Yo Gabba Gabba!

Fort the last several months, I'd heard lots of great stuff about the Nickelodeon kid's show "Yo Gabba Gabba!". Until recently, I didn't have a child that was old enough to pay attention to a television, so I never had reason to check it out. Then, all of my friends in their 20s and 30s started raving about this show...even the childless ones. So I did some research and discovered that the show is created by Christian Jacobs, a member of the Aquabats.
Jacobs and co-creator Scott Schultz have scored some well-loved names in contemporary music to be a part of their show. Regular contributers include Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo, and Biz Markee in a segment called "Biz's Beats". Recent musical guests include: Of Montreal, Mos Def, Weezer, Weird Al, The Killers, The Flaming Lips. It's every music lover's dream come true, in rainbow colors! If you've never checked it out because you thought it was just for kids, I highly recommend adding it to your DVR list.

"Singing and dancing to music is AWESOME!"


  1. Yep I was not a fan when I first saw it because ... well, I didn't have a kid. lol Now the music is so exciting and you're right about the bands. A couple of my faves have been on there too, like Shiny Toy Guns and MGMT... the videos are pretty neat too. Anyway, yeah pre-child DJ Lance creeped me out, now I like him.. wish I had his energy lol

  2. He still creeps me out a little. LOL
    Hey Krystle. My name is Erin, and I like to dance! Hehehe

  3. It's on Netflix. I have added some. I wish it was available to watch instantly!! I thank Luci for my introduction to this wonder. I think TMBG gave cool bands the green light to do kid stuff.

  4. I think you're right on that one :)
