steve. It's that you? It is! Great! Can you help me find Blue?

Viewer: There she is.

Blue: Bow, bow.

Steve: Ooh. Hey, Come On.

Shovel And Pail: Hi Blue!

Blue: Bow, bow.

(Periwinkle giggling.)

Blue: Bow.

Magenta: Bow.

Blue: Bow, bow, bow, bow, bow, bow, bow, bow.

(Steve opens the door.)

Steve: Oh, hi!

Green Puppy: Bow, bow!

Steve: Blue's friend Green is here today. We're playing with blocks. Do you wanna play with blocks too? Great! Come on. Blue and I love playing with blocks. And Green loves knocking blocks down. Right, Green?

Green Puppy: Bow, bow!

Steve: But, not to worry. She's knocking down her own blocks these days. Come on. So, can you guess what I'm building? Good thinking. I'm making a little block playground. You, know. For my toy cows. I call it Playground of the Cows. See? This is a little cow seesaw and this is a cow trampoline. You, know. For cows who want to jump over the moon? (He moos, while jumping on a trampoline.) Moo, moo, moo! And now, I want to make a slide.  Which block should I use, to make a slide? The cylinder block, the triangular block, or the rectangular block?

Kid: The triangular block.

Steve: The triangular block? Let's try it and see.  You ready, buddy? Oh, yeah. (He hums, while the cow clims up on a staris. Until, he moos slide down.) Moo! Oh, that was fun. Yeah! It's the perfect shape for a slide. Thanks. And Blue, is gonna build a really, really tall block tower. Right, Blue?

Blue: Yes.

Steve: Hey, Blue. After you've finished building your really tall block tower, wouldn't it be nice if my cows over here in the playground could, come over and visit your tower? Oh. Oh you want to build something to connect my playground to your tower. That's a great idea! What do you want to build?

(Blue leaves paw print on the left side of the screen.)

Steve: Oh! We’ll play Blue’s Clues to figure out what Blue wants to build to connect my playground to her tower.

We Are Gonna Play Blues Clues Cause It’s Really Great Game! Yeah.

So Remember, Blue’s Pawprints Will Be On The Clues, Blue’s Clues.

Look at that. The paw print rearranged itself, like blocks. How are we gonna get rid of it? 

Hey, Green? Will, uh, will you do the honors?

Green Puppy: Bow, bow! Bow, bow, bow!

Steve: Thanks, Green.

Green Puppy: Bow, bow, bow!

Steve: So, you know what we need to play Blue’s Clues? Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook.

Steve: Notebook, right. Come on.

(Steve goes to Side Table Drawer and Side Table made something out of blocks too)

Steve: What do you think Side Table built?

Side Table: It's the handy-dandy notebook unloading ramp. It's like a big slide. Prepare to unload.

Steve: Nice! Hey, Side Table. Your ramp is the same shape as our slide. Although, it looks like you used more than one block to build it.

Side Table: Well, I use rectangular blocks and triangular blocks See?

Steve: Wow! You're quite the builder, Side Table.

Side Table: Thanks!

And Think, Think, Think!

'Cause When We Use Our Minds,

And Take A Step At A Time,

We Can Do Anything...

Blue: Ba-Bow!

Steve: That We Want To Do!(does jazz hands) You know. 

I can tell I'm really gonna your help today, trying to figure out what Blue wants to build to connect my playground to her tower. 

Will you help? Great! Come on.

(as Steve leaves, a big yellow triangular block with the first clue on it comes in from the right onto the floor)

Viewer: A Clue A Clue.

Steve: A Cube?

Kid: No, a clue!

(Steve turns around and sees the clue)

Steve: Oh! (he goes over to it) There's a clue, on that triangular block. You know what we need. Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook.

Steve: Notebook, right. So, A Triangular Block.

Let’s Draw 3 Sides For A Triangle.

With A Line For The Side.

There. A Triangular Block.

So, we’re trying to figure out what Blue wants to build to connect my playground to her tower. 

And our first clue is, a triangular block. 

So, what could we build with a triangular block? Maybe, But… Think we should find 2 more clues.

Steve: Blue, do you need some help building your block tower?

Blue: Yes.

Steve: Will you help Blue build her really tall block tower? Great!

Yeah, Blue. It's gonna be important to have a good strong bottom of the tower.

Right. A good foundation for all the other blocks to go on top of, so they don't fall down.

Okay. So which foundation do you think would be best for Blue, to build her tower on top of?

Kid: The rectangular blocks.

(Green takes the other two sets of blocks and leaves the rectangular blocks)

Steve: Oh, yeah. That one, with the rectangular blocks. Looks pretty strong.

(Blue gets two small red cylinder blocks)

Steve: Blue’s building.

See that, Blue? Your strong foundation held up all those blocks.

(Blue barks happily)

I wonder what would've happened, if we had used a foundation that wasn't so strong.

Green Puppy: I’ll show you.

Steve: Ooh. Green’s gonna show us.

What do you think's gonna happen?

(Green puts the rectangular block on the two blocks and then they all fell down)

Steve: It fell. The foundation wasn't strong enough.

Oh. So now Blue wants to add this long rectangular block to her tower. But, but where should she put it, so her tower doesn't fall?

Kid: No.

Kid: No.

Kid: Yes!

Steve: In the middle? Let's see.

Look at that! It balanced! Putting it in the middle, was a great idea. 

But, what would've happened, if we didn't put it in the middle?

Green Puppy: Bow, bow, bow!

Steve: Ah, yes. Green will show us.

Steve: It fell! I guess if the blocks aren't centered, or in the middle like Blue’s, the tower could fall.

Ooh. Okay.

Steve: Um, Blue? Do you want to put that rectangular block here (the right side of the long rectangular block)?

Blue: Bow?

Steve: But it’s, it’s not in the center.

Steve: Oh! Oh you're gonna put something here too, to balance it.

Steve: Okay. So if Blue wants to put the rectangular block on that side, what should she put on this side? 

The cube, the rectangular block, or the two cubes?

The Two Cubes?

Steve: The two cubes? Let's see.

It worked! The two cubes together are the same size, as the rectangular block. So it balanced.

That's a great idea, Green. 

Let's see what happens if use different sized blocks. I think it's gonna tip. Which way do you think it's gonna tip over?

Kid: That way.

Steve: That way? Let's see.

It did tip that way! That big block was heavier, so it tipped to that side.

So, Blue. Looks like you've got the makings of a great tower. 

You've got a nice strong foundation, everything is nice and centered, and the weight is the same on both sides, so it's balanced. 

Nice work.

Kid: A clue!

(Green leaves)

Steve: Yeah! That Was Cool.

Kid: No, a clue.

Steve: Yeah. Green’s a demolition guru.

Kid: There's a clue on the block!

(Steve sees the second clue on the yellow triangular block that fell down)

Steve: Oh. Oh, there's a clue. On this triangular block. Thanks, Green.

Green Puppy: You're welcome.

Steve: You know what we need? Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook.

Steve: Notebook.

We Can Draw A Triangle.

With A Line For The Side Of The Block.

There. A Triangular Block.

So, we’re trying to figure out what Blue wants to build to connect my playground to her tower. 

And our first clue was, a triangular block. 

And now our second clue is, another triangular block. 

So, what do you think Blue wants to build with these clues? Maybe. But, Think We should Find one more clue.

Mail time, Mail time, Mail time, Mail time, MAIL TIME!

Steve: The mail’s here!

Here's the mail, it never fails.

It makes me want to wag my tail,

When it comes, I want to wail, “Mail!”

(Mailbox comes in and Steve sits in the Thinking Chair)

Steve: Hi, Mail Blocks.

Mailbox: Mail Blocks?

Steve: Oh, sorry. Mailbox. We’ve been playing with all day and I got confused.

Mailbox: That's okay. Here's your letter.

(Mailbox opens and Steve gets her letter)

Steve: Thanks, Mail Blocks. Oops. We just got a letter.

We just got a letter

We just got a letter

We just got a letter

Wonder who it's from?

Steve: It's a letter from our friends.

Boy and Girl: Hi, Steve.

Boy: We're building a building a block castle.

Girl: Don't knock it over.

Boy: This castle’s going to be huge. We're almost done.

Both: Bye, Steve.

Steve: Bye. Wow, these blocks are so incredible!

Steve: Look. Green and Blue made a little block construction site.

Steve: And they just skidooed right in. Let's go, too.

Blue skidoo, we can, too

Steve: Wow. We're in a block town.

Architect: Excuse me. 

Are you the builders?

Steve: Uh, well, yeah. We build. Actually we specialize in blocks.

Architect: Hi. I'm an architect. I drew all these things I want to build. But I need some help figuring out how to build them. Will you help me?

Steve: Um, will you help the architect build what's on the blueprints? 

You will? 

Great!

Architect: Come on!

Architect: We're building a road here, and I want the road to look just like this. But we just need to figure out which set of blocks to use.

Steve: Oh. So you want to rearrange some of those blocks to look like this.

Architect: Exactly! Should we use those blocks, those blocks, or those blocks?

Steve: Okay. So which set of blocks should we rearrange to make a road that looks like this?

Kid: Those, on the left!

Steve: Oh, you think we should use those blocks, the rectangular ones on the left to make the road.

Steve: Well let's try it and see. How would you rearrange the blocks?

Look at that, a road!

Architect: Look! It looks just like the road in my blueprint!

Steve: Wow, great job choosing the right blocks.

Architect: Come on. We have something else to finish building.

Architect: Here's the blueprint for our town’s bank.

Steve: Nice design. It's very classical.

Architect: Thanks. Which set of blocks do you think we should use to make this bank? 

Should we use, those blocks, those blocks, or those blocks?

Steve: Well, which set of blocks should we rearrange to make a bank that looks like this?

Kid: Those on the right!

Steve: Oh. Those blocks, on the right. The rectangular block, two cylinders and a triangular block.

Steve: Well, how would you rearrange the blocks to make this bank?

Steve: Looks like a bank to me.

Architect: It's my bank!

Steve: You are a brilliant builder!

Architect: Come on! We only have one thing left to build.

Architect: This is my blueprint of, the giant wall.

Steve: Oh, a giant wall!

Architect: Which set of blocks do you think we should use to make this wall?

Should we use, those blocks, those blocks, or those blocks?

Steve: Well, which set of blocks should we rearrange to make a wall that looks like this?

Kid: Those in the front!

Steve: Those, in the front. The two triangular blocks?

Steve: Well, how would you rearrange those blocks to make the wall?

That's amazing!

Wow! It's so, giant.

Architect: Those two triangular blocks came together to make a big rectangle. That's everything I want to build. Thanks for your help.

Steve: Oh, hey. Thank the amazing block re-arranger. Nice work.

Kid: A clue! A clue!

(Steve comes in)

Steve: Yeah. We make a good crew.

Kid: No, a clue.

Steve: Oh you see a clue? There it is! On that arch block. You know what we need? Our handy-dandy…

Viewer: Notebook.

Steve: Notebook. Right. So,An Arch Block.

Let’s Start With This Shape For The Outline Of The Arch.

With The Line For The Side.

And A Curve For The Inside.

There. An Arch Block.

We have all three clues. We're ready to sit in our…

Kid: Thinking Chair.

Steve: Thinking Chair. Come on. Okay. Now that we're in our Thinking Chair, let's think. 

You will help, right? 

Great! So we're trying to figure out what Blue wants to build to connect my playground to her tower. 

And our clues are: a triangular block, another triangular block, and an arch block. 

So, what could Blue want to build to connect my playground to her tower with two triangular blocks and an arch? 

Wow. There are so many ways she could arrange the blocks. I mean. 

Well, she could take the two triangular blocks and put them together, to make a rectangle. 

Like we did with the giant wall. And, and then she could put the arch block on top. 

Blue? Is that what you want to build?

Blue: Bow? (barks no)

Steve: No. Blue wants to build something else. Well, let's rearrange the blocks. 

Um…, she could take the arch block, and stand it up between the two triangular blocks. 

Yeah. Then, what would she be building to connect my playground to her tower?

Viewer: A Bridge.

Steve: A bridge! Blue could build a bridge! Is that what you want to build?

Blue: Bow? (barks yes)

Steve: We Just Figured Out Blue’s Clues.

We Just Figured Out Blue's Clues,

We Just Figured Out Blue's Clues,

We Just Figured Out Blue's Clues,

Because We're Really Smart!

Blue, Let’s Go Build That Bridge.

Wow. Look how big Blue’s tower is! 

Hey, remember how we helped Blue build part of her really tall tower? 

Now we have to build the bridge.

So, the cows can go, up the triangle which is a ramp, across the arch, and then down the second triangle which is another ramp. 

Okay, cows. Prepare to visit the tower.

Oh, boy, this is gonna be fun. 

Oh, look at tower!

That's… Hey, Bessie. 

You gotta come over here and see this tower. 

It's really cool.

Okay, here I come. 

Just wait for me. 

Oh, moo, yeah! 

That's very nice.

Look at that. It's a road. Where does it lead?

Architect: Hi.

Steve: Oh, hi. Remember, how we helped Architect do some building?

Look at that. The road connects the tower to the bank.

Architect: And the giant wall.

Steve: So, the cows can play in the playground, and then walk over the bridge to visit the tower, then walk down the road, to do some banking.

Architect: And visit the giant wall.

Steve: Wow. What a great little town we made. 

Thanks so much for all your help building it. 

You really are an incredible block builder.

Now it's time for So Long

But we'll sing just one more song

Thanks for doing your part

You sure are smart

You know, with me and you

And my dog, Blue

We can do anything

That we want to do! Bye bye. Thanks for coming. See ya.
