Nickelodeon has just released its first YO GABBA GABBA!™ DVD, The Dancey Dance Bunch ($16.99). If you can’t get enough of the weird and wacky live action show, or if you don’t get Nickelodeon and have missed out on this unique show, here’s your chance! Hosted by DJ Lance Rock (who is a real DJ not just an actor) and starring offbeat but kid-friendly life-size puppets, kids can learn about simple concepts like friends, eat, dancing and being happy. Coincidentally, the DVD’s four episodes are titled "Friends," "Eat," "Dance" and "Happy."
With guest appearances from celebs that only mom and dad will recognize like Mya and Elijah Wood and Hector Jimenez, this is one of those kids shows that parents can enjoy too. Check out the videos on the website.
PLUS they just released an album of favorite songs including the supremely awesome "Party In My Tummy" available only on iTunes. The other 12 tracks feature tunes from the series’ first and second seasons from The Ting Tings, The Roots and Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon and The Red House Painters. Additionally, Hip Hop legend Biz Markie lends his talent on the unique “Biz’s Beat of the Day” segment.
