When the show premieres on October 29, the first three episodes will be available, with new episodes to follow each Friday.

"Off the court, the show reveals what it's like to grow up in America."

How can a show reveal what it's like to grow up in America to an audience that has largely grown up in America? Bad copy, should be "...explores what it's like..."

‘There’s a party in my tummy, so yummy… so yummy….

(sad) but, I want to go to the party in your tummy…

(excited) yeah!

I still use this to get my 5 year old to eat the rest of the food on his plate. He feels sorry for the broccoli wants to join the Mac and cheese in his tummy. So he eats the broccoli help him out.

Yo Gabba Gabba is one of the trippiest kids shows I've ever seen. Nonsensical plots (typical) and kids music by The Killers, Ladytron, Erykah Badu, The Flaming Lips, and Weird Al (uhm, not typical)...I'm kind of stoked, actually.
