    Seems to fit right in. I don’t know what the kids will think, but Wayne Coyne should be the new permanent character.

    And if Larry David shows up here, just ignore him, DO NOT REPLY!!!!

    I Can Be A Frog was written by the band for their last album Embryonic so I don’t think the Yo Gabba Gabba! writing staff had much to do with it.

    I have a feeling that was typo and is supposed to read, “AND an original song penned by…”

    Love It!

    My kids are already familiar with the Flaming Lips and this song. I just saw them in concert and made sure to record this song being played for my 4 year old. I can’t wait for this to air on TV. I’ll have to DVR it, but we will watch it as soon as I get home from work!!!! I’m so excited about this that I wrote it on my calendar. Thank you so much for getting the Lips on your show. I appreciate shows that open children up to real musicians!

    When a band I love as much as The Flaming Lips appears on a show my kids love, it’s a great day to be a mom.

  • Chrissie

    This…is…EPIC. When I get to see the whole segment, I’m pretty sure it will make my brain explode (but in a good way).

    I can’t believe I’m going to TiVo Yo Gabba Gabba.

    That’d be awesome if they rolled right in to “Silver Trembling Hands” after this song but I guess that might be a bit much for the kiddie viewers.

    All I can say after watching that today with my two year old was, “WTF?!?!” Even the look on his face said the same thing. How can anyone call that talent? They suck! Wow, somebody at Nick should be fired.
