>> Rachel: Welcome back to Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
You guys sent us some incredible imaginary animals, so today we’re going to feature your favorite mythical creatures. Before we get started:
Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and make sure to brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!
>> Rachel: Our first favorite mythical creature comes from Nate and Callen. It's the Griffin. A Griffin is a pretend animal called a HYBRID animal - which means - it's a mix of two real animals: it’s part eagle and part lion.
Griffins are thought of as one of the most powerful mythical creatures! James also likes the griffin because it’s his school mascot.
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and keep on brushing.
Our next mythical creature comes from Cooper and it’s the HIPPOGRIFF.
Just like the Griffin, the Hippogriff is part bird. It’s got the head, wings and front legs of an eagle… But it’s got back legs like a horse!
Like all other mythical creatures, Hippogriffs only exist in stories, like the Harry Potter series of books. Cooper really likes the Hippogriffs in those books because you have to bow to them.
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure to brush those molars all the way in the back.
Mateo wrote in to tell us about - Cerberus. In Greek mythology stories, Cerberus is a three-headed WATCH dog … who has a SNAKE for a tail! Mateo says he likes Cerberus because he's both scary -- AND silly!
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too.
Our last mythical creature to feature comes from Kira, Renee and Jo Jo. It’s The Phoenix. The phoenix is a magical bird with red and gold feathers.
Stories say when the Phoenix gets really old, like 500 years old!, it flies into the fire of the Sun. When it flies OUT of the sun, it's a brand new younger bird.
That’s it for Chompers. Thanks to all the Chompions who sent us your favorite mythical creatures. Come back tonight to hear about more marvelous mythical beasts! But before you go,
>> KIDS: 3 2 1 Spit!
