[THEME SONG BEGINS]

>> RACHEL: Rise and shine! it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: It’s World Records Week, and we’ve got some tricky True or False for you! If you think what we say is true…


[DING]


>> RACHEL: -thumbs up. If it’s false…


[BUZZER]


>> RACHEL: -thumbs down. 


Here's your first one: 


The largest bubblegum bubble blown in the world was 20 inches large. That’s bigger than a grown-up head. Way bigger actually!


So is this true? 


Was the largest bubblegum bubble blown in the world 20 inches? 


Find out after you switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush your molars in the way back, too.


The answer is… TRUE!


[DING]


>> RACHEL: The largest bubblegum bubble ever blown was 20 inches large. That’s like two grown-up heads!


>> DUDE: COOL!


>> RACHEL: And the bubble was blown in the US - the country that invented bubblegum!  Chad Fell set the record. He made the bubble out of 3 pieces of gum. That’s a lot to chew.  I wonder how it went when the bubble blew up! 


[STRETCH AND SPLAT]


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush, too. 


Here’s another true or false: 


27 is the world record for the most tennis balls held in one hand. 


So is that true or false? Is 27 the world record for the most tennis balls held in one hand? 


The answer is… True! 


[DING!]


>> KID: WOW! 


>> RACHEL: Right now! The world record for the number of tennis balls held in one hand keeps changing - The record was 23 for a while. Then 24. Then 26!  And today it’s 27 balls in one hand!


>> KIDS: HOW?


>> RACHEL: I’ll tell you more after you switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard.


People train a lot to be able to hold over 20 balls in one hand. It’s not easy - you have to pile them up one by one with your other hand. If one ball moves, all the other ones might fall. 


[FALLING WHISTLE]


>> RACHEL: Mithlesh Choudary is the man who broke the record with 27 balls…


[BOING!]


>> RACHEL: He wanted to challenge himself and show people that if you work really hard on something, you can succeed! 


[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: That's it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more true or false. Until then… 


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
