I'm considering a new career option. Creating shows for kids. Considering the "competition", it can't be that difficult. Yo Gabba Gabba? Really? That's all you've got? I can imagine that creative meeting.
"How about we have some... monsters? blobs? unidentifiable life forms?... dance around singing ridiculous songs? We could give one of them abnormally long arms that flail about in a creepy manner. To teach acceptance. Of people with unusually long arms."
And what's up with DJ Lance? There's something not right about that guy. If we came across DJ Lance, I would grab the kids and run the other direction.
I read that the over-the-top humor is intended to appeal to parents, thereby providing a show entertaining for the entire family. That brand of humor is lost on me. Am I the only adult who doesn't find Yo Gabba Gabba appealing? To be fair, I've never been able to look past the costumes and poor choreography to find the value of the show. We rarely watch Yo Gabba Gabba, but apparently it appeals to Big One. Today at the lunch table, he entertained us with a rendition of "There's a Party In My Tummy".
So tell me, Mamas. Am I missing something in Yo Gabba Gabba? Don't worry, I won't hold it against you if you find arm-flailing blobs appealing. I just miss the Smurfs and Tom and Jerry type shows of my youth. The kids shows of today just aren't doing it for me.
