Set in a fantastical living room with more doors than walls, The Upside Down Show stars The Umbilical Brothers as David and Shane, two brothers who live with their energetic puppet called Puppet, their invisible pet fly Fido, and The Schmuzzies, fluff balls that inhabit the nooks and crannies of their living room. Each episode begins as the brothers hand an imaginary remote control to the viewers at home so they can 'control' the duo's physical motion by fast forwarding, rewinding or pausing their movement. Breaking 'the fourth wall' of the television set, the brothers encourage their audience to participate in their antics and accompany them on their excursions.

Did You Know?


The 'crazy cat' sound effect (performed by Shane Dundas) is quite often heard in their performances as the Umbilical Brothers, particularly in Speedmouse where the 'crazy cat' was a frequent 'visitor' both to the stage show and in the actors' commentary. See more »

Oozing With Creativity!
16 November 2006 | by jill_r_davisSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this show. Thanks again Noggin for wonderful, refreshingly creative and hip programming. This is television that I don't mind watching over and over with my daughter. Shane and David are amazingly talented as they are turned upside down, put in slow motion, put in reverse and a multitude of other interactive situations by the viewer. They make me laugh even more than they make my daughter laugh! In each episode they introduce the viewer to a world of new experiences in the most off-beat and wacky manner. It gives children the OK to act silly and goofy and to be creative in pretend play. I find it inspiring as a parent. It's the best new show out there in my opinion. This program keeps my 2-year-old's attention the entire time it's on.
