Upside Town/Swingaround were children's television shows on the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) TV network. Upside Town (1968) was a
continuation of the 1967 series Barney Boomer, moving the focus from
John Clayton's title character to the other residents of Cedarville.
Swingaround (1967-1970) was a children's quiz show which originally
aired during the final 10 minutes of the Barney Boomer/Upside Town
timeslot. It was hosted by Lloyd Robertson in 1968, Trevor Evans in
1969, and Bill Paul until its end in 1970. The show's contestants were
Toronto-area students in the seventh grade. In 1968, Swingaround was
given its own half-hour slot, and a segment was added where children
from other parts of Canada could participate in the quiz via telephone.
