"There's a party in my pants!" Wait, no, that wasn't it... Oh yeah, right: "There's a party in my tummy!"
I just walked in the door and caught the tail end of the new Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba! It caught my attention because Elijah Wood was on teaching some motley crew of robots and monsters how to dance the "Puppet Master." I've been crushing on Elijah Wood ever since Radio Flyer, which is just wrong, I know.
There are so many things wrong here and yet it all feels so right.
If you haven't already, you've got to catch an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! next week, airing on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. at 10:30/ 9:30 Central and then tell me what you think. It's a faboo mish mash of Sid and Marty Krofft style muppets, backgrounds that look as though they have been taken directly out of old Mary Blair illustrated Little Golden Book books like I Can Fly, and a sense of humor much like Cartoon Network's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
I was so ready for a show like this. And their production blog is called Yo Blogga Blogga! where you can see pictures of the "for cast & crew only" Paul Frank Yo Gabba Gabba! wallets. Really, I'm sold.
I may change my mind later, after say, one more episode of this Sesame Street on LSD psychedlia, but I love this show. Yo Gabba Gabba! has a new fan. Now if only I can convert my children.
And now, because my page doesn't load slow enough as it is, here is Elijah Wood doing the "Puppet Master." Don't say I didn't warn you.
