The Upside Down Show
- 1 Season
The Upside Down Show is a show created for pre schooled children that airs on Nick Jr. The show is about two brothers who tell small stories throughout the show involving various puppets and the oddest of all, their hands. It makes for very interesting television being that this the only show of it's kind. there are some episodes that involve the children and have them get up to mimic exactly what they are doing or saying, which would seem to be a great idea being that children tend to pay more attention when they are actively participating. The reason the show is named The Upside Down show is because of certain segments where the screen turns entirely upside down and the brothers look as though they are hanging from the roof and the children think this is very humorous and try to look sideways to pay attention to what is going on. It's a very wacky scene. The sketches involving their hands is quite interesting. Their own fingers mimic legs of small people who walk around and talk to each other and get involved in various activities. They also use puppets who interact with the brothers. These puppets make several appearances on the shows on different days so that the children can see them often enough to remember their names. They speak in funny tones and interact with both brothers and even involve the children at times. Towards the end they do a small playback of all that was learned or gone over for the day and involve the children in that portion as well. The interaction is a very big part and the brothers sit on their couch and talk directly into the camera so that it seems as though they are talking directly to the kids. When it's on the children will be drawn to this program and being that it's a real show and not a cartoon, an adult may be interested as well.
