Perhaps I Should Look Into Alternative Forms of Entertainment
I don’t know how you moms of toddlers feel about Yo Gabba Gabba. I’m personally a little intrigued with DJ Lance. He’s like a Raj throwback from the days of ‘What’s Happening’.
However, something about this show brings out the inner beast in The Girl. She gets the Pavlov Dog reaction everytime it comes on that, for lack of better words, freaks me out. The Girl normally watches her morning shows with wonder and delight, but here’s what I heard this morning when DJ Lance introduced himself as ‘Your Friend’:
“I am NOT your friend you stinkin’ weirdo. Get a new outfit!”
(Don’t you love how she went straight for the fashion jugular?)
And when he dared introduce the Dancy Dance:
“You think YOU know how to Dancy Dance like crazy? I’ll show you crazy!”
I’ll show you crazy, indeed.
Tomorrow we are totally back to Wonder Pets.
Hysterical! When Yo Gabba Gabba comes on here, my boys can’t find the remote fast enough!
Does she “sing-song” after watching wonder pets? Mine do, and it cracks me up!!
I am out of that loop cause I have never heard of them. But if the girl thinks they are a fashion disaster, she probably don’t need to watch it!
Oh gosh! My little 2 LOVE LOVE LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba!!!
That is hysterical! DJ Lance is a crazy character, that’s for sure!!!
Never, ever, heard of it…on the other hand, my kids still sing the “He has to Pee-Pee” song from the “Wonder Pets”…and yes, they are 12, 10, and 7…the two-year-old finds nothing funny about the song in the least!
Ok…I’m out of this loop. I don’t know who these “people” are but I’m kinda worked up over them.
And…I don’t like the way they talk to each other. :)
My children detest Yo Gabba Gabba. I probably ruined it for them, though, the first time we saw it. I think I said something about how freaky it looked. Srsly, those things scare me.
Never heard of it and I think I’m glad after reading this! There are definite advantages to being in the school years stage of life!
LOL! I have never heard of that show but her response is hilarious! I checked out DJ Lance on Wikipedia – she is right, he does need a new outfit!!!! :)
I believe she was channeling ME! I do tend to get all sassy when “Yo Gabba Gabba” is on.
(This might be one of the funniest posts I’ve read all year, Lisa. Can I come over and play with your daughter?)
I am sooo glad my children pretty much haven’t watched TV for the last three years! Children’s programming just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
That is hilarious!
I’m enjoying your blog.
When I actually remember that it’s on, my son LOVES it! He’s only 22 months old though! :) I agree DJ Lance needs a new outfit.
Didn’t cha just love Raj?
That is so funny. My two don’t even know the show because I just knew it would be one of those that got on my nerves, so I have always turned it off fast!! Same goes for Sponge Bob….the funny thing is that my kids tell other people that “Sponge Bob is bad and my Momma doesn’t let us watch it….” The truth is that it just annoys me! LOL
I think Yo Gabba a great show! Excellent family values presented in a fun way with music that I like– way better than most shows I’ve seen for kids.
Ok, we like yo gaba gaba but if you want a seriously scary show, how about Lazytown?? I can’t even watch that one without nightmares. Who comes up with these shows?
