Yooooooo Gabba Gabba!!!!]
Very early on, Lucy gained kind of a rep for watching college football. Now that she’s a bit older, though, her tastes are more age-appropriate. She scoots all over the house like a Roomba, but there’s one thing that can make her stay still enough for me to get away for a few minutes to fix a quick lunch: Yo Gabba Gabba.
For those who haven’t had the privilege, Yo Gabba Gabba is uniquely hard to describe. All I can say is that it involves a nice man in orange tights named DJ Lance Rock who carries around five characters named Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Todee, and Plex in a boombox briefcase, but then opens the case up so they can come to life for 24 minutes of dancing, lessons, guest stars, and fun.
Yo Gabba Gabba also has a great lineup of reoccurring characters. There’s magic drawing with Mark Mothersbaugh, formerly of Devo and recently the composer of soundtracks from several of my favorite Wes Anderson movies. Lucy and her dad both love practicing Biz’s Beat of the Day, featuring the legendary Biz Markie. And the musical guests have made the show a hit even with adults not lucky enough to have a little big fan like Lulu.
