Yo Gabba Gabba! Teaches The Kids About Indie Comics And Early-'90s Freestyle

The Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba! has a regular animated segment called "Super Robot Martian Girl," designed by husband-and-wife indie cartoonists Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer (creator of the seminal all-girl comics anthology Action Girl Comics). In the episode seen above, Super Robot Martian girl saves the day by turning a boring party into a dance party by playing a cover of Nice & Wild's freestyle classic "Diamond Girl."

I @tudobem: "The Backyardigans" they show here in Scotland is soooo annoying. They dub all the voics with reeeeeallly whiny British ones (adults trying to sound all cutsey like little kids, it's horrible). I can't bear it. They also seem to show "Cowboy Polka" everytime we attempt to watch it. My husband thought that was the only episode they had ever made at one point. I seriously. dislike. Backyardigans.

But we LURVE us some Yo Gabba Gabba. It's nice to have a show that is so much fun for me to watch as well at the wee ones!
