Seemingly Innocent Cartoons


Jul 12, 2022
I wonder if the cartoon form appeals more to
children or adults. Clearly it's on FX and an adult
cartoon show, but it's obvious who this is really intended for.

Oh you've got to be joking. This is just horrendous. They surely are getting more and more cocky and arrogant, thinking they can spring this on children without people knowing!

Isn’t that disrespectful to the author? I mean, think about it… say you made a series and once you passed away they made it into something else entirely?
that makes me sick… why do they ruin these classics? I loved it as a kid, not now but they ruin these shows and make them adult

Probably the network is targetting towards teenagers. The designs look dull like most adult cartoons today.

I thought the eyeball on the right was a Minion.
Agreed about that dull cartoon look. Its like the dull/drab aesthetics of old MTV cartoons like "Daria" but with cleaned up animation and more vivid colors when they chose to employ them. Kind of the way Simpsons animation has "evolved"...

The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube

leadmushroom3 1 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube

KrainaGrzybowTV (English translation: Mushroomland) is a bizarre YouTube channel that has become a viral sensation in its native Poland and across the world. This is the disturbing story behind it.
Warning: This article deals with disturbing subject matters.
I remember when I first randomly came across an episode of KrainaGrzybowTV. After about 45 seconds into it, I yelled out “NOPE”, closed my browser, and almost threw my computer out of the window. A few months later, a VC reader sent me a summary of the series and its disturbing symbolism. So I sat down and watch the entire thing. The experience left me feeling nauseated and thoroughly creeped out.
Each episode of Mushroomland is styled to look like an 80’s children’s TV show from Eastern Europe. The host of the show is Agatha, a young girl that has paper eyes over her actual eyes. Each episode begins with an “educational” theme (i.e. “How to Apple”), which then turns into a bizarre, confusing, and terrifying ordeal. Throughout the episodes, we learn that Agatha has actually been abducted by strange men and sent to a mysterious place called Mushroomland.
Rainbowland episodes were published on YouTube between 2013 and 2017, with each episode describing a different aspect of Agatha’s ordeal. The channel quickly became a viral sensation and garnered over 3 million views, a cult following … and some controversy.
“Throughout the second half of 2014 Krzysztof Osiejuk, a right-wing publicist, claimed in a series of articles that KrainaGrzybowTV is the “most profound incarnation of pure satanism” he had ever encountered.
In December 2014, after a tragedy in Rakowice (Poland), where a young poet and her boyfriend murdered said boyfriend’s parents, Osiejuk pointed out that the girl (as analysis of her Facebook profile showed) was a KGTV fan, which led him to believe her actions might have been influenced by the YouTube channel.
– Know Your Meme, KrainaGrzybowTV
Various theories have attempted to decode the meaning behind these bizarre videos. In some episodes, people saw references to an atomic war.
The rise of the “Atomic theory” happened to coincide with the Ukrainian Revolution and several other Eastern European political issues (like Putin’s ban on polish apples), which became the fuel for conspiracies enthusiasts who saw KGTV’s videos as a deliberately coded warning for a planned atomic war. This theory was also inspired by KGTV’s own (often cryptic and nonsensical) responses to some of the comments on their fanpage, which sometimes contained geographic coordinates and radio frequencies. Some users have as gone as far as sending baits to KGTV, as well as people suspected to be the authors (for example Marcus Molibdenus, see below), in order to get their IP addresses and pinpoint their location. The results were inconclusive however, as various attempts produced different outcomes pointing the location to several Ukrainian, Polish and Italian cities.
– Ibid.
Other theories claim that Rainbowland is about Agatha taking hallucinogenic drugs (i.e. mushrooms) or being possessed by a demon. Others believe that the entire thing has no meaning, that it is pure nonsense and that it is just a viral marketing campaign to sell products (the soundtrack and related merchandise).
While all of these theories are probably partially true, there is much more going on in Rainbowland videos. Each episode is packed with seemingly random images that actually make sense when one understands their underlying concept: Trauma-based mind control.
Also known as Monarch Programming, the aim of trauma-based mind control is to expose victims to trauma so intense (through abuse, drugs, torture, etc.) that it causes them to dissociate from reality. While in this vulnerable state, handlers program new alter personas into the minds of their victims that can be triggered at will (for more information on Monarch Programming, read the full article here). This is exactly what happens to Agatha in Rainbowland.
Episode 1: How to Apple
In the first episode, we are introduced to the TV show “Smile Guide”, hosted by Agatha.
Agatha greets her viewers by oddly waving her hand. We immediately notice the paper eyes covering her actual eyes.
The fact that Agatha has her eyes covered by fake eyes is the first of many symbols directly alluding to MK programming. Indeed, as seen in previous articles on this site, this symbol represents the fact that mind-controlled slaves are blinded to reality. It is their handlers that dictate what the slaves perceive to be “reality”.
Then, we are introduced to Maggie – a cartoon squirrel who acts as a co-host. Although the squirrel seems to be “friendly”, a quick shot reveals its true nature.
mushroom2 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
The word TEUFEL appears under Maggie. Teufel is a German word that means: “a devil, satan, i.e. a creature of hell, a demon”.
Demonology is an intricate part of Monarch programming. Handlers often assign “demons” to their slaves in order to further their trauma and reinforce programming. In later episodes, we actually see how Maggie is an agent of trauma.
“Demonology is the key to what the programmers accomplish. While there may be exceptions to the rule, within the Illuminati, demonology is not taken lightly, but is considered to be the real science of the Sciences of Mind Control. Most of what the Programmers do is actually spiritually based and connects to their understanding of demonology. Father (“Papa” the programmer), son (child) and unholy spirit (demons) work together.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave
In the first episode, Agatha shows kids “How to Apple”. The name of each episode is phrased in an odd matter as a key word is often omitted. This reflects the confusing, nonsensical environment in which MK slaves are forced to live in.
Agatha drills a hole inside an apple using a knife.
Meanwhile, various symbolic images flash onscreen, including this one.
mushroom5 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
A diagram of female genitalia.
As we see Agatha feverishly going back and forth inside the apple with a knife, we understand that she is actually “reenacting” her own sexual abuse.
This first episode also introduces Agatha’s mother. Throughout the episodes, her mother tells her story under the cover of anonymity. Everything she says points directly to mind control.
In the first episode, the mother states that a man came to her house at midnight to take her daughter to Mushroomland, adding that “it is easy to find Mushroomland, but it’s the return that might prove a bit more difficult”.
Episode 2: How To Make From Paper
The episode begins with Agatha “glitching” and stuttering when trying to say”papieru” (Polish for paper).
mushroom6 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Agatha glitches…
Then this demonic thing scares the crap out of you.
The glitch might be a result of the trauma she suffered in the first episode. Throughout the series, we see a red, evil looking Agatha at random moments. MK slaves are often programmed using dualistic good/evil patterns.
Later, Agatha loses patience and tells Maggie the squirrel to “get lost, retard”. This was not a good idea.
mushroom8 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Maggie suddenly turns into a 3D thing that is creepy and menacing.
The “demonic” side of Maggie surfaces and does not shy away from punishing Agatha. Maggie then “makes thing better” in the creepiest way possible.
mushroom9 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Maggie tells Agatha “But I love you anyways” and kisses her. That’s after she’s been abused.
The rest of the episode is a bizarre, confusing ordeal which appears to compare Agatha’s mother to a cow. Is she being programmed to hate her mother?
Episode 4: How to Hair
The 4th episode (there is no 3rd episode) focuses on hair … in the creepiest way possible. If you’ve read previous articles on this site, you know that MK slaves often develop a bizarre, unhealthy obsession with their hair. It is not rare that, during breakdowns, they shave off their hair. The most glaring case is the 2007 Britney Spears meltdown.
In 2007, Britney Spears – one of the most obvious victims of MK programming – shaved off her hair during her highly publicized meltdown. She then attacked an SUV with an umbrella.
The episode “How to Hair” appears to detail the psychopathic process that causes MK slaves to obsess over their hair and to develop an urge to get rid of it.
mushroom10 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
At the start of the episode, Maggie is in a white disguise and walks on Agatha’s scalp. It buries a mysterious box next to some hair.
Then, all kinds of crazy stuff happens.
mushroom11 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
First, we see footage of a girl brushing her hair.
mushroom12 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Then, the word “Suffering” appears on screen. Some crazy association going on there.
Meanwhile, Agatha is still hosting a kid’s show. In a segment dedicated to reading viewer mail, Agatha receives various absurd and disturbing letters.
mushroom13 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Maggie (aka the demon) sent a letter saying that it’s forever in Agatha’s hair. Are you starting to understand why MK slaves obsess over their hair?
Then Agatha’s handler makes his first appearance: Jeans Man.
Jeans Man yells at Agatha and forces her to eat a bowl of … hair. This is yet another trauma-inducing torture forced on Agatha.
Then, in a hypnotic scene, the programming takes place.
mushroom16 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Agatha’s hair disappears and her eyes become white.
Meanwhile, “forget the hair” flashes on screen.
This episode appears to provide “insider” insight into how MK slaves are programmed, through psychological brainwashing and physical trauma, to hate their own hair. Like Britney Spears during her meltdown.
Later in the episode, Agatha’s mother says that neither the police, the principal, or the priest would help her find her daughter. She also receives bizarre calls from her daughter.
“And she speaks to me: “Mom don’t worry about me. I’m fine in the Mushroomland.” But it wasn’t Agatha. I wouldn’t recognize my own child?”
Episode 5: How Properly Telephone
This episode begins with Agatha passed out. A ghostly and hairless thing emerges from her and starts talking.
The dissociative state of an MK slave. Then Agatha is poked with a stick.
Agatha then wakes up and teaches kids “how to properly telephone”. However, when the phone rings, things get very MK ULTRA.
When the phone rings, Agatha starts convulsing as if she was being electroshocked (a classic trauma-inducing technique of MK programming).
Throughout this episode, various puzzle pieces flash on screen. Once pieced together, the puzzle reveals a bizarre picture of an unknown place. What is that about?
After the electroshock, Agatha falls down under the table and a new Agatha, who has a radically different personality, sits at her place.
The new Agatha wears red lipstick and has a flirty disposition. Here, she blows kisses at the viewers.
This appears to be a reference to Beta Kitten programming – a sex slave alter.
Then, Maggie the demon squirrel takes Agatha to the doctor who says this:
A doctor tells Agatha: “You’re almost fully reflowered”.
To deflower means “To deprive a woman of her virginity”. Therefore, the scene alludes to Agatha being deflowered by her handler. For this reason, Agatha replies:
mushroom22 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTubeThen things get even worse. Maggie tells Agatha:
“Quickly, you must miss a finger”.
A finger gets cut off for no reason. More trauma.
The rest of the episode is a chaotic and confusing mishmash of sounds and images, where Agatha is often seen screaming in pain and walking around in a computer-generated virtual world – a reference to dissociation.
mushroom24 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
The episode ends with a shot of a creepy dark place. Is this where the MK programming actually takes place?
Episode 6: How Your Child
In the final episode, Agatha says that she has a child, but she’s holding a doll. Was Agatha actually pregnant from the abuse? Does Agatha believe that the doll is an actual child?
mushroom25 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Agatha tells the doll to behave and asks it if “she wants to be like little Justine”.
From what when can piece together from previous episodes, Justine is a slave who did not “behave” and now she’s dead. A programming project that went wrong?
mushroom27 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
In classic MK confusion/reversal, the roles change.
Then the demon squirrel slaps Agatha in the face.
mushroom28 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
He’s not her friend.
After a hypnotic scene, influenced by Japanese cartoon TV shows from the 80s, Maggie announces to Agatha that she has found a “real Mushroomlight” and that she can now open her eyes. Will she finally be free?
mushroom29 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
When Agatha attempts to open her actual eyes, things get horrific. Her eyes are all white as if she has no soul anymore. The mind control has destroyed her core persona, she is just a shell of herself.
We then see Agatha (with her paper eyes back on) and Maggie sitting outside and joking.
Agatha laughs at a joke (that referred to the first episode) for way too long. The laughing progressively turns into crying.
At the end, we see Agatha sitting alone in what looks like an internment cell.
This final scene says it all. Everything that happened in the previous episodes was happening in her head … while she was in the cell. Because she’s an MK slave.
“ending of the show 09/21/1994”
This additional episode features Agatha reading a disturbing letter she wrote to her mother.
“You’ve put branches in my stomach, so I could never feel hunger
You’ve sealed my ears shut with warm wax, so I wouldn’t hear the blasphemies
My eyes, oh Mother, you’ve taken with a spoon, so I could never see atrocities”
Agatha’s mother says that she received this final letter from Mushroomland. A final, cruel taunt from extremely evil people.
What the Hell Did I Just Watch?
The least one can say is that the creator behind Mushroomland, Wiktor Stribog, has some intimate knowledge about trauma-based mind control. Other videos on his channel allude to the same concept. The video PIWNICA/CELLAR is a horrifying tale of a child traumatized by his father, combined with extremely symbolic paintings referring to mind control, satanism, and child abuse.

Stribog’s YouTube profile pic features a one-eye sign.
Mushroomland appears to have spawned other Polish YouTube channels with equally bizarre content. One of the most mind-boggling ones is Magiczny Świat Ani/The Magic World of Ania. Although the channel is still active, the episodes that have been published tell the story of the mysterious abduction of a young girl named Ania. Each episode is replete with MK symbolism and allusions to Satanic Ritual Abuse – combined with all sorts of codes, ciphers and hidden links to various social media accounts. While the channel appears to feature some ARG elements (Alternate Reality Game), some believe that it actually refers to real life abductions and murders.
mushroom32 The Disturbing Meaning of KrainaGrzybowTV (Mushroomland) : The Creepiest Channel on YouTube
Nearly everything about The Magic World of Ania points directly to satanic ritual abuse.
In Conclusion
Mushroomland cannot be fully explained without considering trauma-based mind control and one its key components: satanic ritual abuse. Dozens of other screenshots could have been added to explain how deeply this YouTube channel goes into this disturbing topic.
Mushroomland is part of a new wave of online entertainment that blurs the line between fiction and reality. While it addresses the topic of mind control, the hypnotic, distorted and nauseating sounds and images found in each episode causes viewers to personally experience some of its horrors. The scariest thing about Mushroomland is that those who celebrate the videos as “great art” have no idea what they are truly about.

The Sinister Meaning of “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”

leadhug The Sinister Meaning of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

“Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is a web series of six enigmatic videos that has grown into a “cult phenomenon”. Behind the weirdness, however, is a deeper message: It is about mass media brainwashing and MKULTRA.
Over the last few years, I’ve received quite a few e-mails regarding Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, a web series involving puppets and a whole lot of creepiness. VC readers astutely identified symbols and messages in the videos that pointed towards a deeper and more disturbing meaning. Now that the final video has been published and the story is complete, I can wholeheartedly agree with these readers: Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is not merely about random creepiness. It conceals a message about the effects of mass media on the world, how it shapes and molds people’s opinions, and how it preys deliberately on young, impressionable minds. Even more disturbing, it also depicts the manipulation of agents working in the media using actual MKULTRA brainwashing techniques until they are completely broken down. Pretty heavy stuff for a show about puppets.
The videos were created by British artists Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling in 2011. Each episode is made to appear like a typical children’s television program, consisting of singing and talking puppets similar to those of Sesame Street, but eventually, the story takes a dark turn, usually involving gore. The first episode was reportedly created with little to no budget. After the video gained popularity, a second video was commissioned by Channel 4, a British television station (note that this station also sponsored Viktoria Modesta’s “Prototype”, a music video that is full of MK symbolism – read my article about it here). The series then took off, with each episode going deeper into the depths of Monarch Programming (if you don’t know what that is, please read this article first). More than simply satirizing children’s shows, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared paints a bleak picture of mass media and society as a whole. Let’s look at the episodes.
Episode 1
The first episode begins with the three protagonists of the show, Red Guy, Yellow Guy, and Duck Guy, sitting around a kitchen table. A few items shown in this scene will reappear throughout the series, notably the date of June 19th and the checkerboard pattern.
It’s about to get creepy.
Then Sketchbook comes to life and explains to the friends how to “be creative”.
The notepad teaches the puppets how to watch clouds creatively.
The notepad flashes the one-eye sign while teaching the puppets how to watch clouds creatively.
However, we quickly realize that there are strong contradictions in Sketchbook’s message.
When Yellow Guy paints a picture of a clown, the notepad tells him Hold down friend you might need to slow it downand black paint starts dripping down the painting.
When Yellow Guy paints a picture of a clown, Sketchbook tells him “Hold down friend you might need to slow it down”. Then black paint slowly starts drips down the painting.
When Yellow Guy writes that green is his favorite color, Sketchbook denies his answer stating that Green is not a creative color.
When asked for his favorite color, Yellow Guy writes green. Sketchbook denies his answer stating that “Green is not a creative color”.
When Sketchbook says: “Listen to your heart, listen to the rain, listen to the voices inside your brain”, things start to get dark.
First, we see the camera showing the “behind the scenes” of the TV show, letting us know that the puppets are actually actors in a children’s TV show.
Then, when the puppets get creative, they do a bunch of disturbing things and completely freak out, as if possessed by something evil.
Then the puppets “get creative”, which means that they do a bunch of disturbing things and completely freak out.
This first episode, therefore, sets the stage for the rest of the series. It depicts three puppets being used somewhat unwillingly in a TV show that teaches unhealthy messages to children.
Episode 2
The second video is called TIME and features Tony the Talking Clock who teaches about the unstopping nature of time … and that everybody will be subjected to inevitable death and decay.
Tony the Talking Clock teaching about time. It is still June 19th.
Although Tony the Talking Clock sings about time continually advancing forward, time is apparently still in the world of the puppets. Throughout the series, it is clear that it is always the same day.
The clock points to a picture of the three friends. It is dated 19-06-55 (June 19, 1955), the “today” in each video.
The clock then takes the friends on a psychedelic journey through time from the past to the future.
Red Guy and Duck Guy are then seen with their brains connected to a giant computer topped by a giant eyeball. We are starting to understand that the puppets are under litteral mind control.
Red Guy and Duck Guy are then seen with their brains connected to a giant computer topped by a giant eyeball. We are starting to understand that the puppets are under literal mind control. The pictures on the wall and the calendar imply that nothing is real in their minds.
It is during this episode that we first see Roy, Yellow Guy’s father. Every time we see him, an eerie music play in the background.
Yellow Guy's father is the MK handler behind it all ... and Yellow Guy will turnout to be the programmed slave.
Yellow Guy’s father is the MK handler behind it all … and Yellow Guy will turn out to be the programmed slave.
In each episode, a “friendly” character pops out of nowhere to sing an educational song. But it always ends up showing its true face: Evil, sadistic and manipulative. In short, they are sent by the handler to program the puppets, who are then used to program TV viewers. Through hypnotic and subversive songs, the singing “friends” lure the puppets into a dissociative state where trauma awaits them.
The clock gets extremely angry when Duck Guy proposes an alternative definition of time. It also creepily watches on as time fast forwards and the puppets experiment decay in real time.
The clock gets extremely angry when Duck Guy proposes an alternative definition of time. It also creepily watches on as time fast forwards and the puppets experience their own decay in real time.
The puppets witness how their body will decay with time. In the world of MK, they are being subjected to trauma.
We then realize that this entire ordeal was all part of the friends’ TV show.
Tony the Talking Clock is on TV. As with MK programming, it is becoming difficult to distinguish between reality and fiction.
In the two short videos HELP and HELP #2, the puppets are held captive by assailants requesting money. Although this was primarily a way to promote the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared Kickstarter campaign, the videos continued to reinforce the concept of the puppets as victims of trauma.
Red Guy forced to read a memo under threat of being hit on the head with a hammer by some monster. The date is still June 19th 1955.
Red Guy is forced to read a memo under threat of being hit on the head with a hammer by an ISIS-ish monster. The date is still June 19, 1955.
Episode 3
The third installment of the series revolves around the concept of love and gets deeper into the concept of mind control.
The video begins with a “Still Missing” sign featuring the three characters. They’ve been missing since June 19th … which is today.
As MK slaves, the puppets are literally “missing” from reality, where time stands still (despite what Tony the Talking Clock was singing about).
Although they are “missing”, the three friends are enjoying a picnic outside.
The puppets are sitting, once again, on a dualistic checkerboard pattern surface. In occult symbolism, the checkerboard pattern is the ritualistic surface on which profound transformation occurs. In mind control, these occult properties are used during programming.
Several paintings by Kim Noble (a survivor of MKULTRA) prominently feature dualistic patterns. It is an integral part of mind control programming.
Then Yellow Guy sees something symbolic that indicates the beginning of programming.
A butterfly flies around Yellow Guy, who is fascinated by it.
As stated in multiple articles on this site, media that uses Monarch programming symbolism often indicates the beginning of a programming sequence with a butterfly that lures the slave into an alternate reality (such as in Pink’s Just Like Fire music video). In this case, the butterfly leads Yellow Guy to complete dissociation.
Yellow Guy goes literally over the rainbow (which means dissociation in MKULTRA terms).
Yellow Guy literally goes “over the rainbow” (code for dissociation in Monarch mind control). The butterfly actually says “come on, just over the rainbow”.
In each video, the handler’s programming is represented by a cute character who leads the puppet to trauma. In the above image, Yellow Guy is literally in the clouds with strange characters and even a mushroom, which might imply that he is being drugged.
As usual, things turn dark and disturbing very quickly. Yellow Guy (who is not the sharpest tool in the shed) is tricked into believing that nobody will ever love him … unless he does what the butterfly says.
“This is your chance to start anew. And all we’re asking you to do is to is change your name, and clean your brain and forget about anything you ever knew.”
He's being literally brainwashed.
His brain is literally being washed.
Behind Yellow Guy are Red Guy, Sktechbook, Tony the Talking Clock and, more importantly, his own dad, the handler behind it all.
Behind Yellow Guy are Red Guy, Sketchbook, Tony the Talking Clock and, more importantly, his own dad, the handler behind it all. They are all witnessing his programming.
Yellow Guy is also asked to worship Malcolm, the “King of Love” … and to feed him gravel.
Like the rest of the series, this episode comments on how media forces specific ideas upon the viewers. The same way Yellow Guy is asked to worship Malcolm and to feed him gravel in order to find love, the masses are asked to worship stupid things and spend money to feel happy and loved. On a deeper level, the episode also depicts the actual mind control programming of Yellow Guy, the star of the TV show for kids.
Episode 4
Episode 4 begins with the three friends playing a board game. Once again, there are several subtle details that confirm the presence of programming.
The friends are apparently inside Yellow Guy’s home – there is a picture of him and his father Roy (the handler) on the. Underneath the table, there’s a rug with an all-seeing eye in the center and four square “eyes” in each corner.
The same square “eyes” are found on their board game, combined with the all-important checkerboard pattern. They are still being programmed.
Behind Yellow Guy is the head of Malcolm the Love King illustrating that he has integrated this portion of his programming. Also, according to the milk carton, the three friends are still missing – even though they’re inside Yellow Guy’s house.
When a card from their game asks “What’s the biggest thing in the world”, the friends look at the globe. Studying the globe is indeed a great and wholesome way to learn about the real world. However, a slightly dumb computer interrupts their research.
The computerly guy keeps making grammatical errors.
The computer calls himself a “computerly guy” and keeps making grammatical errors.
Once again, we find here a comment about mass media. This TV show aimed at kids misleads them out of true information (learning from the globe) and lures them into learning pointless, big-brother-friendly information.
The computer starts asking all kinds of personal questions to the friends. This children’s TV show is attempting to normalize mass surveillance by presenting it to the viewers as something innocent and harmless.
When Red Guy tells the computer to “shut up” and taps on it, the friends are transported to the “digital world”. In MK terms, they are taken to dissociation. Once again, this symbolically represents them being programmed by their handlers.
In the digital world, the friends follow a checkerboard pattern floor, implying they are following the programming script as laid out by the handler. A bunch of googly eyes and a pyramid appear in the background: basic occult elite imagery.
The show is not about teaching children about computers anymore: It is a confusing ordeal where the computer acts as an agent of the MK handler.
The computer symbolically represents what MK handlers do to their slaves: Removing them from their core persona through trauma and dissociation.
When looking into a mirror, Yellow Guy does not see himself, but a digital, “programmed” version of himself: his alter-persona.
As they get deeper into the digital world, the puppets find themselves inside a hypnotic whirlwind of sounds and images. Red Guy, the most critical guy in the group, gets sick of it and attempts to break out from programming.
Red Guy finds himself in the “real world” (or a somewhat distorted version of it). He’s an actor in a children’s TV show that uses motion capture.
Red Guy is not supposed to be aware of this reality. And his head literally explodes. MK slaves cannot break from programming and, if they do, they are often programmed to “auto-destroy”.
Episode 5
Duck Guy and Yellow Guy are sitting in a kitchen and feel like something is “missing”.
Duck Guy and Yellow Guy are too programmed to fully realize that Red Guy is gone. Notice Computer Guy on the fridge.
While looking around, the friends look at a picture on the fridge two separate times. The image is slightly different the second time around.
Upon second look, Red Guy is now outside the house and Duck Guy has X's on his eyes - which foretells something awful to come.
Upon second look, Red Guy is now outside the house, in the crosshairs of the window, and Duck Guy has Xs on his eyes. The image foretells something awful to come.
In this episode, food starts singing about healthy eating. As usual, they give terrible advice. During the song, a phone call interrupts everything.
The red phone represents the link between the fake world of mass media and the grim reality of MKULTRA.
When he picks up the phone, Duck Guy finds himself in a creepy lab. Real time video of him holding the phone show the contrast between the fakery of media and the reality of mind control.
When he picks up the phone, Duck Guy finds himself in a dark surgical room. Judging by the monitor, he is in two places at once.
Meanwhile, a giant lamb chop sings about healthy eating. The song is confusing and full of contradictions, reminiscent of the mind games used by MK handlers to confuse and hypnotize MK slaves. Duck Guy cannot take this anymore and attempts to run away. He cannot go far.
In a rather gruesome scene, Duck Guy’s innards are dug out of him.
We then see Yellow Guy eating cans full of Duck Guy. He’s eating his friend!
It is at this point that we understand that Yellow Guy is the main focus of the MK programming. The other two were expendable – and probably not fully programmable. In this episode, Yellow Guy was exposed to extreme trauma: He was forced to lose his friend … and then eat him. He is being completely broken down so he can be reprogrammed.
Episode 6
In the sixth and final episode, things reach a disturbing conclusion.
Yellow Guy in his bedroom, crying because his friends are gone. It is still June 19th.
At this point, we realize that the entire series basically took place in a single day. The first episode was during breakfast, then each episode progressed through the day until bedtime. But why did everything take place on June 19, 1955, specifically? Is there something significant about that particular day?
First, June 19, 1955, was Father’s Day, which gives things a sad tenor considering that the handler in the story is the boy’s father. Second, the year 1955 was during the post-war period, an expansive time for MKULTRA experimentation, as well as subliminal TV programming. In the present day, both of these fields have reached a very sophisticated and almost imperceptible level. (Fun fact: The final episode was released on June 19, 2016).
When Yellow Guy is finally ready to go to sleep, the lamp beside him comes to life and sings about dreams. Yellow Guy screams in horror because he knows that the song will inevitably turn into trauma. And he is right: He is back into his dissociative state.
Back in dissociation (represented by a cartoon world), we see Yellow Guy's mind being a show. Who's in attendance? His father, the handler, controlling the show.

While following the ever-presented checkerboard road, Yellow Guy sees a butterfly (Monarch programming), a mushroom (drugs), the mind control machine topped by a giant eye and, of course, his dad, the handler.

Yellow Guy's dream turns into a real nightmare as he drowns in black liquid (similar to what was poured on his painting in the first episode).
Yellow Guy’s “dream” turns into a nightmare as he drowns in black liquid (similar to what was poured on his painting in the first episode). Simulated drowning is a classic torture method in MK programming.
Meanwhile, Red Guy is apparently trying to live a normal life in the “real world”.
Red Guy holds a boring job in a bland world where everybody looks like him.
After work, Red Guy goes out and everybody looks the same. Are the makers of the series saying that the real world is populated by a bunch of conformist clones?
Red Guy gets on stage to perform for the crowd.
He sings the song about creativity heard in the first episode. He even replicates the parts sung by his friends. (RIP Duck Guy).
This scene is rather sad. It is basically an MK slave trying to express himself. However, all he knows is what he was programmed to know. So his “creative outlet” is to sing something he was forced to learn. Ironically enough, that song was about “creativity”.
Everybody in the crowd hates the song … except for maybe one person.
Roy the handler is in the crowd.
Roy has apparently found Red Guy to bring him back to his programming. MK slaves cannot be left loose in the real world for long.
Red Guy finds himself back in MK ULTRA world. Was he ever in the real world? Was it all a dream? Reality and fiction is extremely blurry for MK slaves.
Red Guy finds himself back in MKULTRA world. Was he ever in the “real world”? Was it all a dream? Reality and fiction is extremely blurry for MK slaves.
Red Guy finds the console that unleashes the singing things that are used to program the friends. Notice that there’s a video reel and a musical keyboard, hinting that music and video are used to control MK slaves and, on a wider scale, the masses.
Roy the handler appears and attempts to reach Red Guy with an extremely long arm (the world of MK is very far reaching).
Red Guy unplugs the machine. Did he unplug himself from mind control? Did the masses unplug themselves from media control?
We then see the three friends sitting on a table, looking slightly different.

A page falls from the calendar. It is finally June 20th.
It’s a brand new day. Are these our friends? Are they free now? Not sure.
Sketchbook comes to life again, signing its song. Programming continues on the every present checkerboard pattern.
It’s the same story on a different day. For the kids watching the TV show, it is just another day of TV programming.
In Conclusion
Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a strange and disturbing adventure that has lent itself to all kinds of theories and interpretations. However, it is difficult to miss the series’ scathing commentary on mass media that targets young children and brainwashes them into conforming to the elite’s will.
Through symbolism, the series also comments on the most direct and brutal form of brainwashing: Monarch mind control, also known as MKULTRA. Indeed, the series puts on display the entire world of MKULTRA, from its distinctive symbolism to the horrific techniques used to cause trauma and dissociation. We are shown these techniques being used on actors, hinting that the people we know and love in our mass media might also be brainwashed MK slaves.
So is Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared a warning against the evils of mind control or does it simply propagate more of elite’s sick culture to the masses? The answer depends on whether or not you’ve pulled the plug from the machine.
