The sky is only black because it is nighttime.

Dudes, look.
[soft piano music playing.]

- Guys! Did you see that? The sky wasn't only blue.
It was made up of lots of different colors.
- Uh, yeah.

[laughs.]
Who do we know that knows a lot about colors? Dude.
An artist knows a lot about colors.

Oh, that is a terrific idea.

[accordion music playing.]
- [Beep.]
Watch your step, guys.
- [Bo.]
Oh, squishy.
[Bang.]
This place is messier than my bedroom.
[Beep.]
Hey, I think we can get out through here.
Push! [StoryBots grunting.]
Boop! This place is a real mess.
Yeah, how can we ask an artist why the sky is blue if we cant find him in all this clutter? Well, we've got to keep trying.
Eva's counting on us.
- [Artist.]
No.
No.
No.
- Dudes, do you hear that? [Artist.]
This is horrible.
No.
That's not it.
It's the worst thing I've ever painted.
- [crash.]
- I've lost my inspiration.
[sobbing.]
I will never paint again.
[sobbing.]
Excuse me.
Mr.
Artist? Mr.
Artist.
Not now.
I'm suffering from a complete lack of inspiration.
[sobbing.]
Please, Mr.
Artist.
We just need a moment of your time.
Huh? Oh? Huh? Oh! Look at you.
The colors.
The shapes.
I must paint you right now.
A little to the left.
A little to the right.
Put your arm here.
And Perfect.
Hold that pose.
Don't move.
[Beep.]
Um, we're flattered, Mr.
Artist, but we just trying to Shh! You have to create when the muses sing.
[whimsical music playing.]
Oh, at last.
My masterpiece.
- Ah! - [crash.]
[cat yowls.]
[Bo.]
Psst! Do you think we still need to hold this pose? [Beep.]
Um, Mr.
Artist? Can we move now? Yes.
[groaning.]
- [Bo.]
Oh, my back.
- [Bing.]
Finally.
Um, Mr.
Artist guy? We know you're really inspired and all, and that's great, but we're trying to answer a question for a girl named Eva.
Huh? You are? Well, why didn't you just say so? What's the question? Uh, uh, she wants to know why the sky is blue.
Why is the sky blue? Why is the apple red? Or the banana yellow? Wait.
Let me show you.
I just need to collect a few things.
Oh, where are my canvases? I don't need that.
I need that.
Oh, what a mess.
- Ooh, ah, ah, there it is! - [chicken squawks.]
Okay, now pay attention.
The sky looks blue during the day because of light from the sun.
You can't see it, but light is made up of lots of different color waves.
Oh, yes.
[laughing.]
[Bo gasping.]
You mean like waves in the ocean? These waves are different.
They're invisible.
[Bang.]
Whoa! You can see here that red waves are really, really long, blue waves are really, really short, and yellow waves are in the middle.
Different color waves bounce off different objects.
Red waves bounce off of an apple.
Yellow waves bounce off of a banana.
So there must be something in the sky that blue waves are bouncing off of.
But, Mr.
Artist, there's nothing in the sky for blue color waves to bounce off of.
Are you sure? Did you look everywhere? Even for things that are really, really, really, really, really small? Hey.
Good point.
Maybe there's something really, really, really, really, really small in the sky that blue color waves are bouncing off of.
- [Bo.]
Oh.
- [Bing.]
Yeah.
[Beep.]
Yeah.
I bet that's it.
Thanks, Mr.
Artist.
[Bo.]
Thank you so much.
You're very talented.
[Beep.]
Good luck with your art.
Farewell, StoryBots.
Bon voyage.
Arrivederci.
Good luck.
[cat yowls.]
I guess it's finally cleanup time.
[suction sound.]
- Lunchtime.
- [bell ringing.]
Yeah.
[Hub and Bub.]
Hmm.
[laughing.]
[grunts.]
[both laughing.]
[grunts.]
[both laughing.]
[laughing.]
[painter.]
Ahem.
Argh! [both laughing.]
[Hub.]
Clean up.
[laughing.]
No offense But this place is a giant mess In fact it looks Kinda like a hurricane Picked a fight with a tornado A disaster top to bottom So put these toys back Where you got 'em Because rooms Don't clean themselves Though if they did Well that'd be awesome Na na na But those haven't been designed So now it's cleanup time Go clean up Clean up Come on it's cleanup time Some things go in boxes Some things of yours belong In drawers Some things go in closets So pick those things up Off the floor Pap pap na na na Because the bottom line Is that it's cleanup time So clean up Clean up come on It's cleanup time! It's more fun to make the mess Than clean it Nonetheless I mean it It's cleanup time It's cleanup time [suction sound.]
[Beep.]
Hey! You with the camera! We're here, but we're really, really, really small! You have to zoom way in to see us! You're gonna have to zoom further than that! We're microscopic! Haw haw! [Beep.]
Even more than that! But you're almost there! [Beep gasps.]
Boop.
[Beep.]
A little too much, guys.
Back it up and perfect.
So, uh, what exactly are we looking for, Beep? Well, I'm not a hundred percent sure, but it's something blue color waves bounce off of.
Guys, look over there.
What are those? [indistinct murmuring.]
[Bo.]
Ooh, there's so many of them.
[Beep.]
Let's head over and see if they can help us answer Eva's question.
- Yeah.
- Sounds good to me.
So then I said, "Orange you glad I didn't say banana.
" [all laughing.]
[Beep.]
Excuse me.
Over here.
Hi! Oh.
Well hi there, little fellas.
Who are you? We're StoryBots.
We're here to answer a question for a girl named Eva.
Questions? You mean like trivia? Oh! We love trivia.
Whaddya got? Um, okay.
Uh, can you tell us why the sky is blue? [particles laughing.]
Listen, StoryBots.
The sky itself isn't blue.
Yeah.
It just looks that way because of us.
And who are you? We're particles and gas molecules.
Yeah.
We're tiny specs of stuff floating around in the sky.
- I'm a nitrogen molecule.
- I'm oxygen.
And I'm dust.
[coughing.]
I hate to break it to you guys, but you're not blue.
We're not made of color, StoryBots.
It's just that when light bumps into us, it's the blue color waves that bounce around and scatter all over the sky.
And that's why the sky looks blue.
So it's sorta like the red waves that bounced off the apple.
Yeah, and the yellow waves that bounced off the banana.
- [O2.]
Look.
- [StoryBots.]
Huh? Hold tight, guys.
Incoming! [particles.]
Whoo-hoo! [zapping.]
Dude.
Check it out.
The sky is turning blue.
[molecules yelling.]
StoryBots, we have our answer.
- [Bing.]
Cool.
- [Bo.]
Yay.
[Bang.]
All right! - [Beep.]
Thanks, guys.
- [Bo.]
Goodbye.
See you later.
- Good luck.
- No problem, Storybots.
- [zapping.]
- [both moaning.]
[suction sound.]
[computer.]
StoryBots fun fact number fifteen million seven hundred thirty-two thousand one hundred twelve.
[ding.]
Did you know that the biggest carrot ever grown was over nineteen feet long? That's a mighty fine carrot.
Was it hard to grow it that big? Not really.
The tricky part was keeping the rabbits away.
[rumbling.]
See what I mean? Yep.
[playing calypso music.]
Ah ho ho ho ho.
Carrots.
Heh-heh-hey, yes.
Carrots.
Ho ho ho ho.
Oh, no.
Ho, yes.
All the people now.
Ooh.
Yeah.
Ha ha ha.
Carrots.
Ho ho ho ho ha! Carrots.
Ho! How low can you go? Ooh.
Yeah.
Ha ha ha.
Whoa, once again now.
Carrots.
[suction sound.]
- [phones ringing.]
- [Hap grumbling.]
Venezuela! Herbert Hoover! Chimichanga! What the? [StoryBots shouting.]
[Bing.]
Hi, boss! What are you StoryBots doing back here? We need to find out why the sky is blue.
We got the answer boss.
Yeah.
There's, like, these super tiny things in the sky called particles and gas molecules.
And they're so tiny, you can't even see 'em.
They're like invisible.
Yeah, but they can still get hit by light from the sun.
And light isn't just one color.
It's made up of lots of different color waves.
I don't need all the colors, StoryBots.
Just blue.
Well, when the sunlight bumps into the particles and gas molecules, it's mostly the blue light waves that scatter across the sky and [StoryBots.]
That's what makes the sky blue.
Just gimme that tape.
Today I'm teachin' you Why the sky looks blue It starts with the sun That shines from way up high Those sunny beams so bright Are made of different colors of light And every color acts differently Streakin' through the sky The sky's got lots of particles In the air Ooh Plus tiny gas molecules Floating everywhere Most colors pass right through them And get on with their day Ooh But blue light smacks right into them And scatters every way The light goes bouncin' around And the sky fills up with blue Inspiring painters and poets And maybe even you Whoa.
That was amazing.
Oh.
I mean, uh [coughs.]
Uh, somethin' in my throat.
I don't think there's something really in his throat.
Boop.
Hey, look, everyone.
It's Eva.
- [Bang.]
Hey, Eva.
- [Bing.]
Hey.
Hi, Eva.
Hey, down here.
[Beep.]
How are you? Hi, StoryBots.
Eva, did you see how the light hit the particles and gas molecules? And it scatters all over the sky? That's super cool! I'm gonna go tell all my friends.
- [Beep.]
We did it! - [Bang.]
All right! [Beep.]
She's gonna tell her friends.
That's the best.
Bye, StoryBots.
[cheering continues.]
