Yo Gabba Gabba!, the kiddie show that grabbed our attention with original music from Cornelius and the Shins, has booked lots more bands to appear in season two. Ladytron, MGMT, Mates Of State, Datarock, Hot Hot Heat, the Roots, Jimmy Eat World, the Ting Tings, and Mixmaster Mike have all been invited by DJ Lance Rock to share educational tunes for tots. The fun started earlier this week with the Ting Tings singing Altered Images’ “Happy Birthday” to Brobee (AKA the green monster). Jimmy Eat World appear on today’s episode performing “Beautiful Day” atop flying cats and dogs. We have both clips after the jump in case you don’t TiVO much Nick Jr.
JIMMY EAT WORLD – “BEAUTIFUL DAY”
THE TING TINGS – “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”
Later this season MGMT appear as space Vikings performing a song called “Art Is Everywhere.” Obviously.
