A new season of Yo Gabba Gabba (that trippy weird kids show co-created by the Bat Commander of the Aquabats) commences within a week! There are a load of people appearing on the show (for some reason) and some of them include: Band of Horses, The Aquabats, Anthony Bourdain, Of Montreal, Mos Def, Devo, Sarah Silverman, and Weird Al Yankovic. I’m curious to see what these people will be doing. I’m sure YouTube will have clips of their embarrassment.
The party continues with the Gabba gang – DJ Lance Rock, Brobee, Muno, Toodee, Foofa and Plex – as Nickelodeon premieres the third season of the award-winning preschool music series Yo Gabba Gabba! on Monday, March 8, at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT). The new season commences with a week of brand-new episodes featuring Sarah Silverman, Weird Al Yankovic, Black Kids, Jack McBrayer, Paul Scheer, Weezer, Anthony Bourdain, Of Montreal, Mos Def, Devo, The Aquabats, Mark Mothersbaugh, Biz Markie and a special remix by Travis Barker, Monday, March 8 – Friday, March 12, at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT).
