Cartoon Network has launched an animated public service announcement focusing on good hygiene practices, in support of worldwide efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Designed to be a fun way of helping children understand the importance of keeping healthy, the music video will run on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, initially across Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. It’s also available on Cartoon Network’s social channels and YouTube.
The rap features iconic characters from its shows: The Powerpuff Girls, We Bare Bears, Teen Titans Go!, Adventure Time and Ben 10. Messages include covering your mouth when you sneeze, trying to avoid touching your face and washing your hands properly. Be clean. Be cool!
Now here’s a few tips so you don’t get sick
We gotta fight the germs that make your nose drip
Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
And that’ll put everyone at ease.
Now don’t touch your eyes, your mouth or your nose
‘Cuz that’s where all those naughty germs go
We must wash our hands before every meal
A 20-second scrub – yeah, that’s the deal
Same goes when you use the loo
Wash your hands and dry them too.
And if you’re feeling ill don’t go to school
Being safe and well is the No. 1 rule.
Be clean. Be cool. Be safe. Be cool!
