Anthony Bourdain on Yo Gabba Gabba

My boyfriend Anthony Bourdain will appear on the most kick-ass kids' show ever on March 10. I know you're all writhing around in your seats because you can't wait that long, so here's a clip.

Say what you will about Bourdain appearing on a children's show, but you're probably having those bad feelings because most of those shows are terrible. Ponder this, though - remember when Sesame Street ruled kids' television and you weren't cool unless you were on the show?
Considering Johnny Cash and Ice-T appeared on Sesame Street, Bourdain's street cred is safe with Yo Gabba Gabba.

If that's not good enough for you, "Dr. Tony" would like to cordially invite you to fuck off.

"I love YO GABBA GABBA. I don't care what you say, DJ Lance, Muno, Broby, Foofa, Toodie and Plex have taught my daughter many valuable lessons--like the desirability of napping, for one. Not to throw objects at Daddy's skull. Not biting. The value of "trying again" and "not giving up." All set to surprisingly weird, offbeat songs which--in another venue and with other lyrics, one might find oneself enjoying at a club. They get good indie bands as guests, and Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO is a regular. I know every song and every lyric by heart."

I've called Anthony Bourdain my boyfriend for years! That's so funny - you and I are going to have to fight. *grin* I had wondered if he did Yo Gabba Gabba for his daughter. He's just... awesome. I hadn't read that quote - thanks for posting it!
