Disney’s “Shutterbug Time” Video Indoctrinates Children to Embrace Government Spying



Special Agent Oso is an animated series that airs on Disney Junior, a television network geared towards children from 3 to 10 years old. The series features a big yellow spy bear and his spy friends who help “educate” children about various things in a James Bond-like setting. While Special Agent Oso is said to teach children about exercise, nutrition and so forth, there are other, more insidious things being taught in this TV show.

Indeed, a music video entitled “Shutterbug Time” presents Shutterbug, a ladybug-shaped robotic camera “who keeps an eye out for children who need help”. The resulting video is pure creepy, as it depicts Shutterbug entering children’s rooms, taking pictures of them and sending back that data to a satellite in space. Here’s the video.

The lyrics of the song are quite disturbing, especially when read without the hypnotic music in the background.

She’s on the lookout, camera’s ready have no doubt
When there’s a problem, she’s right there, no need to shout
She’s always in flight, on the case both day and night
Sending the picture right up to the satellite

In short, this video is a clear case of children indoctrination which attempts to normalize high tech surveillance and government data collection to young minds. Notice that, when Shutterbug sends out a picture, Special Agent Oso sees, from his high-tech facility, exactly where it originates from.

Yeah, I thought that was creepy as hell myself. My kid loves the stupid show (he just got over Curious George and now is on an Oso trip, I preferred the monkey, it wasn’t a perfect show, but at least it didn’t have spy drones sneaking around spying on kids) The first time I saw that evil little drone I was like, Wtf!? Really? So I finally googled to see if others thought it was creepy as well. What the hell are they programming our kids for? It reminds me of when I was in elementary school in the 80’s in Los Angeles and we had a “freeze bell” that would ring after recess and lunch were over and we literally had to freeze in place on the playground on whatever act we were in the middle of. Like if you were running, you had to stop in place like… Read more »

I knew there was a reason I couldn't stand the show, other than how dumb Oso is in the show.

You really need proofs to see it? Isn't it too obvious? There are things that don't need scientifical or philosophical fundaments to be seen. And this article totally fits on it, because observation and mental associations are a very reliable process to understand what is happening.

ugh. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. As I've watched this show with them I've noticed the creepy surveillance normalizing…and I've talked to them about it. We don't have cable tv so they only get to see it at grandma's house and I regularly talk to them about how it's not ok and somewhat creepy. I've been disappointed to know that I'm not comfortable taking advantage of modern comforts like video baby monitors and home security systems…because I can't stand the idea of helping my kids feel comfortable always being watched by a camera. And honestly, i don't want it to be so easy to hack in and watch our family. Granted I have two iPhones, and iPad, and an iMac in my house. Numerous times I've considered using some kind of opaque tape to cover the cameras…but I haven't brought myself to accepting that… Read more »

I don't generally watch television, haven't owned one for 8 years now. I've been deep in the woods for the past two months. Just got back this week, and I saw the commercial for this show while the youngin in this house was watching Disney. I noticed the indoctrination immediately and made a point to bring awareness to the father. Ick…Disney

This just reminds me so much of George Orwells 1984! So creepy

The world we live in sadly is very corrupted…

The Kardashian sisters have just released their new kids clothing line and the promo brochures and ads feature just two main clothes – one kiddie wearing leopard animal print and the other wearing butterfly printed pants. those kid clothes look awful. America should ban that tv show.

When shutterbug focus's on something the circle that appears, if you join the four lines on the 10-2 and 8-4 0'clock. You would have the symbol for the "mark of the beast" bastards

This so creepy!

They have already developed cameras that are microscopic and look like bugs! So this terrfies me! When I have kids they will never watch Disney!

Readers of VC may also have noticed that the canned laugh tracks on Disney Channel shows aimed at all ages of children and pre-teens are entirely of adult voices, which subconsciously validates in the minds of young viewers the toilet humor, sexualization of children, and nasty repartee that characterizes all Disney productions these days. No conquering enemy armies could get away with such subversion of our children, while the enemy within, who own Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry, do so with abandon since they also control the mainstream media, which are still the determinative public forum in America.

Well put.

Santa Claus is everwhere

Any chance you are already indoctrinated?

where r you VC?

id like to point out that darpa / boston dynamics that are making most of these robots are primarily aimed directly for military applications while they are not quite at the weaponized phase their robots can jump run walk on ice and traverse extremely difficult obstical's wildcat – runs its about the size of a large dog mule/ big dog – can walk on ice its prototypes can jump it is now under army testing for practical use in rough terrain to carry large loads petman – is for all intents and purposes just like you see in the movie's a human robot built for warfare it is far from fully working yet as it is a two legged version but it can walk up stairs and slowly traverse very very difficult obsticales that arguably a human might not be able to -they have many more – far smaller then… Read more »

What you got against Capital Letters Willis? Is this your symbolic stand against The Capital!? if so i'm with you!
I think they are Banker Dictators and Tyrant Store Owners!

Has v.c. Died! Where's the posts!

Lets hope so. Might mean an end to his clinical level of paranoia and its effect on the loony Christians who eat up everything he writes.

What are you like. You wish people dead and also you call us loony bins. Hope dear VC is alive & kicking though. Maybe he/she's busy with another project.

Sounds like your brain has been chainganged if you know what I mean

Can you please write about this new craigslist killer and their satanic cult? And how many people who go missing every year can be related to that? Thanks. Keep up the good work

What made me sit up and think was this….The bald eagle is our national symbol. The Russians? Well, what a shocker…it's a BEAR..

LMBO – wow

And here is Disney with their sarcastic brainwashing of the children with another brand new topic for them to "embrace" as expected in the agenda.

Hey Disney! Leave those kids alone! (imagine Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall playing..)


Take it a step further, you know darpa crafting genetically engineered organisms like bugs that can be remote controlled like drones

Great review VC. Pls can write an article on Gravity fall. I was watching it somtime ago wit my kids and as appalled at the blatant use of symbols. I had to switch to another channel and warned my kids never to watch Gravity Fall again.

He has done an article on that show

Could this be related to DARPA's project where they've developed cockroaches complete with microchips and processors so that they can be controlled? They actually project images of walls into the cockroaches' minds so that they turn on command. They say they're developing this technology to "help" people who might be trapped in crumbled buildings, etc. so that they can be located (tiny cameras will be placed on the cockroaches as well). No this isn't fiction – it's on their own site! Look it up!

Yes Flying Bug Shaped Flying Bugs

That new Lego movie was the worst you've gotta see it and please report

i can't believe all my childhood the only channel i watch was disney channel i was hypnotized for this channel until i turn 16 years old and now i finish college last year and i feel free because nothing in the tv or music affect me now THIS IS THE REASON DISNEY F**K UP THE CHILDREN

dude! My nephew likes this cartoon. The first time I saw it like 3 weeks ago, I immediately knew it was indoctrination.
I wanted to do the report on it but I don't have the time nor the required things to put it together. Thank you, you made it easier for me!

Who's really surprised? Disney are dyed in the wool nazis and always have been.

Okay this whole illuminati thing is too far to be denied, I believe the illuminati exists but on the other hand the religions (christianity, islam or judaism) are too ridiculous to be believed. Is it possible that I have no religion but I believe in the illuminati? Because as far as I've been taught they are a bunch of people working with the devil, in that case when I accept illuminati existance, I would accept that religions we were taught were real. I'm perplexed. Forgive my ignorance please.

This comment just really stood out to me. I would say that the reason you beleive the illuminati exists is because you have seen too much evidence to be able to brush it off as make believe. You really don't have to do much studying to see it is real. Im not sure if your writing off other religions because you have studied them and then decided they were too ridiculous to believe or if you were just kind of taught that they were too ridiculous to be believed. I would say to you to look into the other religions, study them. If it is on your mind enough to cause you to be perplexed, I would say that it means something at lease. Read the Holy Bible, Quran, and the Torah. If you don't read them because you consider them fiction then do you not read any fiction books… Read more »

I am muslim culture, though I never considered myself muslim. I do read fiction books but I don't make up my life based on those books. The idea that the whole universe was explained in a book ages ago never sounded realistic to me. As I got older I had the chance to look into the religions. They all basicly say the same things. I can never believe myths like adam and eve or noah or anything. Looking into religions only made me sure that they aren't true.

Just keep on studying what you can prove; you will be able to reverse engineer new conclusions on many of the topics you developed an opinion on before enough information was available…. no need to make decisions early…. if you are up on The Illuminati and NWO, you are on a Truth slalom and there is no turning back…. you will discover all

Sounds like you're critically thinking, which is a really good thing. IMHO: I've come to the conclusion that people have spiritual experiences and even supernatural experiences. I think that religions are the social-political overgrowth of of a group of like minded people striving to perpetuate their spiritual practice through generations. What we've come to call the Illuminati, are a group of elite people using popular media to practice their rituals in order to gain more converts and more power on a realistic level. Hitler was an atheist yet practiced a ritual based 'religion'. My concern is the power of ritual.

Believing in a cult for extremely rich and insidious assholes doesn't mean you have to believe what they believe, and presuming to know precisely what they believe based on what one suspects they're presenting to society, a society they seek to exploit, is presumptuous, and arguably another mental trap. Dissent after all is easier to manage if a good portion of your dissenters are convinced the problem will solve itself through divine intervention at some unspecified time in the future. Whether or not the Illuminati exists in the form described on this site, and whether or not they actually believe in a power-granting Satan shouldn't change how you feel about what you suspect they're up too. If you think such an organization might exist, and you think what they're doing is wrong, then go with the old latin, 'falsum in uno, falsum in omnibus': False in one thing, false in… Read more »

That was the exact answer I was looking for, thank you.

But why on earth would it matter to you if faith has never touched your heart and you deny God, his prophets and the afterlife? Because you have not managed to get rich quick and amass material wealth like those other godless people have managed to do? I think it is very kind of others to point out your emerging critical thinking skills; from my point of view, you sound like a complete lightweight driving around a cul-de-sac.

You don't need to be a person of faith to be a person of conscience. You don't have to believe Jesus is going to save everyone to realize a lot of people are in serious jeopardy. You don't have to think that Satan himself is at the helm of a precisely organized assemblage of the planet's elite to be aware that callous and heartless individuals/organizations are actively conspiring too and assertively succeeding at the consolidation of world power and the sabotage of culture, education and rights for the vast majority. Whether you believe they're doing it for Beelzebub, for the power/wealth itself, or some combination of the two shouldn't be a cause for contention or confusion among those who take note and at least contemplate change/action. It shouldn't be a reason for us to trade insults and sour our agreement on the important worldly matters at hand with the same… Read more »

I have a question. Anyone can answer it. I'm not sure if it really ties into this post, but what do they actually do to Disney kids? I've heard of Disney mk programming or something like that. What do they actually do to them? I'm kind of new to this stuff so I'm lost on some things.

Nothin surprises me anymore…

To fight back against the evil stuff the mainstream networks put out for kids my husband and I started the Christ Clubhouse Channel last summer. It's a free Roku channel, and we just reached over 20,000 households, so are doing our part to give parents a good alternative. Do what you can, don't stop fighting evil, and remember that "the effectual, fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much"!

In the end of the video each ladybug went to a different color portal imitating a rainbow. Seeing that made me think of the government agency PRISM.

The free dictionary online says the acronym O.S.O. means: OSO: Orbiting Solar Observatory: OSO: Office of Satellite …

Good job find my post I have given you credit for the growing list of evidence that this cartoon is a demonic spell with OSO being the operative black magic term

Disney has always been a propaganda machine. We still have strength and ways to at least shine the light. Boycott Disney, all products, places, services, and let them know why. Boycott all sponsors of Disney and let them know why. Of course continue to make others aware, especially those we care about.

Aww! They make those spy drones look so cute and lovable!

Interestingly, the paragraph above sounds totally disjointed and I'm pretty sure that's not the way I typed it. At any rate, the segment is right around 17 to 20 seconds into the video. It definatley looks to me like an Illumined (all-seeing) eye in front of the building and then the bear is shown covering one eye immediately there-after showing who is really running the show.

Did you notice the area outside of the spy building in the beginning of the video is designed to look like the illumined (all-seeing eye) and then it video cuts to the bear ducking to avoid a flying spy-bug…causing him to quickly and subtly cover one eye?

Creepy and blatant, but not new. Children's programing has been pro-surveillance for decades. Remember the Carebears? That cuddly bunch of general do-gooders, seeking to raise up the cheer-levels of children everywhere? They did so by monitoring them, sometimes with heart-shaped telescopes/binoculars and sometimes through heart-shaped monitors, arriving in force from their weird pseudo-heaven when cheer-levels got a little too low. While on the subject, the Carebears also espoused racial segregation and prejudice as a necessity for a cohesive society. See the 'Carebear Cousins', Carebears who weren't really bears at all, and in their introductory episode moved in with the other Carebears, only to find, in a series of lighthearted blunders and hijinks, that they all just didn't belong together in the same community. Thus the Carebear-cousins go down to their own village, the Carebears all stay up in pseudo-heaven, and everyone's 'happy'. And lets not get started on what a… Read more »

Pathetic I pity you

Wow I got here 4 minutes after the most mundane intellectually deficient one-dimensional brainless zombie just passed through, leaving his meaningless mundane four word mark for everyone to admire

So annoying right!!?

If you see a shutterbug in your house, destroy it with no hesitation!!!!!! It's Shutterbug Clobbering Time!!!!!

This is just disgusting. What's the world gonna be like for our children?

Mean people don't bother me a lot but mean people who DISGUISE themselves as nice people bother me a whole lot!! Damn what a messy world we live in so blatant ):

Can you do an article on Animanicas? I used to love this show when I was little. I was watching it the other day w my daughter and there was an episode where they all went to a phychriatrst w Elmyra. She said "So doctor, are you going to look inside my head again?"

Tiny toon adventures…wackyland. Masonic pillars, eyes, pyramids, all kinds of creepy stuff. Gotta love Steven Spielberg.

shutterbugs are real life c**k roaches!

"the lego movie" is interesting too. i quote from imdb:

An ordinary LEGO minifigure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.

He lives his routine life by following "instruction manuals", until one day he is mistakenly identified as the Special — Master Builder, to be exact.

masterbuilder seems very similar to kabbalahs "great architect". oh, and theres a goodcop/badcop legoguy with a split personality. but hey, possible that im getting too paranoid and this is just a harmless kidsmovie. havent seen it.

Lego definitely has ties with Freemasonry. If you look at the Atlantis sets aimed at ages 6-12 (note numbers) on the bottom left hand corner of each box is the picture of the special key needed to operate the model – basically, shaped as a circle inside a triangle. The huge markup which does not seem to deter people from purchasing is also worrying. Many rivals produce identical, even compatible products as Lego even sold at $ stores but somehow, it's market share remains unchallenged in years. I think that the psychedelically bright colours suggest some kind of Bumblebee programming but I have not thought it through so I am just hazarding a guess. Walking into a Lego Store is only marginally less disconcerting than Timothy Leary. I couldn't say for sure, but lego is a cornerstone within their great plan. In Amanda Palmer's Map of Tasmania video (yes, I… Read more »

Btw, that video contains very powerful ritual and all the elements to pull off magick while it runs it's course. Notice her eyes once the requisite signs have been shown the necessary number of times. If you ever doubt there is no agenda this is the one to remind you. Neil Gaiman works a different kind of audience and a different part of the agenda although there is a huge overlap and they often perform together.

Who are you, are you a real Aspara?

I asked my would-be gandharva but he disagrees with those philosophies. Would settle for Jinn Princess though!

well done apsara. Have one of those atlantis sets. They gave them out in toysrus for free by using a newspaper coupon and basically it is some strange thing a cross between a shark and sth with a tail with a key like the one you have described, a circle with a triangle inside. You have to admit that produce great toys though.

Lucky you! Our Toysrus would never give out Lego, not even a single minifigure.

How about doing an article on Lego for the VC Community?

I would love to read an article on Lego too. I have to say that Lego is not all bad and as far as I know
not bad enough to warrant an entire article. Infact, is BIG in our household and we spend too much time building non-kit models for free at the Lego Store where the lovely, geeky, young staff are on first name terms with my kid and even gave him some free Lego to take home at Christmas.

LEGO = L' EGO, also has same letters as Google so very much about egocentric attitude.

@ The Austrian

The Master Builder is also mentioned in Thief videogames series (the original ones, not the newest Thief). I always somehow knew the name Master Builder is somehow connected to Masonry.

Tila Tequila is in the hospital "attempted sucicide" from eating to many pills BS

Yeah, and news just came out that Disney star Selena Gomez spent 2 weeks in rehab this year. They say its not for "substance abuse" but who knows… Being a child star doesn't end well for most.

Rehab is just another name for 're-programming'. The stars start questioning certain aspects of their life or what's going on around them, the suddenly they're in rehab with tubes and pills shoved into them to make them more amenable to the illuminati around them.
Look at Dr Drew Pinsky. He's one of the top illum dr's around and probably a chief 'programmer'. Everytime you hear about a star going to Dr Drew or rehab, just think of the hell they go through to be re-programmed.

A bunch of people have killed themselves after being on his show

Its always f.u.c.k.i.n.g. Disney isn't it. Siggggh.

What's bad is that young kids these days have no problem sharing everything anyway. Once they get older, the government and "powers that be" won't have to do much because they'll freely share all of their private information.This cartoon is definitely DEFINITELY making kids feel that it's normal and okay to be spied on.Typical Disney crap.

This vid is not only creepy but in it's correct context it is f*****g scary s**t.
Andy from the UK

I had Cable TV before but now I don't, I have three HD over the air channel, I'm happy with that, my kids too. They listen less to the tv and that's good like that.

I've watch this Disney program one time and that's a very dumb program, now I know why.
