Title number: 18154
Description: Segment 1 At a children's birthday party, children eat food even though there are flies on the cake and the biscuits have been dropped on the floor. A strange girl enters and the other children wonder who she is. She spins and her costume changes so that her top says 'HY' on the front and she introduces herself as the Hy-genie. She tells the children they are all in danger and explains that Lee has spread germs to the sandwiches by handling them after holding his dirty skateboard. She enlarges the sandwich so the germs are visible. The children are horrified. She tells them 5 rules of hygiene: wash hands before meals, wash hands after using the toilet, never eat food that's been on the floor, keep pets away from food and keep food cool and covered. The party resumes and Hy-genie leaves to teach more people about hygiene. Time start: 00:00:00:00 Time end: 00:05:28:06 Length: 00:05:28:06
