Nickelodeon’s “Yo Gabba Gabba”: Just Add Weed and Enjoy

Yo Gabba Gabba

It’s funny how shows for children and shows for stoners are almost exactly the same. Well, this time, they are. As ABC.com reports, “Yo Gabba Gabba,” the colorful and undeniably hilarious show on Nickelodeon, teaching toddlers things like good nutrition and how to make their bed, has become a hit with 20-somethings across the country.

Check out a clip from “Yo Gabba Gabba” after the jump!

From the article:

Kicklighter likened “Yo Gabba Gabba!” to a modern-day version of “The Muppets” because of the celebrity guests the show features. Actor Elijah Wood has appeared on one episode, and popular band “The Shins” is set to perform on an episode to air May 23.

Several of the show’s older fans told ABCNews.com that the indie-musicians featured on the show make it that much more attractive.

These unique qualities led Brown Johnson, creative director for Nickelodeon, to pick up the show, and they are why co-creators Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz explain the older fan base.

“It makes sense that college-age kids would take interest in watching because there is a strong pop culture element to this show, and because we have popular bands that college-age students like on the show,” said Jacobs in an e-mail to ABCNews.com.

But the real reason for the show’s college-age popularity isn’t just its “pop-culture elements.” It’s the weed. So toke it up, and check out the video clips below!
