Show 10: Who Wants to Trade for Some Old Tracks?

Ruff's new Ruff Ruffman garden gnome was stolen! At least the culprit left footprints behind! With all of this crime solving, Ruff hadn't bathed, so Blossom took action by spraying Ruff with the hose to get rid of the stink and the flies.

Without flies, Ruff didn't need his fly swatters anymore, so he sent Rubye and Shreya to trade the fly swatters—and keep trading up and up and up—until they got the best thing possible. After trading with family, friends, and neighbors, and then posting online, Shreya ended up with two tickets to a professional baseball game and Rubye got a family four pack to an amusement park! All just for two fly swatters—wow!

To learn more about the footprints left by the garden gnome thief, Emmie and Marco headed to the Natural History Museum to become sleuths and analyze fossilized dinosaur footprints. Emmie measured Marco's stride when he was walking and running and measured real dinosaur footprints too! Then, they became dinosaurs themselves for the Great Dinosaur Dash (Emmie won!).

Marc and Jay stayed back at Studio G, where they scored 40 points in the Halftime Quiz Show.

Finally, all of the FETCHers met back at Studio G for the Triumph Tally:

Marco and Emmie scored:

  • 75 points: for using their powers of deduction to retrace the steps of real dinosaurs!

Shreya scored:

  • 85 points: for trading up and up all the way to a lovely necklace!

Rubye scored:

  • 75 points: for getting her mom to part with her sea monkeys and getting her dad to part with Roy the moose, but then trading Roy the moose for items not nearly as cool (in Ruff's opinion)

BUT: "Is that all the points a dog can give?"

Today's 5 bonus points went to Emmie for winning the Dinosaur Dash! But with 85 points, Shreya was the daily winner! She won two dinosaur-foot-shaped fly swatters! As for the gnome heist, it turned out that Spot Spotnik "borrowed" the gnome because his cat needed a scratching post, and now the gnome is ruined!
