Children’s Television Just Got a Whole Lot Cooler

Not since the days of Teletubbies have I felt so compelled to watch children’s television. Enter Yo Gabba Gabba, a popular Nick Jr. tv show that airs on Treehouse TV network in Canada. It is a part human, part costume character show, that has animated segments and musical performances.

Since the series premiered in August 2007, some notable guest stars have made appearances on the show, including Elijah Wood, Tony Hawk, The Shins, The Ting Tings and Biz Markie, a regular who teaches kids how to beatbox in his segment, Biz’s Beat of the Day.

Maybe the success of the show has something to do with the fact that hip parents don’t mind watching along with their children if there is something in it for them.

Here is a clip from the show, when the Ting Tings made an appearance.

  1. YGG in Canada? Another reason for us to consider emigrating from the UK! I think you’re right about its attraction, I’ve never seen such a program mesmerise adults and kids simultaneously before!
