Last month, we mentioned Robert Schneider's new project Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine. And earlier this week, Schneider, the ever prolific Apples in Stereo mastermind, released his debut under the Robbert Bobbert moniker, and already the whimsical, kid-centric project seems to be gaining truckloads of momentum. We just learned that Puny Entertainment, the animators of Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba have signed on to bring the Robbert Bobbert character to life on the small screen. The animation effort is being spearheaded by Carolyn Suzuki, a creative producer who's worked on programs for both the Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. On a related note, Schneider is slated to appear on Good Morning America on Sunday, March 1. After the jump, check out a clip of Schneider performing a Robbert Bobbert track titled "We R Super Heroes."
