Hey! Welcome back to Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show!
Tonight, we’re returning to the story of Walter. He’s what’s called a LEUKOCYTE! That means his job is working in the IMMUNE SYSTEM of a kid named ALEX.
And Walter is about to take on a PATHOGEN that's made its way inside Alex's body! Remember, pathogens are things like bad bacteria that can make you SICK!
But first let’s get brushing. Pick a side on the top of your mouth, and make circles all over the inside and outside of each tooth. Ready!
Walter springs into action.
WALTER: Uh oh. Better get down there quick before things get messy.
On his way out of the command center Walter grabs his special remote with the big green button.
WALTER: Hopefully it won’t have to come to this.
And he speeds off to the scene of the crime.
Let’s switch to the other side of the top of your mouth! Make sure to get all the way in the back with your brushing.
When Walter arrives in Alex’s stomach, it’s very dark, and the pathogen is nowhere to be found.
Walter grabs his walkie-talkie...
WALTER: Hey Chief - I’m down in the stomach. Not seeing the pathogen, though. You got a visual?r
CHIEF: Got em right here on the radar. Wait.. it looks like he’s behind you!
SOUND EFFECT (Pathogen laugh)
WALTER: Holy clogged artery!
Time to switch to the bottom of your mouth!
It’s the pathogen!
Walter leaps onto the pathogen’s back and tries to wrestle it to the ground.
(ROAR SFX) The pathogen gives a shake and sends Walter flying through the air!
PATHOGEN: You’ll never stop me!
Luckily, Walter had one last trick up his sleeve.
WALTER: I was hoping it wouldn’t have to come to this...
Walter grabs the remote with the big green button and points it at the pathogen.
[BEAT - Button SFX]
PATHOGEN: [LAUGHING] Is that it? Pathetic!
Just then - The chief squawks over the radio.
CHIEF: Walt, time to move, Alex is gonna barf!
Walter Makes a Quick Escape
WALTER: Sorry buddy -- it’s time to take out the trash.
PATHOGEN: Noooooooooooooo! /// Uh oh
SCORING RESOLVE TO SOMETHING MORE PLEASANT
Barfing is no fun, but Alex felt better afterwards.
WALTER: All in a day’s work.
That’s it for Chompers tonight! Sleep well, but before we go… 3… 2… 1… spit!
