Has there ever been a more adorable television series than Yo Gabba Gabba? This week’s DVD pick of the Week is their latest release, “New Friends,” featuring guest star Jack Black. DJ Lance Rock, four friendly monsters and one robot play and sing in a colorful land full of music and laughter.

I have copies to give away to the first two people to send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Yo Gabba Gabba” in the subject line. Good luck!
