Yo Gabba Gabba!'s Greatest Hits

A year ago, in honor of Sesame Street's 40th birthday, Rocks Off brought you a list of the beloved television program's 10 Best Musical Appearances.

But 41 years ago, Nickelodeon didn't exist. Now the network is known for its retro-cool vibe, thanks to bringing back shows from the golden age of television like The Brady Bunch and The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and for introducing kids of my generation to music-centric programming like The Adventures of Pete & Pete and Roundhouse.

Shut up. You know that show was awesome.

And it is Nick that has brought us the coolest and worthiest successor to the Sesame Street throne. Move over Barney and Teletubbies. DJ Lance Rock, his magical boombox and his secret friends Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex are all here to steal your thunder. Yo Gabba Gabba!
