Up is Down (1969)

Up is Down is a cartoon by Millie Goldsholl that taught the important lesson of looking at things from a different POV. I am not sure how where I spotted this as a kid, but the colors, style and narration has stuck with me since I was a kid. The brainwashing part really kind of freaked me out. Even though I enjoyed it, even as a kid I took issue with the kid’s attitude. Why didn’t he just try and fix things to the way he wanted them to be instead of just adjusting his perspective?

I guess a question I would ask now is, what was standing upside down supposed to stand for??
