Yo Gabba Gabba!

I didn't want to post something serious for 9/11 and sound all solemn, even if this is a sort of unofficial memorial day for us Americans. So i decided to post something about the best children's television show ever made, Yo Gabba Gabba!

Now, the interesting thing is that Yo Gabba Gabba! is shown on Nick, Jr. and is clearly targeted at preschool, Sesame Street-age kids. However, it's very popular with my 13 year old son and his friends. My son is also a big fan of the Aquabats, some of whose members are associated with the show. They've also had musical guests like the Aggrolites and The Shins.

Quite frankly, the show is brilliant. If you don't find yourself nodding along with the tunes about straightening up your room and other wonderful advice, you probably are lame in other important self-limiting ways. It's one of those shows that appeals to adults and its target audience by being quirky and fun without ever crossing over into creepy.

Watch it. It's really awesome, and it proves that the terrorists have already lost.
