Yo Gabba Gabba!

The other day, C6 and I caught a little snippet of a preview for a new show called Yo Gabba Gabba. It looks like it could be either really great or really bad – I can't tell! But Biz Markie is on it, as well as Paul Frank's Julius the Monkey - so it can't be THAT bad. (Can it?) Also, the list of musical guests is suprisingly decent! I've got my fingers crossed...

This is from the Yo Gabba Gabba Wikipedia entry:
Yo Gabba Gabba! will be hosted by a character named DJ Lance Rock, and five toy monsters: Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex, and Toodee. It will also feature The MC Bat Commander and Ricky Fitness, two members of The Aquabats, and Adam Deibert (formerly of the Aquabats) as the voice of Muno the Cyclops.
Seen in the trailer are guest stars such as "the Clown Prince of Hip-Hop" Biz Markie, and designer Paul Frank's corporate mascot "Julius the Monkey".
The show will also feature a wide variety of musical guests: Supernova, The Shins, The Aggrolites, Shiny Toy Guns, Mark Mothersbaugh, Rahzel, Sugarland, Mýa, and Cornelius have all been confirmed to appear in the first season.

P.S. While writing this entry, the Yo Gabba Gabba preview came on tv and C6 turned it off. So I suppose that is his review of this show. HAHRhHHER!!! "Shark Sandwich."

UPDATE: 7/20: This morning C6 caught a mere couple of seconds of another Gabba Gabba preview and he turned off the TV and said, "I DON'T YIKE DAT!" The boy knows what he likes (train stations, elevators, blueberries, orange sherbet) and what he doesn't like (black olives, staying still, Yo Gabba Gabba).
