My name's Joaquin.
- [all.]
Hi, Joaquin! - Hey, man.
I have a question for you.
What's your question, Joaquin? What happens when you flush the toilet? [all snickering.]
What's your question? What happens when you flush the toilet? [all laughing.]
I'm sorry.
I must not have heard you right.
[stifled laugh.]
Can you say that again? What happens when you flush the toilet? [all laughing.]
[laughter continues.]
Guys, guys.
We all know toilets are hilarious, but I think Joaquin wants to know what happens to all the water after you flush the toilet.
- Right, Joaquin? - Yes.
So, do you any of you know what happens to the water after you flush the toilet? Uh, it goes down? Into the dirt? Into a landfill? In the garbage? Maybe it goes down into a bigger toilet, and then that toilet flushes into an even bigger toilet! And it just keeps goin' on like that forever! It's, like, toilets all the way down, man! Hmm I guess? Oh! I got it! I know where we can find the answer! - [beeping.]
- [horn blows.]
StoryBots, prepare for transport! Let's find out what happens when you flush the toilet! [all.]
Outer world, here we come! [whooshing.]
Unh! Huh? Whoa.
Not bad.
[StoryBots yelling.]
Aaah! Uhhh-aow! Eeeeee! Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah! Boooooop! [whooshing.]
[StoryBots yelling.]
[Bang groans.]
Ahh.
Hey, Bo, where are we? We're here to talk to my friend Roger! He knows all about toilets.
He's a plumber! Ah, come on now, ya stinkin' toilet! What you tryin' to do, give me the business? Oh, whoa-ho-ho! Hey, buddy, easy! What did I do to you?! [sing-songy.]
Oh, Roger! [Roger grunting.]
Oh.
Hey, Bo! Hey, StoryBots! What are you guys doin' here? We were hoping you could help us answer a question for a kid named Joaquin! Yeah! He, like, wants to know what happens after you flush the toilet.
Well, ya know, when it's workin', unlike now, ah oh, boy the toilet is able to flush our waste away.
- [all.]
Oh! - OK! It ain't too pleasant, but, you know, I mean, it's gotta go somewhere, right? Oh, boy.
Ooh.
So, where does it all go? You know what? That's a very good question.
Um, here.
I can show you.
Let's see here, ah, we got Ah! There it is.
Yeah, this is it.
- OK.
So, you see this here? - [Bing.]
Uh-huh.
It's a blueprint, right? Toilet, here in this house, that's this toilet right here connects to a pipe that runs underground, OK? And then that pipe connects to an even bigger pipe that runs along the whole street.
That toilet's got a pipe, and that toilet's got a pipe all the toilets got pipes! So, all the houses on the street connect to one big pipe? You got it, Beep.
And anything we flush away will end up down there? Anything? No, no, no, no.
Look, you can't just flush anything down the toilet, all right? The only things that should go down the toilet are this: water, waste, and toilet paper.
OK? Ya hear me? Water, waste, and toilet paper.
Got it! No baby wipes or cotton swabs or cotton balls or makeup thingies or doodads nothin'.
Otherwise, you could cause real big problems down there.
[toilet makes burping sounds.]
See? See? This is what happens when you flush any old junk down there.
- I'm tellin' ya.
- [male voice.]
Junk? [all.]
Huh? Who are you callin' junk?! Oh, she's our friend, and a good toy, too! - [toys crying.]
- Your friend? There's a toy in the toilet?! Yeah, it's the captain! She She got flushed down the toilet by accident! And it's almost bathy time! Oh, someone's just gotta save her! [sobbing.]
She must be in that big pipe that Roger told us about! Hey, Roger, that big pipe you mentioned, the one that connects all the houses on the street Yeah, what about it, Beep? Where does that go? Oh.
Well, that one goes to an even bigger pipe that connects all the streets in the neighborhood to a real special place.
A special place? That's right.
That waste is taken to a place called a "wastewater treatment facility.
" - [banging on door.]
- [man.]
Hey! Is it fixed yet? I'm burstin' at the seams here! Oh, no.
Code red, family of four! This is not gonna be pretty! [woman.]
It's gotta be ready by now, right?! - [man.]
Come on! - One second! I'm almost done in here! [girl.]
Mom, I really have to go! - [family all yelling.]
- Aah! [banging on door.]
Hey, StoryBots! I need ya to help me out, OK? Just go over to the toilet and just flush it over and over and over for me, OK? - [banging, yelling.]
- This door ain't gonna last forever! - Come on, team! - Yeah! - Come on, guys! - Boop! Whoa.
How are we ever gonna reach that? [Bing.]
Hey, I got an idea! StoryBots, hurry! I can't hold 'em much longer! [exclaims nervously.]
[StoryBots yelling, screaming.]
A little higher! Hurry, Bing! This is really heavy! I can't hold you much longer, dudes! [grunting.]
Come on, Bing, you got this! Unnhhhh! - [flushing.]
- I got it! It's flushing! Whoo-hoo! Uhh! Waaa! [all yelling, screaming.]
- [splash.]
- Oh aaaah! [all screaming.]
- Oh! - [banging.]
Aah! It's workin'! We did it, StoryBots! Hey StoryBots.
Where'd ya go? [whooshing.]
[computer keys clacking.]
- Huh? - Hmm? Hmm.
- [rumbling.]
- [both scream.]
[gasps.]
Aaaah! [both giggling.]
Toilet.
[both giggling.]
When you press down the flusher It pulls on a chain Which tugs on a plug And opens a drain The water in the tank Drops down in the hole Through a short wide pipe Into the toilet bowl And that's what makes the toilet flush The water comes whooshing In a big loud rush And down through an S-shaped pipe It flows So the sticky stuff All gets carried below - Look at it go - Whee! Now up in the tank When the water's all gone There's a float that drops To let a valve turn on When the tank gets full Then it floats to the top Where it closes the valve And makes the water stop Then it's ready for another good flush You know Which is good 'cause you'll need it When you've gotta go It's a marvelous thing But you gotta take care You can't just throw Anything in there Don't flush an old sock Or a baby wipe It'll make a big mess When it clogs the pipe But a little toilet paper is A-OK So when you're through You can safely flush it all away And don't forget to wash your hands! [whooshing.]
[StoryBots screaming.]
- [clanking.]
- [StoryBots grunting.]
- [water gurgling.]
- [all yelling.]
[thud.]
- Ahh.
- Ohhh.
- [footsteps.]
- [all.]
Huh? What in the Ahab are you StoryBots doing down here?! We're answering a question for a kid named Joaquin.
He wants to know what happens after you flush the toilet.
Well, ya better be more careful.
You could have fallen in there.
[StoryBots.]
Eww! [gurgles.]
[Bang.]
Not cool, man.
Oh, yes.
Those murky waters are filled with waste and bad bacteria that can make you real sick-like.
But how are we gonna get outta here?! Yeah! We'll never make it all the way back up there! [gurgling.]
Aye.
That's why I'm foraging forward to the open seas! From there I can find me way back to Bathy Time! Back to me boys.
[tin whistle playing Irish ballad.]
Open seas? But our friend Roger said this pipe goes to a place called the Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Exactly, Beep.
And if the legend holds true, the open sea lies beyond four mighty obstacles: the Gate the Machines - the Beasts - [creature growls.]
and the Light.
[toilet flushes in distance.]
[nervously.]
What was that? [gurgling.]
[in slow motion.]
Ohhh flush! Aaah! You're gonna have to do better than that! This captain's headin' back to Bathy Time! [all screaming.]
[Captain.]
Aaah! Heave ho, StoryBots! Batten down the hatches! [all screaming.]
[yelling.]
Ha-ha! Nothing can stop this ship! - [thud.]
- Oh! [gasps.]
The first obstacle, StoryBots.
[Bing, Bo.]
Wow [Captain.]
The Gate.
Legends tells of its giant screens that keep big trash and baby wipes from entering the Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Uh, Cap'n, it's kinda, like, keepin' us from entering too, dude.
Aye! That's why a good captain always comes prepared! [mechanical sounds.]
[StoryBots all exclaim.]
- Whoa! - Hey, man! Ha ha! Hey, look.
Guys! Oh! There's a hole in the screen up ahead! Yo-ho! Through the hole we go! Whoa.
Where are we now, Captain? 'Tis the Separation Tank, Bang.
It's where the water is given time to settle.
The heavy stuff sinks to the bottom, and the grease and oil float to the top.
This prepares the tank for obstacle number two: the Machines.
Oh! What kind of machines are we talkin' about here? Skimmers.
They sweep across the water to remove grease and oil.
Like those! I don't think I like the skimmers! Grab tight, StoryBots! [all screaming.]
- [all cheering.]
- [Bing.]
Whoo-hoo! [Beep.]
We did it! [Bang.]
Aha! We survived, man! Quiet, StoryBots.
- [sonar beeping.]
- They're coming.
Uhhhh, who's coming? Obstacle number three the Beasts.
[whooshing.]
[making motorboat sounds.]
Huh? [continues sounds.]
Huh? Aaah! [both giggling.]
Boat.
[both giggling.]
[motor starts, revs.]
[both giggling.]
I'm the captain of the boat And I really like to float - On the water - Out on the water So put on your sailin' best Grab a life vest And take a ride on a boat with me We'll take an ocean liner - It's really large - That's big! And with a tugboat We'll tow a barge A sailboat is moving When the wind is blowing But if it isn't We better start rowing I'm rowing.
Just for a laugh We can take a rubber raft But we'll get there sooner If we're sailing in a schooner - Yeah - Lookie there! It's called a tall ship Because it's tall And there's a dinghy It's kinda small - That's small.
- A supertanker - Delivers oil - Wow! And a steamship Is powered by boiling water Wonders can be seen Sitting in a submarine If it's just me and you We can take a canoe - Yeah - Where's my paddle? I'm the captain of the boat And I really like to float - On the water - Out on the water So put on your sailing pants And do your sailing dance - Take a ride on a boat with me - Let's go! - Go sailin' on a boat with me - Get onboard.
Boats are fun, you'll see - [foghorn blowing.]
- [bell dings.]
[whooshing.]
- [sonar beeping.]
- [Bo.]
Uh, Captain? Those blinking thingies are getting closer! For the love of Poseidon, StoryBots, they're almost here! - Who's almost here? - [crash.]
The bad bacteria! [gobbling noises.]
[bacteria trilling.]
There's only one thing that can save us now, StoryBots [snapping sounds.]
[slurping, gulping.]
the good microorganisms! [trilling.]
[slurps, munches.]
Mmm.
- Mmm.
- Mmm.
Oh! Hello, Captain.
And look who she's got with her! StoryBots, how are you? We're better now.
Yeah, thanks for, like, savin' us and stuff.
Oh-ho! No problem at all, Bang.
It's our pleasure! And our job.
Your job? What do you mean, it's your job? Well, the bad bacteria, they're too small to get skimmed out of the water by machines.
So we gobble them up! Oh, yes.
Lots and lots of them.
We get so big, we sink to the bottom.
To the bottom? That doesn't sound very good.
Oh, it's all right, Bing.
It's really kind of cozy down here.
Quite cozy indeed.
Plus, when we sink, the cleaner water moves on.
Sardines in a can! They're back! [beeping.]
And there are even more of them than before, man! Quick! What are you waitin' for? Gobble 'em up! Ohh.
Hate to say it, old chap, but I'm feeling rather full.
Oh, yes.
I couldn't eat another bite.
- [farts.]
- Oh.
Excuse me.
There's only one way out now, StoryBots.
The last obstacle: the Light! [clanking.]
Ah! What happens in the light, Captain? Disinfection.
[motor revs.]
Wait! What's disinfection?! It's where bleach and ultraviolet rays are used to destroy anything that's left in the water! - [crash.]
- [alarm blares.]
But, uh, Captain? We're in the water! [chittering.]
[crash.]
We've got no choice, Beep! [all.]
Aaaahh! Hey! Hey, look! The bleach and ultraviolet rays are destroying the waste and bad bacteria! They're also, like, totally destroying this ship, dude! Just a few more seconds before she blows, StoryBots! This is it! [sonar pings.]
[pinging continues.]
[all.]
We made it! - Whoo-hoo! - Yeah! All right! My word.
I can't believe me own eye.
It's it's [Bo.]
The great blue ocean! [all.]
Wow! Man, that's pretty.
[bubble pops.]
Thank ya, StoryBots, for being the crew this captain never knew she needed.
And thank you, Captain, for helping us answer Joaquin's question! Oh, it's me pleasure.
But I must be runnin' now.
Bathy Time's a-waitin'.
- G'bye! - Bye, Captain! Thank you! We really appreciate it! Thanks for all your help! Fair winds, StoryBots! And good luck on the high seas! [whooshing.]
[robotic voice.]
StoryBots Fun Fact number 37,109.
[mechanical sounds.]
[bell dings.]

[telephones ringing.]
Marshmallow! Suspenders! Beehive! Huh? [StoryBots yelling.]
[Bang.]
Whoa.
Boy, these landings are, like, totally doing a number on my back, man.
[haywire noises.]
We don't have time for chiropractics! I told you StoryBots to get an answer! We got the answer, boss! We know what happens when you flush the toilet! Yeah! When you flush, the water goes from a small pipe in your bathroom to a big pipe under your street to an even bigger pipe in your neighborhood! That pipe goes to a place called a wastewater treatment facility which makes dirty water clean again.
First, giant screens stop all the big junk from getting inside the facility.
Next, the water is left to settle so the dirt and muck sink to the bottom and the grease and oil float to the top.
Then giant machines remove all that gross stuff.
Blech! Next, good microorganisms are put into the water, and they gobble up the bad bacteria that are swimmin' around.
They get so full from their feast that they sink to the bottom.
That way, the cleaner water can move on! Finally, bleach and ultraviolet light are used to destroy anything bad that's still left in the water! That's called disinfection.
And once it's done, the clean water is sent back to rivers, lakes, streams, oceans and seas, creating more safe water for everyone! And [all.]
That's what happens when you flush the toilet! Just gimme that tape.
- When you flush your toilet's waste - Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom It's rushed off to a place Where it's made clean again Then put back in The rivers, seas, and lakes First through a small pipe In your house it flows Then through bigger pipes Underground it goes To the wastewater treatment facility - Which has the ability to clean it up - How? First, with screens The water's routed to Which the biggest junk Just can't squeeze through And then it's left to sit 'Cause once it settles a bit The grease and oil float The dirt and muck sink down Allowing the machine To scoop those layers out And we're just gettin' started.
'Cause to fight the bad bacteria Swimmin' through it Good microorganisms Are added to it They gobble that bad bacteria up And then sink So they all get left behind There's one more step that uses bleach And ultraviolet light Which each destroy Whatever's bad that's left And that's called disinfection - When you flush your toilet's waste - Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom It's rushed off to a place Where it's made clean again Then put back in The rivers, seas and lakes That's not gross! - When you flush your toilet's waste - Bom-bom, bom-bom-bom It's rushed off to a place Where it's made clean again Then put back in The rivers, seas Oceans, streams and lakes Whoa! That was really pretty good.
- Whoo-hoo! - All right! - We got an answer! - Hey, look! It's Joaquin! - Hi, Joaquin! - How ya doin', man? Hello, there! Joaquin, we found out what happens after we flush the toilet! Isn't the process just incredible? I had no idea that people clean water after we flush the toilet.
Thanks, StoryBots! Bye! - Bye, Joaquin! - Nice to meet you, Joaquin! [Bing.]

After a while, crocodile! - [Bang.]
Hang loose, mongoose! So long! - Bye-bye! - Auf Wiedersehen! - Au revoir! - Ciao! - Hasta luego! - Sayonara! - Shaloma! - Arrivederci! - Paalam! - Until next time! - Take care, buddy! See ya!
