Partial transcript:

ANNIE: Time to go to lunch, Moby. Let’s go. It’s Taco Day.

MOBY: Beep.

ANNIE: Oh, right. I have to wash my hands first. Thanks for reminding me, Moby. Why do you have to wash your hands?

Annie walks to the sink. Annie’s notebook reads: Why do you have to wash your hands?

ANNIE: We touch lots of stuff every day, like when we play.

ANNIE: Even if your hands don’t look dirty, they still collect germs. Germs are icky stuff you can’t see, and they can make you sick.

An animation shows a close-up of Annie’s hand. There are germs all over it.

ANNIE: A lot of kids touch the same things, so the stuff you touch collects germs from everyone.

A kid wipes his nose with his hand, and then plays on the same monkey bars that Annie and Moby were just using.

ANNIE: Germs can get inside your body, through your eyes or through your mouth.

Annie is shown rubbing her eyes and eating a sandwich.

ANNIE: If there are germs on your hands, then you can spread them to other people. But if you wash your hands, you can kill germs and help keep you and everyone around you healthy. How should you wash your hands?

Annie’s notebook reads: How should you wash your hands?

ANNIE: Well, first you need water. You can’t wash your hands if you don’t get them wet.

Annie rubs her hands together under the flowing water.

ANNIE: The water should be warm because that helps the soap do its job.

MOBY: Beep.

Moby holds a bottle of hand soap. Annie holds out her hands, and Moby squirts soap on them.

ANNIE: Lather it up.

Annie lathers up her hands over the sink.

ANNIE: You should wash between your fingers and under your nails, too.

Annie demonstrates by washing her hands.

ANNIE: Ew…there’s some leftover peanut butter stuck under there. You should wash for at least twenty seconds.

MOBY: Beep!

ANNIE: Good idea, Moby. I can sing a song that lasts about twenty seconds. So when I’m done singing, I’m done washing my hands. I could sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.”

Annie hums “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” as she washes her hands.

ANNIE: Okay, now I’m done.

Annie holds her wet hands out toward Moby, who hands her a towel.

ANNIE: Make sure to dry your hands.

Annie dries her hands with the towel.

MOBY: Beep?

ANNIE: When should you wash your hands?

Annie’s notebook reads: When should you wash your hands?

ANNIE: Grandpop always tells me I should wash my hands when I cook. That way I don’t spread germs to my family. And I know everyone should wash their hands before and after they eat.

MOBY: Beep!

Moby throws the pizza dough into the air. It sticks to the ceiling. He lowers his arms and then the dough falls on his head and shoulders.

ANNIE: You definitely need to wash your hands after you do chores, like taking out the garbage.

Annie carries a bag of garbage outside to a trash can. Both she and Moby are holding their noses as she disposes of the bag.

ANNIE: Ew, stinky.

A dog barks and then comes up to Annie and Moby. Annie pets the dog.

MOBY: Beep!

ANNIE: Right. You should wash your hands after playing with animals.

The dog runs off. Annie sneezes, covering her mouth with a hand.

ANNIE: If you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose, be sure to wash your hands after so you don’t spread germs.

Moby hands Annie a hand wipe. She cleans her hands with it.

ANNIE: Thanks, Moby.

Annie is standing in the hallway, outside the bathroom door. There is the sound of a toilet flushing. Moby opens the door and stands in the doorway.

ANNIE: It’s really important to wash your hands after using the bathroom.

MOBY: Beep.

Moby washes his hands in the bathroom sink.

ANNIE: Right, Moby. There are lots of times when you should wash your hands. Who washes their hands?

Annie’s notebook reads: Who washes their hands?

ANNIE: Everyone touches stuff, so everyone needs to wash their hands. People who work with food wash their hands, like cooks and waiters. Doctors who work with sick people wash their hands to keep from spreading germs. Mechanics need to wash their hands after fixing cars. People who work with money need to wash their hands, too.

Images show a waiter, a doctor, a mechanic, and a bank teller.

MOBY: Beep!

ANNIE: Right, Moby. Robots have to wash their hands, too.

Moby holds out his hands. His chest opens and a sink with running water appears. Moby washes his hands in the sink.
