What Goes Down ... Must Come Up! A Funny Take on Nips and Tucks

Animator Walt Handelsman encourages pride in aging

"I thought there must be some funny way to show what people look like when they overdo plastic surgery — and we all know people who have!" says two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and animator Walt Handelsman.

In his song parody/animation of the Blood, Sweat & Tears classic "Spinning Wheel," Handelsman sends up those who go a little overboard in the Botox-and-browlift department, while gently reminding us that we all need to become a bit more comfortable with the effects of aging.

"Youth is really in your attitude," says Handelsman, "not in what you look like."
