TIME's Top 10 New TV Series



#8. Yo Gabba Gabba!
Nickelodeon

The most delightfully bizarre kids' show since Pee-Wee's Playhouse is a marriage of club music, edgy animation and surreal imagery that will convince you someone slipped something into your Fruity Pebbles. Like a rave party for kids, with art segments by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh and music from bands like The Shins, it's gorgeous-looking silly fun, for adults too. In the words of one of its highly contagious songs, this is a show with a party in its tummy.

I just found the show a few weeks ago and we LOVE it!!! I wish there were more products out there for the characters.

Lovin' the show.

Some feedback...
1. Season 2 songs aren't as up tempo and catchy as season 1...i finally figured out what seperated 'Its Time To Dance', 'Dancings Easy (frog skit)', 'Freeze', 'the yo gabba theme song', 'Party in My Tummy', 'Beaty Beat Clap Clap', 'Banana from the aquabats', 'Animals are you friends', and other songs from the other songs in season 1....they just arent up tempo as the songs (even Im so Sorry and snacky snack are even catchy). I think you need to bring back that kiddie pop/rock/hip-hop feel to the backdrop of the songs again

2. Its time to start meshing up content. Its ok to start with party in my tummy on a show here and there

3. I do like the consistency of funny faces and cool tricks and dancy dance (definitely like the celeb cameos there). Start meshing up those as well into some shows (look how viral the Elijah Woods piece has proven...we can't get enough of the puppet master here in my house lol)

GREAT SHOW!!!! HOPE THIS CONSUMER FEEDBACK HELPS.

and PS: I want to see more DO IT cameos too!! lol

Congrats on the accolades. I was ready to hate on this show as being a silly representation of black men, but I think it is really fun. My kids dance from the first "Yo!" Let me know when you need additional dancers.

SRH said...

Congrats on the top 10 nod!

Giana Lee said...

Gia & Maia - I,too, have a couple of dancers if there is any need for extras ....and I've been catching myself singing the songs throughout the day myself :) ...just as long as my girls are happy with this show, I am happy too!! We all would be very very happy if there were products available in stores or even online for the public/viewers. Hopefully someday soon. Gia & Maia's Mom

DJ LANCE ROCKS THE HOUSE! Our whole family loves Yo Gabba Gabba! Finally, a show that isn't trying to fill our kids heads with garbage and political correctness!!! It teaches basic and positive lessons that we can all appreciate!

Jessica said...

My suggestion- some younger dancers!

My one year old is crazy about this show and she really does try to imitate all the things she sees on there --her favorite thing is walk in a circle and beaty beat/clap clap.

I know the little ones won't be as good as the older kids but they try so hard and I know my daughter would love to see that.

"Greetings" is our favorite episode around here but I agree that the early ones were the best- so simple but so good! (I think they are technically still in season 1)

mu kids LOVE this show and as I type have made me replay the song by The Saltines "I'm so Happy" over and over...I have tried to search iTunes to purchase this song and I can't find it anywhere for purchase....can you please tell me where I can find their music?

Thanks,
erica
