Yo Gabba Gabba! is a children's television show currently airing on the Nick Jr. cable network in the United States and the Nick Jr. networks in the United Kingdom & Ireland, Italy and Australia as well as Treehouse TV network in Canada. Created by Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz, the program is produced by The Magic Store and Wild Brain.

The series premiered August 20, 2007 on Nick Jr. and began broadcasting February 23, 2008 on Noggin, now Nick Jr.. It has been renewed for a second season which airs in 2008.[1]

On April 31, 2008, the series received a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design/Styling.[2]

Some claim the title of the series is derived from the chant "Gabba Gabba Hey", first coined by punk rock band Ramones, but any similarities to the Ramones end at the title.[3]



Hosted by a character named DJ Lance Rock, the series features a mix of live-action segments featuring cartoonish costumed characters—Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex--and many short animated sketches and musical numbers. "[4]

In its first two seasons, the show featured a wide variety of guests, including Jack Black, Leslie Hall, The Shins, The Aggrolites, Andy Samberg, Cornelius, Biz Markie, Shiny Toy Guns, Supernova, Mark Mothersbaugh, Rahzel, The Postmarks, Sugarland, Tony Hawk, The Roots, Low, Laila Ali, Elijah Wood, Mýa, The Salteens, Sean Kingston and series co-creator Jacobs' band, The Aquabats. In the second season guests included such bands as Enon, The Clientele, Joy Zipper, Of Montreal, Mates of State, MGMT, and The Ting Tings.

Among the varied animation sequences during the show is Super Martian Robot Girl, designed by indie cartoonists Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer.[5]

The show also featured regular use of visuals reminiscent of retro video games and TV shows.

The toy models of the characters that appear at the beginning and end of each show were made by Kidrobot.

MP3 demos were available from an official Yo Gabba Gabba site as early as June 2006, before a network had picked up the show.

The world premiere live concert tour of Yo Gabba Gabba took place in Australia in May 2009. DJ Lance Rock, Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex performed in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney with an indie house-band and secret, special guests at each show. The concerts were produced by Australian promoter, Entertainment Store Group.

Taking Back Sunday recently filmed an episode for the upcoming season, as did "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Killers, The Roots, Weezer, and Devo.[6]

  • DJ Lance - A male DJ with an Inhabitat of Gabbaland case, also a narrator and a friend.
  • Muno - A male red one-eyed cyclops who's friendly and first appeared in the episode "Play". He's the tallest and is somewhat clumsy (which in one case, was much to Toodee's chagrin) and he has a close bond with Foofa. He is also the band's guitarist. In the episode "Family" his family makes an appearance.
  • Foofa - A female flower bubble character who's pink and happy and first appeared in the episode "Play". She loves rainbows and unicorns and can play the tambourine.
  • Brobee - A little male green monster character who first appeared in the episode "Play". He is curious and in one episode, he is tired of being short. Plex accidentally makes Brobee DJ Lance-size and Brobee soon finds that being big isn't very fun for him. He is the drummer for the Gabba band. He is also, apart from Gooble, the only character who is able to frown.
  • Toodee - A blue female cat-dragon character who likes to have fun; she first appeared in the episode "Play". She has a close bond with Brobee and plays the bass guitar for the Gabba band.
  • Plex - A yellow male robot fellow who first appeared in the episode "Play". He is really smart and usually gives the lessons to his friends and is a fatherly-figure to the gang. He can play the keytar.
  • Gooble - An unhappy creature similar to Muno who first appeared in the episode "Happy" for the Super Music Friends Show. He cries all of the time.
  • Foofle - A blue character who was first introduced in the episode "Mystery" as Foofa's older brother. He is an avid surfer and spends most of his time at a beach.

One time characters

  • Muno's Parents - Muno's parents now appear in the episode "Family". His father likes computers and cowboy movies. His mother likes dogs and Chinese noodles which is maybe why Muno likes noodles. Muno's father is darker red than Muno but has a mustache and a hat. His mother has blue hair and no bumps (same as the other girls in Muno's family).
  • Cheebo - Muno's older sister who likes school and baby owls since they are cute. She is pink and wears a blue winter hat. She looks like her mom because she has no bumps.
  • GoGo - Muno's baby brother. He is almost a younger version of Muno because he has Muno's bumps and is orange. GoGo likes being happy and is almost always seen in his carriage.
  • Kemba - A female DJ who is DJ Lance's younger sister that appears in the episode "Family". She wears orange like DJ Lance and likes the Super Music Friends Show.
