I have some friends whose DVR is packed with episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba and they're not three years old.?Though I couldn't ever see myself managing to watch that many of them, it's a super cute kids show. Definitely geared to little ones, the songs have lyrics like “there's a nose on my face, a nose on my face, a nose on my face” and “there's a party in my tummy” the lessons are basic (Don't Throw Things at Friends, Some Things Are Big, Some Things Are Small, Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Lose, and Be Nice To Animals for example) but it's a uniquely interesting show geared towards kids. Everything from the graphics to the guest stars which include Elijah Wood, Biz Markie, Leslie Hall, and Mark Mothersbaugh is appealing to the hip, older crowd.
It's a very modern show that makes sense for a new generation of parents. I know I will be delighted when I have kids that Yo Gabba Gabba exists and hopefully it still will by then because I most other kids stuff is hard to stomach. I think there's a good chance it's here to stay for a while. Not only because kids and stoners love it, but thanks to the alliance with the great Kid Robot, it's making its money with the Newberry Comics set. Just ask The Nightmare Before Christmas how much that can keep you in the public eye.
