WWD: Seriously, Jack Black, CALL ME.

If you have not seen Yo Gabba Gabba (and I suspect if you don't have toddlers you have NOT), well, in my humble opinion, you are missing OUT. What's that you say? My brain has finally gone to mush? Only partly.For realz - YGG is the shiz when it comes to kidz showz (okay, okay, enough with the zzzzz). I am the first to admit that part of the reason for this is that it features actual, you know, HUMAN BEINGS and not cartoons, but the biggest part for me is the music and the guest stars. Everyone from The Shins to the Ting-Tings to The Roots to Elijah Wood, Melorah Hardin, the dude who plays Kenneth on 30 Rock, and Biz Markie have made an appearance.


But the creme de la creme, the top of the heap to guest? Jack Black. At least to my chillruns. Aww hell, to me too. I can't think of another celeb since Chris Farley who is as unabashedly FREE with themself as Jack Black is. The dude is a maniac, and hence THE PERFECT PITCHMAN for toddler shows. His episode of YGG is utter perfection. I love it like a fat kid loves cake. I love it ALMOST as much as my kids love Jack Black.

I'm not lying. Scarlett has taken to randomly declaring, "Me love Jack Black," except it comes out "Me wuv Jack Beee-ack." It's only a matter of time before she starts God blessing him in her night time prayer, right behind Santa.
The fact that Gulliver's Travels is out at theaters right now is SOMEWHAT of a life-saver because of all the commercials, because guess who accidentally let the DVR delete Mr. Black's episode? This guy. Gulp. I swear, The Trips ask to watch it at least twelvity-five times a day ("Jack Beee-ack? Jack Beeee-ack????"), and I have to tell them AGAIN, "Uh, mommy is sorry, but I accidentally deleted it from the DVR," to which they respond "Jack Beee-ack?"
Sooooo, Jack Black, if you happen to google yourself and come across this, I would be EVER so grateful if you could give me a call, drop a line, stop by if you're in the area and say hi to your biggest little fans. I ain't even joking.
I would be happy to make you a sandwich, some corn-dogs, macaroni and cheese WITH hot-dogs, or Chef Boyardee to make it worth your while.

You can even bring your friend along.

Come ON - I believe I've just made you an offer you can't refuse, am I right?

I've seen every episode so many times... my little nuggets adore YGG!!
Jack black is so underrated in Hollywood because he's beyond hilarious!! School of Rock is his crowning achievement...

Kelly - thank ye kindly. YGG rocks - you will love.

Freelance - thanks mamacita. How are your eyeballs doing?

Amy - Dude. GET THEM. I. Love. Them. The black ones are hot too - have you seen the pewter ones? Fab. I just saw the cognac ones right before Xmas on endless.com for something like $79, which is as cheap as I have seen them anywhere (unless you can score a pair on eBay).

Niko - I TOTALLY agree. I love JB, LOVE School of Rock. He's one of those guys who can be manic crazy wackadoo or sensitive charming guy and be believable in either role.
