So Yummy! So Yummy!

New Toys

When I first saw Teletubbies, I was a bit frightened.

They're kinda freaky! But the more I watched them, the more I thought how great a show it really was.

No, not because I was stoned out of my mind. Because there's so many colors and goofiness, it seems tiny kiddos could really get into it and even learn things.

I'm still freaked out by the baby sun, though. No really. Watch this and tell me you're not scared:

So when I was hanging out with The Boy this weekend, I thought we'd catch some of the Tub action. I was a bit dismayed when I saw they weren't on, so I flipped over to Nickelodeon.

Blue's Clues was on. I had watched this many times with Mitch and Bret when they were wee. I was happy to see that a hundred years later, I still remembered all the lyrics. "Blue skiddoo, we can too!"

The Boy was sitting on one end of the couch playing and watching Blue while I was on the other end filling out my driver's license test. I looked up to see Blue had said farewell and a different show was on.

And much like my first time with the Teletubbies, I was frightened. I had no idea what was going on with this show, Yo! Gabba Gabba.

The Boy, however, was enchanted! He was dancing and laughing. He had a giant smile on his face and would look from the television to me and then back again as if to say "Can you belive this shiznit? It is so crescent fresh!"

As I continued watching, I decided he was right! It was great! The music has cool beats and it's just incredibly weird!

I showed some of the clips to my mom. She wasn't as impressed. "Isn't it kind of poorly done for something on Nickelodeon?"

But I think that's part of the charm. It's so old-skool!

So now I'm obsessed with the show. I'm still not entirely sure what's going on, but I love it.

But someone needs to help me get this song out of my head:
