Gabba Gabba

From Erika Lincango




     Yo Gabba Gabba! is a children’s television series currently airing on Nick Jr and Nogin cable networks in the United States. It is a fun live-action program targeted for young children ages 1 and up. It was created by Chistian Jacobs and Scott Schultz. The program is produced by The Magic store and Wild Brain. Its executive producers are Charles Rivkin and Jon Berrett. 


     On April 30, 2008, the series received a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design/Styling. It is hosted by a human character named DJ Lance Rock who introduces to the audience  friendly toy monsters in a magical land full of music, dance, colorful cartoons, and simple life lessons to learn and dance along. I chose this video because I found this program very creative and effective because it features a mix of live-action segments, bright colors, atractive music and sounds with cartoonish costumed characters like Muno a red cyclops, Foofa a pink flower bubble, Brobee a little green one, Toodee a blue cat-dragon and Plex the robot, plus many short animated sketches and musical numbers. The style of humor used in the show seems absurd, but it looks like it is intended to appeal to adults through its manic, frenzied approach to wholesome messages, while at the same time carrying all the content of the average Nick Jr. program for the whole family.
