I know this kind of activism isn’t our usual thing on here. And I know that Yo Gabba Gabba is just a kids show. But if you’ve ever actually seen an episode of the show, you know that it’s not just a kids show. It’s imaginative, it’s quirky, and it’s got really great taste in music.

Well Yo Gabba Gabba is in trouble, you guys. And we have to save it.

Here’s an excerpt from an email sent to me by a friend associated with the show:

Nickelodeon (who airs Yo Gabba Gabba) is at it again… pulling their corporate pouty-pie routine because they don’t completely own Yo Gabba Gabba. Although the show keeps increasing its popularity  here and internationally, they won’t commit to another season. They are also dragging their feet playing some  of this seasons’ new episodes (they keep using the old ones)… holding those new episodes hostage, so to speak.

Well that sounds pretty lame. So here’s what we can do about it:

If you would be so kind to sign this petition to show interest in the show, many fine/hard-working entertainers, musicians and crew could be employed again. It takes about 30 seconds to fill out the form. Pass it along, too! Thanks so much.

It actually only took me 24 seconds to fill out. So yeah. There’s really no reason not to. Here’s the link:

And just in case you’re not familiar with the show, here’s a few of my personal highlights:
