Yo Gabba Gabba, for those of you without small people running around your homes, is basically a kids’ show for hipsters. But it’s all much less obnoxious than that sounds.
It is amazing.
The host – DJ Lance Rock – is someone who I imagine would be totally fun to get a beer with (say that about Barney), the “lessons” are actually quite fantastic (don’t bite your friends), there are little nods to classic ’80s video games and dance breaks aplenty (love those)…and the whole thing is quite obviously intended to appeal nearly as much to parents as to their kids.
Oh, and Anthony Bourdain once made an appearance on the show.
You know how I feel about that.
And the music is legitimately awesome. Above, that’s The Roots singing “My Lovely Family,” a song that has now taken up permanent residence in my head.
