YO GABBA GABBA! premiered in the U.S. on Nickelodeon in August, 2007 and currently ranks as one of the most popular series on television. The show won a BAFTA in 2008, was nominated for an Emmy award in 2008 and was named one of the best new shows of 2007 by TIME magazine. The series infuses retro-style and beat-driven music to teach simple life lessons through a vibrant world of characters who play and dance as soon as they hear the magic words, "Yo Gabba Gabba!"
Today’s most popular names in movies, television, sports and music guest star in the show, including Jack Black, Andy Samberg, Melora Hardin, Elijah Wood, Tony Hawk, Amare Stoudemire, Biz Markie, Mark Mothersbaugh, The Roots, and The Shins, among others. The series is now in its second season in the U.S. and airs in several major international territories, including Australia, Canada, Israel, Latin America, New Zealand, South Africa and the U.K.
Based on the record-breaking podcast, the show is voiced by Ricky Gervais, his longtime collaborator Stephen Merchant and colleague and friend Karl Pilkington, whose offbeat musings inspire many of the storylines.
Topics discussed in season one include: a Serbian man who invented a sex machine for women, a dialogue about America's first nudist organization, a serum that ages dead people backwards, the rarity of seeing a homeless Chinese person, customs of undocumented tribes in New Guinea, the true meaning of such sayings as "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" and the meaning of "a stitch in time saves nine," as well as the popular recurring "Monkey News" segment.
The 13-episode first season of THE RICKY GERVAIS SHOW has inspired critical praise, as well as devoted viewers. The New York Times said the series is "proof that big laughs can come in small doses," while the New York Post described the show as "crazy fun," and the Houston Chronicle observed that the show's "pointless conversations will keep you in stitches."
