Has anyone seen the kids tv show "Yo Gabba Gabba" on Nick Jr. or Noggin? I have a 3 1/2 year old who LOVES this show and goes crazy whenever it comes on. I finally watched an episode last week to see what she was fussing about. I immediately got as hooked on the show as my daughter and enjoy watching it with her. Its a pretty cool show that features ska, punk and indie music and other cool guests.

In its first season, the show featured guests such as Leslie Hall, The Shins, The Aggrolites, Cornelius, Biz Markie, Shiny Toy Guns, Supernova, Rahzel, The Postmarks, Sugarland, Tony Hawk, Low, Laila Ali, Elijah Wood, Mưa and the Salteens. But my daugther's absolute favorite band featured on the show is The Aquabats (Christian Jacobs of the Aquabats is the co-creater of the show) who play their song "Pool Party" on the "Summer" episode. Everytime my daughter hears that song she jumps up and down and dances, and then once the song is over, she makes me re-wind the show to play it over and over again. Mark Mothersbaugh (of Devo) appears often on the show for a segment in which he draws. Biz Markie has his "Beat of the day" where he does beat box.

I just found out that the Aquabats are coming to the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale in November. I wish they were playing somewhere I could take my 3 year old because she would love to see them! But I just might go see them without her.

My 2-year-old loves Yo Gabba Gabba!
(OK so do I)

There is a tiki and hula chick in the episode "Greetings" (in the "hello, what's your name, how are you" song cartoon).

Ravenne, did you wear your party in the tummy shirt to Tiki Oasis? I saw someone wearing it there...

Ravenne

I went to Hot Topic because I heard that they had the "party in my tummy" shirts there, but they only had the shirts in adult sizes. So, I guess they realize that this "kids show" has appeal to a broader audience. I also saw an article somewhere that said that the show is popular with college-aged kids.

By the way, Target sells the Brobee figure (actually 2, a small and large one) that play the "party in my tummy" song.
