Will Sherlock and his friends get their bone back? Find out on tonight's Chompers.

Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Welcome back, it’s time for Chompers your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Tonight we return to the magical land of Animalville and the story of Sherlock the dog who has lost a wonderful bone. 

Before we continue, 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: Sherlock’s friends Fanzy the elephant and Carmen the eagle are using their senses to track down the bullies who stole Sherlock’s bone. Carmen’s got an idea:

>> CARMEN: Alright Fanzy, use your sense of vibration -- what can you feel?

>> FANZY: My feet can feel the vibrations from… 


>> FANZY: Oh… those vibrations… That’s  Patty the Giraffe. I’d recognize her stomps hundreds miles away. So heavy and yet so elegant. 

>> CARMEN: Hey … Fanzy can you focus up on the bone?

>> FANZY: Sorry. 


>> FANZY:  Yes! I’ve got it! I can feel those bully HYENAS stomping! Follow me!


>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too!

The three friends set off with Fanzy leading the way and soon found the bullies!

Fanzy let out a GREAT BIG TRUMPET.


>> RACHEL: Carmen gave a majestic SCREECH!


And Sherlock BARKED a terrifying bark!


>> SHERLOCK: Give me back my bone!

>> BIG MEAN HYENA: We don’t have it anymore!

>> TINY MEAN HYENA: We only wanted it because you had it!

>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and make sure you’re brushing your molars all the way in the back.

Sherlock was crushed.  Would he ever see his wonderful bone again?

>> CARMEN: Don’t worry Sherlock. I’ve got this. I’ll fly around and use my super sight to find your bone! It’s gotta be close by!

>> RACHEL: Fanzy and Sherlock watched as Carmen made lazy circles in the sky.


>> RACHEL: Suddenly Carmen DIVED out of sight … and then she was BACK! She coasted to a landing with her friends, and they could see she had something in her beak.

Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and keep brushing.

>> SHERLOCK: Oh my dog, 


>> SHERLOCK: I can smell warm soup on a snowy day!  Snuggling up with my favorite human! A tasty treat after a long hike.  It’s my bone!  

>> RACHEL: Carmen put up her wing for a high five. Fanzy swung up his trunk for a high five. And Sherlock gave them both a paw. 

See, with the help of our friends, life SMELLS a little bit sweeter.



>> RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers tonight. Great job brushing. Come back tomorrow and don’t forget to…

>> KIDS: 3 2 1 Spit!
