Teaching Your Kids How to Care for Their Teeth!
“GADZOONS!” screamed SuperBrush when he heard that the evil gang of Germ Monsters had once again invaded the city of Toothopolis. “How can the fair citizens of Toothopolis ever hope to withstand these disastrous villains? Something has to be done!!”
“But what could ever stop these villians?!?!” asked his faithful sidekick FlossBoy.
“I know!” exclaimed SuperBrush, “Only if we combine our powers of dental hygiene can we fight this evil menace! But we’ll need some help …” And with that, SuperBrush and FlossBoy sprang into action….
SuperBrush and FlossBoy rushed to stop the nasty Germ Monsters before they went too far, but they quickly found that they were too late… The homes of Toothopolis and Gumville had already come under the snare of the villainous gang.
“Oh no! We’re too late!” exclaimed FlossBoy. No sooner had FlossBoy said these words, when they heard an evil cackling laugh.
“Wait…” said SuperBrush, “I know that laugh. Its… Dr. Plaque!”
“Who’se Dr. Plaque?” asked FlossBoy.
“He’s the leader of this evil band of brigands, and, I can assure you, he is up to no good!”
“Very good SuperBrush” replied Dr. Plaque, “It’s nice to know you haven’t forgotten about me. It has been too long since we last met, but I can guarantee that this will be the last time we ever meet!”
“Who are you working for?” questioned SuperBrush, “This plan is too organized for the likes of you.”
“Oh, come now SuperBrush. You know that a gentlemen never gives up his secrets…”
“You’re no gentleman!” exclaimed SuperBrush.
“Very well then. This is all part of the master plan of none other than ToothDecay. Of course, our plan is already in motion, and there is nothing you can do to stop my evil minions. HAHAHAHAHA!”
“Don’t be so sure of that Dr. Plaque. Everyone knows that you and ToothDecay can be stopped with proper dental hygiene!”
“Oh really?” said Dr. Plaque, “And just what do you think you can do to stop me now?”
“Simple,” replied SuperBrush, “all it takes is brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day to break your evil hold on this city!”
“Don’t be so sure of yourself SuperBrush! No child remembers to brush and floss their teeth twice a day! Who has that kind of time?”
“That may be Dr. Plaque, but that is why it is so important for parents to watch their kids every day and to have regular visits to the dentist! And, it never hurts to cut down on sweets.”
“We’ll see SuperBrush… But, right now, time is my friend. The longer I have control of Toothopolis and Gumville, the harder it will be for you to win!”
“Enough of this idle chatter!” said SuperBrush. “FlossBoy, it’s time for you and I to spring into action!”
With that, SuperBrush jumped on the gang of Germ Monsters and began to scrub them away with his powerful bristles. Going from tooth to tooth, SuperBrush was able to sweep away all the filth that had accrued on his fair white city. Close behind him was his faithful companion FlossBoy. Using his super-strong string, FlossBoy was able to delve into the tiniest crevices between the houses of Toothopolis and Gumville, and scoop away all the nasty Germ Monsters that remained. After a long 2-3 minutes work, the cites of Toothopolis and Gumville were rid of their vile infestation. Only Dr. Plaque remained…
“I’ll get you for this SuperBrush if it’s the last thing I do! You may have won today, but ToothDecay and I will return another day.”
“That may be, but when you do, I’ll be here to stop you!” said SuperBrush. And, with that, SuperBrush smacked Dr. Plaque with his powerful bristles and drove Dr. Plaque out of Toothopolis.
“Wow, that was hard!” exclaimed FlossBoy.
“Yes, my boy, today was a hard day. But, it was only hard because Toothopolis and Gumville let down their guard of good dental hygiene. In the future, if they remain vigilant, we may never need to see the like of Dr. Plaque ever again!”
