The 73 Funniest Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids

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

Julia Barnes for Fatherly

Knock, knock. Who’s there? It’s the knock knock joke perhaps the best (and, perhaps most irritating) joke format for kids ever. For a child humor is a weapon to be wielded like a buzzsaw sawing a trumpet in half while someone is playing “Baby Shark.” In other words, children love the format because they love annoying repetition. But what makes the best knock-knock jokes for kids funny?

“I believe what makes knock-knock jokes fun is the fact that they are interactive,” Rob Elliot, author of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids, tells Fatherly. “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.”

When Fatherly asked Elliot for help in compiling a list of the best knock-knock jokes, he offered this sage wisdom. First, try to find jokes that are surprising. And second, dig for ones 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.”

With that in mind, here are 73 of the best knock-knock jokes for kids, including a few from Elliot’s book, plus several we’ve (annoyingly) added ourselves.
