Teeth appears in a Sesame Street sketch first shown on episode 0406.

In the sketch, Teeth visits an employment agency to find a job. He can't take the proposed jobs of smelling and listening, but he knows a nose and an ear that can. When asked what he does well, Teeth says that he can bite and chew things. He demonstrates by chomping up the desk.

Teeth (singular tooth) were a common anatomical structure found at the entry point to the digestive systems of numerous species throughout the galaxy.

Governor Wilek Nereus of Bakura was an avid collector of teeth, having collected them from numerous specimens, including Humans.[1]

Many non-sentient animals, such as vornskrs, had razor-sharp teeth,[2] and some sentients, such as Grand Moff Bertroff Hissa, had similar teeth.[3] Other species, particularly pachydermoids, featured large teeth known as tusks. The Eodons in particular were renowned for their tusks.[4]

They were often cleaned using a toothbrush[5] or an Ultrasound cleaner[6] as well as occasionally with a toothpick.[7]

Green spittle not always included.

Teeth are a part of Transformer anatomy sometimes found inside the mouth, surrounding the tongue. Though Transformer teeth seem similar in structure and appearance to the teeth of humans, what function they serve on Transformers can be a subject of debate.

Humans use teeth primarily for breaking down the foods they consume into digestible portions, but Transformers fuel is mostly, if not entirely, liquid. Human teeth are also used to help form certain sounds in their language, in conjunction with the tongue. Transformers are capable of human speech, and sometimes are shown to have both teeth and a tongue, so it's possible their teeth may be used for communication. Two functions of teeth definitely shared between humans and Transformers are using them as a weapon and baring them to indicate hostility.

Transformers who have animal-based alternate modes tend to have teeth in those adopted forms. Most of these alt modes were acquired after contact with other planets such as Earth, so the inclusion of teeth in Transformer anatomy is often irrelevant to understanding why some Transformers have them. However, eons of conflict have taught the Transformers to take advantage of whatever weapons one can find, and some have taken quite a liking to teeth.

Note: The only medium which avoided Transformer teeth entirely was the original cartoon, in which the inside of the mouth was depicted as a solid dark gray. In all other media, teeth were either uniformly used (such as in Beast Wars) or their appearance varied by artist (such as in Marvel Comics).
