Even Adults Giggle At Fart Jokes

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It takes a lot to gross out a kid but a new Discovery Kids cartoon is trying its hardest to make little ones go “Ewww” while teaching them valuable lessons.

It’s called Grossology and it chronicles a brother and sister who must fight off evil villains such as “Fartzilla,” a giant robot that uses farts as fuel and “The Slim Slime Man,” a sewer worker made of – what else? – slime.

Executive producer Erin Wanner admits the staff had a blast coming up with the different characters and really found their “inner child” while discussing all the different types of farts and other bodily functions.

Although the staff had a gas creating the show, Wanner says they try to “present the material in the least embarrassing way” for kids and each show teaches its audience something about their bodies or the environment.

Grossology premieres tomorrow (Jan. 13) on the Discovery Kids channel.
