Commissioned by the Fitzroy Community Health Centre, The Mouth Show was the first of Handspan Theatre's theatre-in-education productions.
When the Mouth yields to the blandishments of Sugar, plaque and germs move in and the teeth are in trouble. Help comes via an outsize carrot and a giant toothbrush passed along by the audience, summoning Crunch the Natural Goodness Superhero and Bristle the Fluoride Cowboy. The baddies are soon vanquished.
The Mouth Show toured Victorian schools and community venues until 1980.
