Characters Present


Steve and Blue experiment with some old words and some new words.


This episode is all about words, even Blue's Clues are all words. Blue has a big bag of words from which we pull out fun words such as wiggle and enormous. They help Mr. Salt & Pepper to prepare a salad for their friends Mr. Oil, Mrs. Vinegar & Vinaigrette by using associations to figure out the meanings of new words. Later, they skidoo into a blank piece of paper. We soon learn that by using the power of words, a blank piece of paper can become an imaginative and exciting journey down a road leading to a party.
