About the Show:
Yo Gabba Gabba! is a half-hour interactive series that is highly focused on music, dance, color, and curriculum. DJ Lance Rock (Lance Robertson) brings to life Plex the robot and four friendly monsters - Muno from Summer Volcano Land, Foofa from Spring Flower Land, Brobee from Fall Tree Land, and Toodee from Winter Ice Land - who interactively teach children as they sing, dance, laugh and play in their colorful and musical world.

The characters interact with children by asking questions, teaching dance steps and playing fun educational games that teach and entertain kids.
