5 Reasons I love the Upside Down Show

I must admit, I love the Upside Down Show. It is probably one of the smartest shows ever put on TV for kids. Why you ask? Here are my reasons why the Upside Down Show rocks.

Adults can totally watch it and not feel like idiots.

The Umbilical Brothers a.k.a Shane and David are funny.
Kids see that you don't need a bunch of commercial toys to play. There is nothing marketable on the show.

My son saying "Come on knuckles" while he plays "action fingers" using his hands instead of a highly priced toy "name brand" toy.

The guys have opened up a whole new world of playing for my kids. They use their imagination to pretend to walk in slow motion, or be stuck to a wall, to rewind what they are saying, to hold imaginary flies, and play imaginary instruments.

I just found out that The Upside Down show only got one season so if you are like me and love this show, write to the following to voice your opinion.

I too was quite saddened to learn that the show was canceled after only one season, but there is good news on the horizon.

The Upside Down Show is being developed into a MOVIE by Blink Films. Can't wait to see what they do on the big screen.
