I was wondering due to in both episodes unhappiness is outlawed and if you are sad you will die, also that I wonder if "Smile" might be a sort of prequel to "The happiness patrol" is this possible as in is there any in canon reports to prove this or am I just making it up?


Smile features nanobots which had mistaken grief for a disease and were eliminating it.

The Happiness Patrol is set on a colony where sadness had been outlawed by a despotic ruler.

There's no connection beyond the basic concept of unhappy people die.
