YMMV / Yo Gabba Gabba!

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Some mysterious guy named Do-It, who dresses in silver, splits into three and is much smaller than the Gabba folks, shows up for only a few seconds in the "Dance" episode. And that's the last we saw of him (or them).
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: A video shown at DJ Lance Rock's solo concert appearances reveals just how he became the protector of Gabbaland... in the style of a 70's tokusatsu show.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
    • Brad Pitt once dressed up for Halloween as DJ Lance because his kids watch the show.
    • In universe, the song "Be Nice To Everyone" ends rather suddenly with DJ Lance, in a beam of light, repeating the chorus in a deep, dramatic voice.
    • According to an interview on The Late Show with David Letterman, Bill Hader actually appeared on the show for the same reason Brad Pitt dressed up as DJ Lance for Halloween: to be in something G-rated for his children. Despite that his daughter was later embarrassed over it (Hader compared the embarrassment to if his father appeared in Star Wars), it was still very funny and very sweet.
    • Everyone enjoys the Gabbaland Art Show, congratulating each other in turn. When everyone gets to Toodie's thing, they all just stare at it. No one knows what it is. There is a comedic beat before Foofa finally speaks up, after which everything proceeds as normal. It's just the kind of thing that a good friend would do in real life (exhibiting tact to spare a friend's feelings):
    Foofa: Uh, Toodie! That is great art!
  • Ear Worm: A lot of them.
  • Idiot Plot: Super Martian Robot Girl comics require everyone to call the eponymous hero over extremely contrived misunderstandings.
  • Memetic Mutation: Several, including Nathaniel (who likes to dance) and "Party In My Tummy".
    • Biz's beat of the day seems to be a popular subject for YouTube Poops.
  • Nightmare Fuel: DJ Lance's Cheshire Cat Grin, and some other things.
  • Squick: Muno, and in one episode, a girl's "cool trick" was playing a recorder with her nose. It's not really worse than playing it with your mouth when you think about it, but it's still weird.
  • Periphery Demographic: Come for the indie rock band cameos, stay for the surrealism!
    • Watch It Stoned: Widespread among the periphery demographic while watching the show.
    • They did perform at Coachella 2010... periphery demographic indeed.
    • They're even marketing specifically to the periphery demographic, too. There are shoes, t-shirts and even designer toys intended solely for adults.
    • And now thanks to South Park it appears that demographic has grown even wider!
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: During "Bugs", the Gabbas' song "Follow The Oskie Bugs" has a melody and rhythm which are vastly similar to Bruno Mars' hit song "Treasure".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The shortening of the theme song in the fourth season sorta sparked this review from fans.
  • Toy Ship: Yes, people ship them. The most common are Pledee, Muffa, Broffa, and Brobee/Kai-Lan.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: Toodie's contribution to the Gabbaland Art Show.
  • Ugly Cute: Muno & Brobee.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: When Time TV critic James Poniewozik reviewed the show, he stated that it would "convince you that someone slipped something into your Fruity Pebbles."note  However, co-creator Christan Jacobs is a conservative Mormon, and drugs are, quite literally, against his religion.
