The 87 Funniest Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids

Knock knock? Who's there? The best joke format for kids ever.

Julia Barnes for Fatherly

Knock-knock jokes, for kids and adults, are infamous for their repetitive and universally recognized format. They tend to crack kids up, but in terms of their ability to annoy parents, knock-knock jokes rank one step below baby drum sets and just above the baby shark song. They might be the corniest kids joke formats ever invented. And while the cheesy premises behind knock-knock jokes are known to bring kids joy, their corniness tends to bring adults…less joy. Because really, the main appeal of cheesy knock-knock jokes for kids is the annoying repetition.

Is there a way to make knock-knock jokes for kids funny, or even just bearable, for adults? “I believe what makes knock-knock jokes fun is the fact that they are interactive,” says Rob Elliot, author of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. “You have to respond to get to the punch line. This makes them fun for kids and their families ⏤ even if parents are not particularly fans of knock-knock jokes.”

To find the funniest (and cheesiest) knock-knock jokes for kids, Elliot suggests seeking out jokes that are surprising. Otherwise, look for jokes that “poke fun at knock-knock jokes or about hearing another knock-knock joke … because we all know after too many they drive us all a bit crazy.”
