>> Rachel: Hey there! Ready to get grossed out again? It’s gross week on Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show! And today we’re talking about the gross stuff that ANIMALS do.
Got your toothbrush? Are you ready?
Start on the top of your mouth, brushing in small circles, and brushing on every side of every tooth.
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1, BRUSH!
Do you know how cats gets clean?
Cats lick their fur to get clean! (SFX SLURP)
And when a cat licks, it ends up swallowing the fur. (SFX GULP) That hair ends up getting tangled into a ball in their stomachs.
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth. Brush the front, back and chewing part of each tooth.
To get rid of the ball of fur, the cat has to cough it up. (SFX COUGH)
And when a cat coughs up a ball of fur that’s been in its stomach . . . it’s called a hairball.
But cats aren’t the only animals that cough up hairballs! Cows (MOO SFX), horses (NEIGH SFX) and rabbits (HOP HOP SFX) cough up hairballs, too! (SFX SPROING)
Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and keep on brushing! But don’t brush too hard!
So cats do some gross stuff . . . and dogs do gross stuff too!
Have you ever seen a dog sniffing another dog’s butt? (SFX BARK)
That’s because every dog’s butt smells different! They each have their own unique smell...It’s like a dog’s own stinky special perfume. (SFX SNIFF)
Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. Keep brushing ALLL the way back to your molar teeth.
A dog’s sense of smell is more than 10,000 times better than a person’s! A dog can tell a lot about another dog with just his nose
(SFX SNIFF SNIFF) –
With just a sniff, a dog can tell another dog’s age, where he’s from, and even how he’s feeling!
So when a dog sniffs another dog’s butt - that’s how they say “hey! Who are ya?” (SFX BARK BARK
Alright that’s enough grossness for one night!
You're all done. Come back tomorrow morning for more gross week on Chompers, and
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
