So I was sitting at home yesterday. I was patiently waiting while the contractor finished our lovely fence addition in our front yard. Stacey and her daughter, Stella, had come over to entertain my small child. We sat there with the kids watching THEIR shows. Not that we as adults, have any free will in daytime programming if the kids are home.
It's either George, Cars, Wonderpets, or other similar shows in our homes. So we are watching Noggin. This show comes on, "Yo Gabba Gabba." It has these robots and creatures. It also has the normal person, but yet he is kinda of geeky. The graphics and music are really weird. We just didn't get it. Why would someone like this type of show?
This is a description of the show per Noggin's website:
Yo Gabba Gabba! is a fun live-action program for young children ages 1 and up. Join our host DJ Lance Rock as he introduces us to friendly toy monsters in a magical land full of music, dance, colorful cartoons, and simple life lessons that will get you and your children up off the floor to learn and dance along. Just say the magic words! YO GABBA GABBA!!
Meet the Cast!
DJ Lance Rock. He's our host, and in each episode he gets the show started with the magic words, "Yo Gabba Gabba!"
Muno, the red cyclops. He's very friendly, mild-mannered, but sometimes slightly impatient. He loves to learn and is very outgoing. Sometimes he can be a bit clumsy and has been known to break things.
Foofa, the pink flower bubble. She's giggly, outgoing, happy, bubbly, and likes things that are cute and cuddly. But sometimes she gets a little moody if things don't go her way.
Brobee, the green little one. He's cuddly and cute, but also cautious and needs constant reassurance. He's sometimes scared to try new things. Music, singing, and dancing help give him confidence and help him to learn.
Toodee, the blue cat-dragon. She's very smart and independent. She's also athletic and mischievous. Sometimes she gets too excited about things and can be selfish.
Plex, the yellow robot. He's always there to provide music, teach lessons, and use his wonderful magical powers to beam guests into Yo Gabba Gabba Land. Like a parent, he typically knows how to solve problems.
They're all ready to sing, play, and teach whenever you are. Just say the magic words! "YO GABBA GABBA!"
So this was my theory after watching this show. The only person who would love this show would be someone on ecstasy. Seriously, you have to be on some kind of tripping, mind numbing drug? Something that would make you hallucinate?
I don't know. I made the husband watch this junk last night. Yes, I had to DVR it to show him. He was like this is stupid.
Caden wasn't interested in it. Which I'm soo happy for!
