This quirky show was created by the dynamic duo of Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz. Both of them shared a common vision of creating something fresh for the kids. Unlike any other network-made popular show, Yo Gabba Gabba! was produced by two friends who were motivated by their fatherhood to gift their kids with something of its kind.
The pair developed a pilot program that was financed by the money they loaned from their family and friends. In early 2000s, this trial show became viral on the internet and got the attention of the director of Napoleon Dynamite, Jared Hess. He recommended it to the executive director of Nickelodeon Preschool, who liked the ingenious concept of the show. Yo Gabba Gabba! finally made its way to Nick Jr. and premiered in August 2007.
Popularity and Success
After a few episodes of its first season, the show became extremely popular with the kids. Its adorable characters, fresh format and exciting segments were liked by the viewers. The show’s sections like Dancey Dance Time, Storytime, The Super Music Friends Show and Cool Tricks made it one of the most likeable TV shows. Different jingles in the show became favorites of the families and resulted in instant success of the show.
Yo Gabba Gabba! also earned critical praise for its content and presentation. The Time Magazine stated that the show “will convince you someone slipped something into your Fruity Pebbles”. It was also listed among the top ten kids’ shows of 2007. This critical acclaim translated into many awards and nominations that became one of the reasons of its widespread popularity and fame.
Within six years of its inception, various live versions of the show have been produced. Yo Gabba Gabba Live! has toured major cities in the US and Australia to please the masses. Yo Gabba Gabba tickets have always been purchased by people who look for a perfect time out with their children.
