Who invented the Doodlebops?
Why do The Toddlers find them irresistible? This show, along with Yo Gabba Gabba, have played for hours over the last 36 waking hours I've been here.
Yo Gabba Gabba? Where did they find the name? Did some Account Exec come in drunk, was pushed for the name on the spur of the moment, and his secretary heard him throwing up in his trashbasket? Was it the call of one stoned Yankees fan to another on the 4 train after a win? "Yo! Gabba! Gabba!" and thus a children's series was created?
I can see why the adults who are in said series wear heavy make-up. For some reason, I see them as modern day Soupy Sales and crew, drinking in their dressing rooms.... doing their stint on the set, removing the concealing make-up and wigs, and listing their occupations as 'research assistant' when they apply for loans.
I suffered through years of 'Sesame Street', which wasn't bad, looking back on it. Paul Simon was on, you had the Count, and let's be honest, we all wondered about Bert and Ernie. Mr. Rogers lived in a world where no child ever shoved a broomstick in the spokes of another child's bike as he rode past, and He-Man let my son run around in plastic armour.
I've yet to see any little boy dressed as a Doodlebop.
Well, not in Utah.
