Sesame Street couldn't handle mixing kids' programming with Katy Perry cleavage, but Yo Gabba Gabba! gets it right every time. Perhaps it's because one of the show's creators, Christian Jacobs, is MC Bat Commander of the Aquabats. After becoming a father, he and a friend created Gabba, which began to go viral even as TV execs rejected it. The producer of Napoleon Dynamite spotted it and showed it to a Nickelodeon bigwig, and the rest is pop-culture/kid-show history. Host DJ Lance Rock and characters Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex are irresistible in their own right. But add guest stars like Of Montreal, the Ting Tings and Weezer, and the show becomes eye and ear candy for everyone ages one to 37.
