Caught In The Act!

Viciously sweaty ping pong challenges have been rapidly going on for the last week or so, a few players have even gone as far as purchasing their own paddles. Some however, are going above and beyond, by catching up on their TIPS FROM THE PROS!

Here we see Ricky learning from the best via YouTube (and full-screen, wow):

Immediately after these shots were taken, the office erupted into laughter while Ricky turned a rather Munoish shade of red.

If you have any great ping pong tips or stories, be sure to let us know in the comments section!

Oh, and a fun fact: The sound of ping pong being played is one of the happiest sounds in the world. True fact, seriously.

Awesome dudery all around!

Ron Cameron stopped by and if you dont know about Ron well you can find out more about him on his blog or in this article.

Ron helped us last year on the "Ride" episode; not only did he create the "Ride" jingle (animated by Darin Bendall), but he also did some really great stunt-double work for Muno!

In other fantastic news, Dan Kelly started working today!!
Hooray! Dan Kelly is AWESOME!!

Dan has been in such bands as: Only Crime, Hunter's Revenge and probably at least 234 more. We are stoked to have him on board.

I know what you're thinking, we just love cake right? Well yes, you are right. We love birthdays even more, today we had the great pleasure to celebrate Parker's. Just look at how surprised he was when we lured him into the birthday cave...

His mighty lungs blew out the thousands of candles with ease...

Even Tyler was here to help celebrate; BROTHERHOOD!

Hooray! Happy birthday Parker, we all love you.

I ♥ NY!

Here's some math you can get behind:
DJ Lance Rock+Brobee+Central Park+10,000 Fans= FUN!

DJ Lance and Brobee performed a 30 min. set for THOUSANDS of fans at the Central Park Summer Stage event. Well, the thousands that got in. Over 5,000 were turned away because the place was so packed! Thanks to everyone that made this event possible and so amazing! Everyone was singing and dancing! Here are pics from the event! Brobee made us delete the pic of him eating pizza (he got cheese all over his fur).

(All pics provided by Laura Hanifin. Thanks Laura!)

Nevertheless, home made Yo Gabba Gabba goodies are still the coolest ever. Seriously! For example, check out these 3 homemade goodies from Delane Lyn, a Yo Gabba super fan!
It's Muno's sister Chibo (I♥her), GOOBLE and a little baby named Dexter. OK, so the baby isn't a Yo Gabba Gabba character, but I'm pretty sure he was homemade, so there. You know, something needs to be said about Gooble's growing cult status, especially in the homemade goodies world. Maybe I 'll say something tomorrow.

Today is Scott Johnson's birthday, hooray Scott!

Scott, AKA Scojo is an incredible costume designer and master craftsman who works on our little tugboat of a show. He came on board last season, in a pinch and ended up sticking around much to our delight.

Scott has worked with the Jim Henson Creature Shop for years and years, he also worked on Crank Yankers and the new "Where The Wild Things Are" movie as well as many other awesome productions. We are really lucky to have him, he has a great attitude and really knows his way around furry costumes.

So to you Scott, on you birthday, WE SALUTE YOU!

The Art of Yo Gabba Gabba!


This Saturday, July 11, in Minneapolis, the Pink Hobo Gallery (507 E. Hennepin Ave.) will host an art show “The Art of Yo Gabba Gabba!” featuring artwork from the Nick Jr. TV series. Among the items on display: never-before-seen original drawings and sketches from the show’s creator and lead designer Parker Jacobs, props used in the show, and original production artwork from the show’s guest artists including King Mini, Mark Mothersbaugh, Option-G, Panda Panther, Megan Brain, Aaron Stewart, Mitch Loidolt, Tim Sievert, Julia Vickerman, and Tanya Haden.
