´╗┐Felix wears a blue hoodie in front of a building with text that reads, tvokids presents.

Felix says, IS THERE A DOCTOR
IN THE HOUSE?

In a window of the building is Annie in a pink dress.

Annie says, YES AND HE'S A MOUSE.

In a window above Annie, Dr. Cheddar wears a stethoscope. He waves.

A narrator says, FEEL BETTER WITH DR. CHEDDAR.

Text on the building reads, Dr. Cheddar. In an office, Dr. Cheddar holds a paper.

He says, DR. CHEDDAR HERE TO
HELP YOU FEEL BETTER.
I WAS JUST READING
THIS LETTER I GOT
FROM A YOUNG FRIEND OF MINE
ASKING ME ABOUT HOSPITALS.
BUT DID YOU EVER WONDER WHAT
GOES ON INSIDE A HOSPITAL?
HMM?

Dr. Cheddar chuckles.

He says, IF SO, TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY.

On the letter is a drawing of a hospital.

Dr. Cheddar says, BECAUSE I'M CALLING TORONTO'S
HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN TO
SPEAK WITH RONALD COHN
BUT EVERYONE CALLS
HIM, DR. RONNIE!

Dr. Cheddar connects with Dr. Ronnie on a video call.

Dr. Ronnie says, HELLO DR. CHEDDAR.
HOW ARE YOU?
IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.

Dr. Cheddar says, YOU TOO!
I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS
FROM A YOUNG FRIEND,
IF YOU HAVE THE TIME.

Dr. Ronnie says, I ALWAYS HAVE
TIME FOR QUESTIONS
FROM YOUNG FRIENDS AND FROM YOU.

Dr. Cheddar says, I GOT THIS LETTER WONDERING
WHO WORKS IN A HOSPITAL.

Dr. Ronnie says, WELL, A HOSPITAL IS A
PLACE FULL OF HELPERS.
THESE HELPERS KNOW LOTS AND LOTS
ABOUT HOW OUR BODIES
AND OUR BRAINS WORK.

Dr. Cheddar says, AND THEY'RE ALL
IN THE HOSPITAL
TO HELP ANYONE
WHO'S HURT OR SICK?

Dr. Ronnie says, THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.
THE PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL,
THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER
TO HELP YOU FEEL BETTER.

Dr. Cheddar says, HEY, THAT'S MY LINE!

Dr. Cheddar chuckles.

He says, OUR FRIEND ALSO WONDERS,
ARE HOSPITALS OPEN ALL THE TIME?

Dr. Ronnie says, WHAT A GREAT QUESTION THAT IS.
YOU KNOW, WHEN SOMEONE
IS HURT OR VERY SICK,
THEY NEED HELP RIGHT AWAY.
AND HOSPITALS STAY OPEN ALL DAY,
ALL NIGHT THROUGHOUT
THE ENTIRE YEAR.

Dr. Cheddar says, OH, THAT MUST MEAN THERE'S
A LOT OF PEOPLE IN A HOSPITAL.

Dr. Ronnie says, THERE ARE SO MANY
WONDERFUL, HELPFUL PEOPLE,
INCLUDING NURSES, DOCTORS,
CHILD LIFE SPECIALISTS,
PHARMACISTS,
HOUSEKEEPING,
THERAPEUTIC CLOWNS EVEN.
AND I COULD GO ON AND ON AND ON.

Dr. Cheddar says, DOES EVERYONE WHO
VISITS A HOSPITAL
HAVE TO STAY OVERNIGHT?

Dr. Ronnie says, NOT EVERYONE NEEDS
TO STAY OVERNIGHT.
BUT IF THEY DO,
WE HAVE LOTS OF THINGS
TO MAKE YOUR STAY EASIER.

Dr. Cheddar says, WELL, IT SOUNDS TO
ME LIKE A HOSPITAL
IS A VERY FRIENDLY PLACE.

Dr. Ronnie says, THANK YOU FOR SAYING THIS
BECAUSE IT'S ABSOLUTELY TRUE.
IN A WAY, YOU KNOW,
EVERYONE HERE AT THE
HOSPITAL HAS THE SAME JOB,
TO HELP PEOPLE WHO DON'T
FEEL GOOD FEEL GOOD AGAIN.

Dr. Cheddar says, YOU'VE ANSWERED ALL OUR
QUESTIONS EXCEPT FOR ONE.
WHAT'S THE SECRET TO YOUR
FLUFFY PANCAKES, HMM?

Dr. Ronnie says, PRACTICE DR. CHEDDAR.

Dr. Ronnies video call disconnects and Dr. Cheddar groans and sighs.

Dr. Cheddar says, THIS IS DR. CHEDDAR HOPING
YOU FEEL BETTER LEARNING
ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS
IN A HOSPITAL.

(Cheerful music plays)

Felix, Dr. Cheddar and Annie watch fireworks go off in the sky at night.

They say, WOAH!

Dr. Cheddar says, WHOA, LOVELY.
