Yo Gabba Gabba animation producer and theremin demonstrator Kevin Sukho Lee here. Just wanted to mention a few things about about our upcoming Tuesday May 11 Yo Gabba Gabba "Origins" program at Cinefamily. We're super excited about it because it's a chance for us (who make the show) to celebrate Yo Gabba Gabba! with you guys (our loyal fans) and let you peek behind the curtain and hear about how it all started and how this crazy kids show went from being just an idea to a real TV show seen around the world (and at the White House).
Lance Robertson (who plays DJ Lance Rock) will be there, as well as show creators Scott Schultz and Christian Jacobs to talk and to answer questions.
As a special treat, we will be including never-before-seen footage. Such as the original demo made in 2005 - this is even before the pilot. Not many have seen this and survived to tell the tale. This is your chance! We'll also be showing peeks into season 3 that no one has seen yet! No where else will you get a chance to see this.
And if that wasn't enough, we'll be giving away free prizes! Who says we don't love you guys!?
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some folks are asking if it's going to be kid-friendly and the short answer is: YES! The longer answer is that we are showing lots of awesome Gabba footage and some old kids show clips, but we will also have time for Lance, Scott, and Christian to talk about the show. It's actually kind of like this blog you're reading right now! So bring the kids but just know that there won't be any dancing or singing in person (just on the screen). This isn't a "kids' show" in that way. But it is still 100% safe and maybe even enlightening for kids to hear about how an idea you start with your friends can become a TV show that is seen around the world! We'll have a Q&A so think of some good questions!
Hope to see you there. Be sure to buy tickets in advance if you know you want to go. It could sell out!
