The Origins of ShowerMan
The Adventures of ShowerMan:
One day, Mother Nature was looking down at the Earth. “The planet has become unhealthy and unclean,” she worried out loud. “What if my good friend Earth gets covered with dirt and grime forever?”
Mother Nature could see children not washing their hands after playing. Some didn’t brush their teeth after eating. Some children were littering, not throwing away their garbage properly, or not recycling. Some were coughing and not covering their mouths!
Oh my, Mother Nature thought. If I don’t get help soon, the Earth will become unclean forever! Why is this happening? Why aren’t
children taking care of themselves or the Earth? Just then, a rumble erupted from her friend Earth. A mean and dirty laugh drifted up from deep within.
Mother Nature searched carefully. Finally, she spotted the sinister Dr. Dirt and his bumbling sidekicks, Icky and Sticky. As they plotted for total Earth dirt domination, she listened in.
Dr. Dirt: Icky, did you make sure the
bacteria and germs are growing and spreading correctly up in the lab?”
Icky: Yes boss, they are growing by the second!
Dr. Dirt: Well done, Icky and Sticky! Now, let’s get the children from Skylar City to cough without covering their mouths!
Mother Nature was shocked! How could such doers of dirt live right here on precious Earth? I must act quickly, she decided. Looking far up into the universe, she shouted, “Oh please, someone rescue my dear friend Earth!”
Mother Nature’s cry for help traveled far beyond our own Milky Way Galaxy. A bubbling sound came from deep in the Universe. Then
came a roar of whooshing water. Where is that sound coming from? she wondered.
Mother Nature spied something beyond the Soapy Suds Galaxy. Yes, it was the Blue Star Planet! It was made of clear blue and turquoise waters. It sparkled like diamonds. It shined with the brightness of many moons.
A burst of deep blue water spouted from the planet’s center. There stood ShowerMan. The answer to Mother Nature’s cry for help! The universe’s superhero stands for all that is good and clean in the world. ShowerMan is coming to help save Earth from dirt and grime!
ShowerMan: Hello, Mother Nature. I have heard
your call for help. Do not fear. I will save your dear friend Earth”.
Mother Nature: Oh boy! Thank goodness For ShowerMan.
While in the Lair
Dr. Dirt: Icky and Sticky, do you hear that?
Icky: Hear what, boss?
Dr. Dirt: That whooshing sound!
Sticky: Sounds powerful, whatever it is.
ShowerMan rushed into the lab like a wave of clear, running water. Instantly, it cleaned everything it touched, including Dr. Dirt’s experiments.
ShowerMan: Hello, Dr. Dirt!
Dr. Dirt: Hey! Who are you? Get out of my lair!
ShowerMan: I’m ShowerMan. I stand for all that’s good and clean in the world. And I’m here to foil your plan of dirt domination!
Dr. Dirt: Just how will you do that, ShowerMan?
ShowerMan: First, I’m going to show all the children that it’s cool and fun to be clean.
Icky: But why, ShowerMan? Being dirty is fun - and so easy!
ShowerMan: That doesn’t mean being dirty is
right, Icky. Being clean is much more fun--and it’s good for you, too.
Every time you wash your hands, you wash away dirty germs and bacteria that can make you sick and sad. Every time you cover your mouth when you cough, you keep the people around you from getting sick, too.
Sticky: But, ShowerMan, we love bacteria and germs. After all, we are germs!
ShowerMan: Not all germs are good, Sticky. Don’t let Dr. Dirt fool you!
Dr. Dirt: Don’t listen to him, Icky and Sticky. He’s wrong! Besides, we’ve already hypnotized the citizens of Skylar City!
You think you foiled our plan, Mr. ShowerMan? Then you’ve got another think coming!
ShowerMan: Save it, Dirt. I’m wasting my time in this filthy lair. I’m going to bring justice to the citizens of the city. If I see your face in town, we are going to have problems. Keep your dirt and grime away from the people of our beautiful planet!
ShowerMan blasted out of the lair, leaving Dr. Dirt in his dust - literally. Dr. Dirt fell to the ground and demanded that Icky and Sticky sweep him up and put him back together.
Now hear this, children of the Earth. Stay on ShowerMan’s side! To help keep ShowerMan tough and strong to fight Dr.Dirt, you need to remember a few steps.
- Every time you wash your hands, you are washing away dirt, germs and bacteria that can make you unhealthy and unhappy.
- Cover your mouth when you cough. It prevents your friends and family from becoming unhealthy, too.
- Brush your teeth twice a day. It helps keep them white and makes your breath smell clean and fresh!
- To stay healthy, clean your room and throw your trash where it belongs.
- To stay happy, give Mommy and Daddy a hug and tell them you love them everyday.
ShowerMan: Finally, remember these words:
We’re a grime-fighting team!
