All of the children’s wardrobe from the show are created by the costume department exclusively for production of Yo Gabba Gabba!. These designs are presently not available for purchase. Maybe someday…?
All children on the show are generally family or friends. We do not hold casting calls for the show.
Creators Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz were young fathers who wanted to create a show for their children that combined simple life lessons with music that they (parents) would want to listen to, with a heavy emphasis on beats and dancing. Although originally conceived in 1999, it wasn’t until 2006 that they were able to self-produce a pilot episode. Yo Gabba Gabba! officially became a broadcast show in 2007 (Nickelodeon).
Yo Gabba Gabba! is a television show for pre-school aged children, aiming to teach them life lessons through music and dancing. The magazine-style of the show allows for a variety of character segments, animation, music spots, special guest stars and performances from real bands.
The primary audience is children from ages 1 to 5 years old, yet often their parents enjoy the show just as much. Additionally, Yo Gabba Gabba! also has a strong following of young adults who appreciate its music, humor and sensibilities.
Some of the show’s segments include Mark’s Magic Pictures (with Mark Mothersbaugh), Biz’s Beat of the Day (With Biz Markie), Super Music Friends Show (Presented by “Swami” John Reis), Dancey Dance, Cool Tricks, Storytime, Knock-Knock Joke of the Day (feat. Jack McBrayer & Paul Scheer), Animated Jingles and lots more!
