Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Yo Gabba Gabba! is a kids' show on Nick Jr. with a whole lot of content that doesn't exactly seem oriented towards kids. It was co-created and is written by Christian Jacobs, also known as MC Bat Commander of The Aquabats, and directed by Matt Chapman, co-creator of Homestar Runner.

Each episode focuses on DJ Lance Rock's magical toys; Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex; playing together and learning new things. Their adventures are loosely connected by a single theme, and are separated by trippy filler segments, including:

  • Jingle: Once an Episode music video related to the episode's theme, usually done in Adobe Flash.
  • Story Time: A Flash-animated segment where a girl reads off a short story, usually leading up to An Aesop. Occasionally done as a comic book featuring a character named Super Martian Robot Girl.
  • Biz's Beat Of The Day: Biz Markie beatboxes to a different rhythm each time.
  • The DJ Lance Dance: DJ Lance makes up a simple dance and tells how to do it.
  • Cool Tricks: Featured kids (and sometimes adults!) show off their talents.
  • Mark's Magic Pictures: Mark Mothersbaugh shows how to draw a simple picture, which comes to life.
  • Other segments have the main cast asking you to join in an activity: Color With Brobee, Listen With Toodee, Learn With Plex, et cetera.

The series is largely music based, with frequent musical numbers and rhythm-driven activities. Once an Episode the characters watch a music video, with guest appearances by popular indie rock acts like The Shins and Of Montreal. This has helped it build up a Periphery Demographic of college kids.
