TV for Toddlers who take Acid

Holy crap.

Nickelodeon has introduced a new show called Yo! Gabba Gabba and I must say again: "holy crap."

Take 80's rap beats and video game references, a bunch of colorful and creepy puppet-people, celebrity cameos (see the 2nd clip), an emcee named DJ Lance and put it all at an ADD-inducing editing speed and you've got Yo! Gabba Gabba.

I can only imagine how absolutely hilarious this show would be under the influence of any number of substances. Actually, I'm glad my kid likes it because I get a chance to watch it guilt-free... and it's totally cracking me up.

Can't get much more Sid and Marty Kroft-ish than that.

My ten-month-old found it pretty entrancing.

OK, I didn't want to eat my vegetables, but I do now... no one should be left out of the party!

But on the other hand, "Yo Gabba Gabba" can't hold a candle to "Frimmin' at the JimJam!"

My girls actually really enjoy this. They tend to gravitate to things with good beats.
