How do you make a fish laugh? By telling them the ocean jokes you heard on Chompers!

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Good morning, it’s time for Chompers, your twice daily toothbrushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth. Pick a side, and brush in little circles all the way around each tooth

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!

>> Rachel: It’s Oceans Week, and today we’re gonna get your gills giggling with some funny, fishy jokes. 

Here’s your first one: 

How do you send a letter in the ocean? 

>> Kids: How? 

>> Rachel: Through whale mail! 

Whales live in the ocean like fish, but they are NOT fish. Fish can breathe underwater using their gills, but whales breathe air just like people. 

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the back too

Here’s your next joke: 

What do you call a famous fish? 

>> Kids: What? 

>> Rachel: A starfish! 

Starfish are called starfish because most of them have 5 arms around a circle body, and kind of look like the shape of a star. But some kinds of starfish can grow up to 50 arms! (SFX Stretch doink doink) Those arms are covered with little suckers, kind of like suction cups. (SFX SUCTION) 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth

Here’s your next joke: 

What did the pufferfish do when she got scared? 

>> Kids: What? 

>> Rachel: Gasp (SFX balloon blow up/puff) 


Pufferfish, also called blowfish, are known for blowing up like a balloon when they get scared! When a pufferfish meets an enemy, it quickly swallows a bunch of water to make itself look like a big strange ball -- instead of a tasty fish!  

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, but don’t brush too hard

Here’s one last joke before you go: 

What did the dolphin say when he dropped a plate? (SFX CRASH)

>> Kids: What? 

>> Rachel: It was an accident! I didn't do it on PORPOISE !


Porpoises are kinda like the dolphins cousin. They look like dolphins, but they have round teeth, instead of the pointy teeth that dolphins have (SFX BOINK BOINK)

That’s it for Chompers today, but if you need more silly sea jokes, come back tonight. Until then, rinse with water before you 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit.
