Top Picks: Yo Gabba Gabba

posted by Nell Minow

Is there a more adorable television show ever than Nick Jr.’s “Yo Gabba Gabba?” I love this mash-up of movie star, viral pioneer “Numa Numa,” and good old-fashioned silly dance fun.

    My 3-year-old daughter loves this show. It has all the stuff little kids love — a lot of dancing and wild costumes and silliness.
    That first clip is great!

    This has got to be one of the most obnoxious kids’ shows on TV. It’s loud and seems to have no point. And what’s up with the neon orange getup that the host wears? It’s ridiculous. When I turn on other shows, such as Dora and Diego and the Wiggles, I can follow what’s going on. With this, forget it. I’m just glad my 3-year-old likes other shows.

    Thanks, Lisa. I am glad you and your 3 year old found shows you can enjoy together. But I think that non-linear shows like this one have their place, too.

Movie Critic Ann Hornaday Comes Out as...a Christian
Washington Post movie critic Ann Hornaday wrote a brave and very moving essay about being a writer sustained by Christian faith and how that affects the way she approaches all films and especially those with religious themes. As a critic, my first obligation is to assess each of these films not as
