Yo Gabba Gabba...

Today's topic - Why I hate Yo Gabba Gabba.

When my daughter was younger, we would watch the Noggin network that is now Nick Jr or something I think. At first it was just the usual Dora, Diego, Max & Ruby (don't even get me started on that one!). Then they introduced this new show, Yo Gabba Gabba! I wanted to stab myself in the eye with a fork every time I even heard that it was coming up next.

For the longest time Hannah wasn't even interested in Yo Gabba Gabba, SCORE! I wouldn't have to listen to 'There's a party in my yummy so yummy...' Unfortunately as time went on and she got bored with the same Dora and Diego and M&R episodes she asked if she could watch YGG. Well, I said she could watch one episode to see what we thought. To my utter dismay she liked it. Ugh..really kid?

I don't know exactly what it is about this show that annoys the hell out of me, it just does. Don't you have anything like that? You just don't know why something irritates you, it JUST DOES? For me, that is YGG. Thankfully she never got really into it and only watched it a handful of times, but that was more than enough for me to build up a hatred of all things YGG.

Now that she's older I have developed a strong dislike of other shows. Shows like Shake It Up. Or Kickin' It. So help me...

  1. There's a party in my tummy, so yummy so yummy!
    LOL I had to do it, I couldn't stand that show either but I'm a sucker and once took my nephew and the kids to a live show. It wasn't too much torture, the kids liked it but luckily those days are over.

    It's too bad you don't live closer, the girls could watch those awful shoes together and we can hang and drink wine to avoid it. Ha!

  2. We had a Yo Gabba Gabba stage. It didn't last long thought either. Its a show I look and wonder... WTH am I looking at? Although, she had her favorite episode and we both kinda grew fond of that one and that one only. I couldn't deal with Yo Gabba Gabba any more than that
