Jack Black + Children's Show + Napoleon Dynamite Director = Hilarity (for comedy-starved parents)

My son loves a show on Nickleodeon called "Yo Gabba Gabba."  It is an extremely peculiar show and, when I was first forced to watch it, it simultaneously gave me a headache and made me concerned for the future effects it would have on my son's mind.  You can read my review of the series, here: A Children's Show that Grows on You.   If you don't want to read the review, just note that I've really come around on the show and now I'm a big fan. 

Jack Black was the guest star for the episode entitled "New Friends", and all I can say is, it was fantastic.  The show frequently features guest stars who appear for a segment called "dancy-dance time."  Surprisingly, dancing is the theme of the segment.  Black does the obligatory dancey-dance (sidenote: I can't believe I'm a highly educated man and have used the phrase "dancey-dance" repeatedly in this review, but then again, I can't believe a lot of things about myself these days... stay tuned for my review of "What the hell happened to me?"), but stays on for the entire episode, which has the added benefit of being directed by Jared Hess (the guy who directed Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre).  For you comedy starved parents out there, set your Tivo to record this episode or buy the DVD to watch with your kids... it will be some viewing with your little one that you can get some legitimate adult laughter out of. 

I even think adults whose comedy tastes haven't been brought down to the level of a toddler will enjoy Black's performance, but I could be wrong.

So this is what I have to look forward to? Are you sure kids don't love SportsCenter and the Daily Show just as much?

I freaking love this show, much to my own shock and dismay. Things make a whole different kind of sense when you cohabit with a toddler, eh? I'm inspired to write my own review of the series. Thx!
