Guilty pleasure: I enjoy watching Yo Gabba Gabba from time to time. It’s not like I watch it everyday, but every now and then I’ll pass by it and click on it. The dancing is so cute and it’s like a cooler but less creepy version of the Teletubbies. I’m sorry but the Teletubbies suck! They could never ever be Yo Gabba Gabba.
Yo Gabba Gabba is a pretty cute show and the songs are soooo catchy. The best song I ever heard on their is this one called “Baby Teeth.” It so annoying but kind of catchy and fun to sing. I know it seems like Yo Gabba Gabba and shows on Disney are strictly for kids, but I’m not ashamed to admit I like watching ANT, Jessie, and Good Luck Charlie. I don’t think it’s that embarassing; at least I’m not watching them everyday.
But apparently Yo Gabba Gabba is trying to reach a wider audience, and they’ve teamed up with Erykah Badu, Bootsy Collins, The Roots, and Biz Markie. They made an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon a few days ago and performed their latest song “We’re Gonna Party Today.” I doubt any kids were up watching that late at night, so it was kind of like a performance for kids, but it was fun enough for the adults to clap to and enjoy. The best part of the performance is watching the Yo Gabba Gabba characters dancing around and doing this cute choreography. Check it out!
But wait, while you’re at it, check out Jimmy’s new game show as well. Everyone who watches his show knows that Jimmy loves good music, especially good hip-hop. He’s had The Roots on his show ever since it first started and he makes sure his show is diverse. He doesn’t just bring out the same type of guests, and he makes sure to liven up the show with funny comedic spoofs and game shows. His latest install in his game show segment is called “Ready, Set, Flow.” This game show takes three audience members and has them test their skills on the mic. However, the stipulation is that a machine called Rhyme Wave must give them a location, an item, and a person. Whatever the machine comes up with at random, they must include it in their freestyle. It’s such a cool game show and I’m loving it, so check it out!!!
