"Hey! What do you want to play Toodee?"
Man, did I back the right horse! I've been the go-to Verdict Yo Gabba Gabba reviewer for a while now. Not only do I have a soft spot for this weird slice of kids' edutainment, but I secretly hoped that it would pay off with my infant daughter. Before she had the verbal skills to protest, I forced her to listen to the Gabba Music is Awesome! CD (which totally lives up to its name, by the way). Then, not too long ago, my wife got home from picking her up at daycare and said the six sweetest words in the English language: "Our child loves Yo Gabba Gabba!." Since that joyous day, the Asperschlager house has turned into Gabba central. Morning car trips are accompanied by endless loops of her favorite tunes; post-dinner playtime is spent with the Gabba bath toys she got for Christmas. We're barely two weeks into 2011, but I think I sewed up Father of the Year by bringing home Yo Gabba Gabba! Let's Visit the Doctor!, their latest four-episode DVD compilation.
If you've bought any of these Yo Gabba Gabba! releases in the past, then you know what to expect from Let's Visit the Doctor!. Full frame picture, stereo sound, no extras. But c'mon…do you really need to know anything more about human-sized rubber creatures who live on a cardboard playset under the watchful eye of a bespectacled, self-proclaimed DJ who wears a skin-tight orange jumpsuit and a big fuzzy hat? Besides, my daughter is obsessed with it. If I hear her say that Toodee is sick one more time…I'll patiently listen and giver her a kiss on the head. Hey, what can I say? I'm a great dad.
Don't worry, I washed my hands before delivering this not guilty verdict!
