I also like watching shows that teach my children a thing or two - like The Electric Company, How It's Made, and Mighty Machines. (I can tell you with absolute certainty the difference between a backhoe and a front loader.) And my 4 year old's current favourite show - Man vs. Wild. I'm not so into that show, to be honest with you, but I'm a girl, and well, I don't like the idea of eating larvae from a tree.
Anyway. Some shows, my children never got into. And with good reason, I think! Shows like Yo Gabba Gabba. (There's a party in my tummy... so yummy, so yummy!) Now, I know many children love this show, but to me, it is kind of... creepy.
DJ Lance and the freaky monsers - Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex. (What?) The trippy music! And the psychadelic colours. It's like Woodstock for children.
From Wikipedia: "Although “Yo Gabba Gabba!” was created as a show for young children, it has slowly become a sensation among college students and even some parents who are entertained by its retro/indie style, bright colors, simplicity, and entertaining music from many of the popular bands featured on the show."
The most disturbing dude on this show?
I mean... come on. What do you think when you see him? It's not just me, right? Right?
I can handle The Backyardigans. I used to love Blue's Clues. I like Mr. Maker and even though Ruby annoys me, I don't mind watching Max and Ruby. If Dora is on mute, I'm okay with her, too. But Yo Gabba Gabba is just a big mess of a show for me.
I just don't understand it! Do you?
