Yo Gabba Gabba

10/28/2008

Believe it or not–that’s the name of a kids TV show on Nick Jr. The show has positive messages for kids but is engaging for mature audiences with absurd over exaggerations. Here is the intro to the show:

YO GAbba GAbba! Remember, this is a kids show. But like Sesame Street that SFCritic grew up on, Yo Gabba Gabba has popular musicians perform on the show. If you hadn’t noticed in the introduction clip, Biz Markie stars on Yo Gabba Gabba, and has his own sequence
called “The Beat of the Day.”

I feel actually kind of bad for Biz Markie. He looks ridiculous. Sure, he’s probably making bank, but really? Just a note–this might explain why some skeptics say hip hop has been sold out.

For further enjoyment take a look at Feist performing on Sesame Street. Amazing. I mean her music of course.
