3.3 The Tooth Brushing Badge
The Tooth Brushing Badge is both an entertaining episode and a public service. I was able to install good tooth brushing habits in my 4-year-old but putting on this song.

Duggeee and the Squirrels are on a walk.
A unpleasant and upsetting smell floats across them. They meet Alain L’Odeur, a lion famed throughout the land for his terrible breath. The Squirrels introduce the idea of brushing teeth to Alain L’Odeur. Alain is not concerned about his bad breath or having yellow teeth but he is worried about his teeth falling out and having to eat soup. First, they discuss the type of brush to use. Alain has some extraordinary suggestions. Fortunately, Duggeee has his Tooth Brushing Badge.
First, take your toothbrush, wet it, add just the right amount of toothpaste and brush your tooth for two minutes. A timer appears and the two-minute tooth brushing song appears. Here are some scenes to spot as they scroll past during the song:
- Cycling through Duggee and the Squirrels all brushing their teeth.
