"Ivy's True Colors" is the ninety-sixth episode of the Disney Junior animated series Sofia the First. It premiered on September 29, 2017, and is the thirteenth episode in the fourth season.


Sofia is trying to serve a dish of veggies to Clover, but for some strange reason, he won't wake up. Mia, Robin and Whatnaught come in and ask Sofia what she is doing. She tells them she is trying to give Clover a snack but he will not wake up. Robin is shocked that Clover is not waking up for food and asks if she has been trying long. Sofia confirms that and asks her animal friends what is wrong since Clover normally wakes up for food. Robin tells her it is the Deep Sleeps an enchanted sleep spell that makes animals sleep for a long time. James comes in and tells Sofia that he cannot wake up Rex, to which Sofia says it might be because of the Deep Sleeps. She is also told that a fairy is working on a cure but has not found it yet. After James leaves to check on the horses, Sofia's Amulet starts glowing and she vanishes with Whatnaught, who is holding on to her. Seconds after Sofia and Whatnaught are gone, Mia and Robin get the Deep Sleeps as well, and they collapse, snoring.

Sofia and Whatnaught reappear on a black and white island. Remembering the time she helped Princess Charlotte, Sofia realizes that her Amulet summoned her to help a Princess. The Princess in question is revealed to be Princess Ivy. They are on the island Ivy's sister banished her to. Ivy is not pleased to see Sofia again and asks if she came to see what the place she sent her to is like, to which Sofia reminds Ivy that her sister sent her here. Ivy is unmoved and tells Sofia she sent her back here to which Sofia retorts that she had to and reminds Ivy she was trying to take over Enchancia. When Ivy asks her why she is on her island, Sofia tells her she was sent to help a Princess. Ivy tells Sofia she does not want her help and leaves. A skunk named Roma tells Sofia that Ivy's butterflies are missing but she is too proud to admit it. When Sofia questions this, Ivy is surprised because she never told her that. Sofia explains that her amulet gave her the power to talk to animals, which makes Ivy more furious and angrily tells Roma not to tell anything to Sofia. Sofia explains that since Ivy is the only princess in the island, she must have been sent to help Ivy. Ivy coldly tells Sofia that she does not want or need her help and wants her off her island. However, when Sofia reminds her that she cannot go back home until she helps her, Ivy reluctantly concedes. Ivy has an enchanted butterfly net to trap them all. Sofia asks Whatnaught to look for the butterflies and the squirrel tells the Princesses that they are on the other side of the island. The Princesses head there. On the way, they run into a bear named Gruff. Ivy prepares to zap him with one of her dragonflies, but Sofia convinces him to move by getting him some Cake Fruit. When they arrive on the other side of the island, they find a meadow of colorful flowers, much to Ivy’s disgust. It turns out, her butterflies are pollinating the flowers, making them change color from black and white too. They are capable of being lured with the flowers so Sofia uses one and Ivy places her butterflies in the enchanted net. Ivy is surprisingly grateful, thanks Sofia and they attempt to leave each other respectfully. After Ivy leaves, Sofia thinks her work is done so she waits for her amulet to teleport her back, but she does not go. She finds Miss Nettle, searching through the meadow. Miss Nettle, still doing goods deeds, reveals she is the fairy looking for a cure for the Deep Sleeps. She tells Sofia she has created a flower to cure the Deep Sleeps: The Wake-Upsy Daisy. However, she needs the magic of Ivy's butterflies to make the Daisies grow. Sofia realizes her mistake of catching them, and why the butterflies came to the meadow. The Daisies all wilt and animals begin to fall victim to the Deep Sleeps, including Whatnaught. Sofia and Miss Nettle go off to convince Ivy to release the butterflies.

Miss Nettle and Sofia arrive at Ivy's castle and ask her to release the butterflies, but Ivy refuses. So Sofia and Miss Nettle break in and set the butterflies free themselves (with help from Roma), and lead them back to the other side of the island. Soon enough, Ivy finds all her butterflies missing and realizes that Roma helped them, therefore she scolds him for betraying her. Just when Sofia and Miss Nettle arrive at the meadow, Ivy recaptures the butterflies, with help from Roma out of loyalty. However, Roma falls victim to the Deep Sleeps. Upset about her friend's condition, Ivy begins to cry. This is a feeling that she never had before. Sofia tells her it is because she cares about her only friend and the only way to cure the Deep Sleeps is if the butterflies pollinate the Daisies. Having a change of heart, Ivy frees the butterflies, who make the Wake-Upsy Daisies grow. Miss Nettle gives Ivy the wake-upsy daisy, and Ivy is about to use it on Roma. However, after looking at Whatnaught, she lets Sofia use the daisy first since he has been asleep the longest. Sofia thanks Ivy and uses the daisy, which wakes Whatnaught up. As soon as he gets up, Whatnaught is shocked until Sofia tells him that Ivy is helping them now. Ivy uses the daisy to wake Roma up, and hugs him with delight when he does. After that, she is willing to help all the animals in the island. Ivy also apologizes for her evilness, explaining that she never knew what it felt like if her friend were in trouble. To Sofia's surprise, Ivy and Miss Nettle are now friends and they become partners to keep making the Wake-Upsy Daisies to cure all Deep Sleeps. Her new animal friends make her a throne. All Ivy wanted was a kingdom of her own, now she knows she had one all along, on her island prison. Before Sofia's Amulet teleports her and Whatnaught, Ivy thanks Sofia for all her help and Miss Nettle hands her the daisies. When they get home, Sofia uses the Daisies to cure her animal friends. Mia, Robin and Clover finally awaken, while Clover smiles happily at the smell of veggies.
