Big week for Nickelodeon’s delightful hipster kids show Yo Gabba Gabba!. Yesterday Sarah Silverman debuted the “Time To Mime” dance and Black Kids sang “We Love Clowns.” Tomorrow Anthony Bourdain plays a doctor and of Montreal perform a nutritious original called “Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast!” (Previously Kevin Barnes & Co. taught YGG! viewers the importance of dental hygiene.)
Weezer’s contribution is surprisingly great given the hit-or-miss state of modern-day =W=. Some behind-the-scenes clips hit the Web last year, but the full performance premiered this morning.
“Listening and dancing to music is … AWESOME.”
– DJ Lance Rock
Coming up this season: Erykah Badu, Band Of Horses, Blitzen Trapper, Chairlift, Rob Dyrdek, The Faint, The Flaming Lips, The Killers, and Solange Knowles. On the comedy side: Fred Armisen, Charlyne Yi and a reunion of the three male geeks from Freaks And Geeks. Could “Talent Booker, Yo Gabba Gabba!” be the most fun job in the world?
I will be disappointed if Band Of Horses are not in horse costumes.
