What can I say? I’m gaga over the Gabba.
Ever since Yo Gabba Gabba! first aired on Nick Jr., I’ve been hooked.
Maybe it’s the costumes. Maybe it’s the music.
Maybe it’s the fact that they had my Internets idol Leslie Hall as a guest.
But when I heard about a new episode featuring Jack Black, I nearly fainted.
Could any quirky combination be more perfect?
Just like peas ‘n carrots, Jenny.
I We had the opportunity to preview the new Yo Gabba Gabba! “New Friends” DVD, and I was never so giddy as when that little package arrived in the mail. Not able to wait until the younger ones were able to watch, I popped it into the DVD player for the 11-year-old and I to preview.
And I’ll admit it: When I first saw Jack Black riding his talking mini-bike through the air, I snorted.
If you’ve never seen Yo Gabba Gabba!, it’s a live-action program for preschoolers featuring DJ Lance, 4 monsters, and a robot who all teach lessons through skits and surprisingly endearing synthesizer-esque songs. “There’s a party in my tummy! So yummy, so yummy! There’s a party in my tummy! So yummy, so yummy!”
Here’s a synopsis of “New Friends”:
In “New Friends,” Jack rides into Gabbaland on his mini-bike and runs out of gas. Lost and scared, Black meets each of the Gabba characters, who become his friends and refuel the mini-bike so he can head home. Along the way he sings, dons DJ Lance’s orange jumpsuit and teaches the characters and the viewers at home a new Dancey Dance called the “Disco Roll.”
You’ve gotta watch this video of Jack Black groovin’ in his DJ Lance duds. Just try not to laugh. C’mon, I dare ya!
Honestly, could there be anything funnier?
