The Salteens are set to appear on Yo Gabba Gabba!, Nick Jr.’s new live-action music series for pre-schoolers. Yo Gabba Gabba! stars host DJ Lance Rock, four friendly monsters and a robot, and takes place in a magical, colourful world that looks a lot like 1980. The series highlights simple life lessons, through song with the help of guest vistors ranging from Tony Hawk to The Shins and Elijah Wood, and features beat-box lessons with Biz Markie.
The premier episode debuted last week and featured a cartoon on the theme of “Be Nice to Animals” with music by The Salteens. The band will be back to perform the song “Happy” next Tuesday, August 28th in an episode that will also feature a drawing lesson from Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh.
The band is really excited, though mildly disappointed that their greatest work to date has come to fruition in a bunch of kid’s songs.
