(Steve opens the door)

Steve: Oh, hi!

(Green Puppy comes up to the viewers)

Green Puppy barks: Hello.

Steve: Blue’s friend Green is here today. We're playing (holds up a green cylinder block, a big red triangular block, and a big yellow rectangular block) with blocks. Do you wanna play with blocks too? Great! Come on.

(Steve goes to wear they're building. There were three round purple cardboard cake trays on the floor where each of them were building with blocks)

Steve: Blue and I love playing with blocks. (Green Puppy knocks down her blocks) And Green loves knocking blocks down. Right, Green?

Green Puppy: Uh huh.

Steve: But, not to worry. She's knocking down her own blocks these days. Come on.

(Steve goes to his building tray and gets on the floor and puts the blocks she's holding aside)

Steve: 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 (made from a green rectangular block and a small blue triangular block underneath it), and this is a cow trampoline (made from a yellow rectangular block). You, know. For cows who want to jump over the moon?

(Steve picks up his black and white cow and tries him on the trampoline block)

Steve: Moo, moo, (jumps really high) moo! And now, I want to make a slide. Which block should I use, to make a slide? (takes the three blocks she was holding earlier) The cylinder block, the triangular block, or the rectangular block?

Kid: The triangular block.

Steve: The triangular block? (he puts the other two blocks aside) Let's try it and see. You ready, buddy? (as cow) Oh, yeah.

(Steve makes him go to the triangular block up the top and then down the ramp)

Steve: (as cow) Moo! Oh, that was fun. (normal voice) Yeah! It's the perfect shape for a slide. Thanks.

(Blue barks. Then Steve sits up)

Steve: 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?

(Blue agrees. And then she taps a small yellow cube and a small blue rectangular block together)

Steve: 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 Blue’s Clues

Cause it’s a really great game, yeah!

Steve: So remember: Blue’s paw prints will on the clues: Blue’s Clues.

(the pieces of the paw print stack on top of each other with the palm on the bottom)

Steve: 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 comes up to the screen and knocks the pieces of the paw print away)

Steve: Thanks, Green.

Green Puppy: You're welcome.

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.

(Side Table opens up and makes a truck beeping sound as she unloads the notebook onto the ramp. Then the notebook goes down the ramp)

Steve: Nice! (picks up the notebook) 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 (two small blue rectangular ones), and triangular blocks (two small green ones). See?

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

Side Table: Thanks!

(music begins)

Steve: To play Blue's Clues, we got to find a...

Kids: Paw print!

Steve: Oh, a paw print, right. And that's our first...

Kids: Clue!

Steve: A clue?

Kids: A clue!

Steve: Then we put it in our...

Kids: Notebook!

Steve:

Cause they're Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

We got to find another paw print,

That's the second clue

We put it in our notebook,

Cause they're whose clues?

Blue's Clues!

We got to find the last paw print,

That's the third clue

We put it in our notebook

Cause they're Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

You know what to do

Sit down in our Thinking Chair

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)

Kid: 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.

Steve drawing: Let’s draw three sides for a triangle, with a line for the side. There, a triangular block.

Steve: 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? Interesting. Ok, it's time to find for more clues to figure this out.

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.

(they're building they're castle with different blocks than the blocks Steve was using. They're using big cardboard blocks with brick patterns on the them. And they start stacking up)

Girl: Don't knock it over.

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

(they both finish it by putting two small yellow brick blocks and a blue one on top)

Both: Bye, Steve.

(they're castle falls down and they both giggle)

Steve: Bye. (he closes the letter) Wow, these blocks are so incredible!

(Blue calls, and then Steve gets up from the Thinking Chair, and goes to their building area)

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!

(Steve goes to sit next to Blue’s building plate which is in the middle)

Steve: Yeah, Blue. It's gonna be important to have a good strong bottom of the tower. (Blue barks what he means) Right. A good foundation for all the other blocks to go on top of, so they don't fall down.

(Blue sets out three different sets of blocks on her plate. The one on the left had a small blue rectangular block, a small red cylinder and a small green triangular block. The one in the front had a small green cylinder and a big blue triangular block. And the one on the right had four big yellow rectangular blocks that were laying flat in two rows)

Steve: 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.

(Blue puts the two cylinders on the rectangular blocks and they stand up perfectly)

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

(Blue barks happily)

Steve: 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.

(Steve turns to Green’s building plate. She’s gonna put a long skinny blue rectangular block on top of the set with the small green cylinder and the big blue triangular block)

Steve: 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.

(Blue barks, and then Steve turns back to Blue’s building plate. Blue has a long green rectangular block)

Steve: 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?

(Blue holds the rectangular block over her foundation on the left side and asks the viewers if that's where she should put it)

Kid: No.

(she moves to the right side)

Kid: No.

(she holds it up in the middle)

Kid: Yes!

Steve: In the middle? Let's see.

(Blue puts it on top of the two cylinders and it doesn't fall, and then Blue barks happily)

Steve: 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: I’ll show you.

Skye: Ah, yes. Green will show us.

(Steve turns to Green’s building plate. Green had a foundation like Blue’s, and puts a long red rectangular block on the left side, and then it falls down)

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

(Blue calls Steve back over)

Steve: Ooh. Okay.

(Steve turns back to Blue’s. Blue is holding a small blue rectangular block)

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

Blue: Yes.

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

(Blue explains to him that she will put another block on the other side of the green block)

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

(Blue barks yes and tells him she will either use a yellow cube, a tall skinny blue rectangular block, or two blue cubes together)

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?

Kid: The two cubes.

Steve: The two cubes? Let's see.

(Blue slowly puts both the two cubes and the small blue rectangular block on each side of the green rectangular block, and it doesn't fall, it balances)

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

(Green takes the cube and the tall rectangular block to her building plate. Then Steve turns to her and Green has blocks set up like Blue has now, and will show Steve what will happen if she puts the tall rectangular block on the left side of the long red rectangular block and the cube on the other side)

Steve: 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.

(Green puts the blocks on and the tall block made the long rectangular tip to that side)

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

(Steve turns back to Blue)

Steve: 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.

(Green calls Steve and she wants to show him one more thing. Steve turns to Green. Green has set up something with two yellow rectangular blocks on the bottom, a tall green cylinder on top, a long red rectangular block centered on it with a red triangular block on the left and a yellow one on the right, and there were three tall blue rectangular blocks behind it. Then she pushes the blue blocks and makes the whole thing fall down and then the second clue was revealed on the yellow triangular block)

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.

Steve drawing: We can draw a triangle, with a line for the side of the block. There, a triangular block.

Steve: 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, we better find one last clue left. 

(Steve hears Green and Blue barking. Then he finds they playing with toy bulldozers and they made a construction site on one of the building plates)

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

(Blue and Green both skidoo into the building plate)

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

Blue skidoo, we can, too

(Steve skidoos right into the block construction site plate. Blue and Green we're on the toy bulldozers which were now bigger and all the buildings blocks in the site were huge)

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

(A block architect comes in)

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, (comes up to the viewers) will you help the architect build what's on the blueprints? You will? Great!

Architect: Come on!

(after Architect leaves, Steve puts on a construction hat and then he follows him to three sets of blocks)

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 (three yellow rectangular blocks on the left), those blocks (a small green rectangular block, with a small green cylinder block, a small green triangular black on top in the front), or those blocks (a small blue cylinder, a small blue triangular block, and a small blue rectangular block on the right)?

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.

(Blue and Green drive their bulldozers and they each pushed the other two sets of blocks out of the way and leave the ones we're gonna use)

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

(one the rectangular blocks moves up to side so the blocks make a line)

Steve: Look at that, a road!

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

(they both go over to see the road they made)

Steve: Wow, great job choosing the right blocks.

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

(Steve follows Architect to three other sets of blocks)

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 (two blue square blocks and a small blue triangular block on the left), those blocks (two small red cylinder blocks and a small red rectangular block in the front), or those blocks (a green rectangular block with two small green cylinders on it and a small green triangular block on the right)?

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.

(Green and Blue pushes the other sets of blocks out of the way and leave the blocks we’re gonna use)

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

(the triangular block goes on top of the two cylinders)

Steve: Looks like a bank to me.

(they both go over to see the bank)

Architect: It's my bank!

Steve: You are a brilliant builder!

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

(Steve follows Architect to three other sets of blocks)

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 (two small green rectangular blocks and a small green triangular block on the left), those blocks (two red triangular blocks in the front), or those blocks (a yellow arch block and a small rectangular block on the right)?

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?

(Green and Blue push the other set of blocks out of the way and leave the two triangular blocks)

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

(one of the triangular blocks goes up flips over and puts itself on top of the other triangular block to make a rectangle)

Steve: That's amazing!

(they both go over to see the giant wall)

Steve: 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.

(the architect waves goodbye as they both leave. Then a yellow arch block with the third clue comes sliding down on a big red triangular block and stops when reaches to bottom)

Kid: A clue! A clue!

(Steve comes in)

Steve: Yeah. (takes off construction hat) We make a good crew.

Kid: No, a clue.

Steve: Oh you see a clue? (he turns around and sees the clue on the arch block) There it is! On that arch block. You know what we need? Our handy-dandy…

Kid: Notebook.

Steve: Notebook, right. So, an arch block.

Steve drawing: Let's start with this shape for the outline of the arch, a line for the side, and a curve for the inside. An arch block.

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

Kid: Thinking Chair.

Steve: Thinking Chair. Come on.

(Blue skidoos back to the living room and then Steve skidoos back and then he goes to the Thinking Chair and sits down)

Steve: 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: 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?

Kid: A bridge!

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

Blue: 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

Cause we're really smart!

Steve: Come on. Let's go build that bridge.

(they go to Steve’s playground and Blue’s tower is really tall)

Steve: 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.

(Blue gets two red triangular blocks and a green arch block and puts them together to make a bridge which connects Steve’s playground to her tower. Then Steve picks up one of his toy cows)

Steve: 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. (as white cow) 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. (as brown cow) Okay, here I come. Just wait for me. Oh, moo, yeah! That's very nice.

(after the cows made it to the other side, a road of yellow rectangular blocks comes sliding in)

Steve: (normal voice) Look at that. It's a road. Where does it lead?

(they follow the block road to Architect who was finishing building it)

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 stands up and we’ve got a view of all three building plates)

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. (walks around to the viewers) What a great little town we made. Thanks so much for all your help building it. You really are an incredible block builder.

(Steve goes to the Thinking Chair for So Long)

Steve:

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

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