Well this is right up my 6-year-old sons alley. Back when the Aquabats appeared on Yo Gabba Gabba, years ago, my son fell in love with the song “Cool Pool Party”. I had to listen to this song over and over again! It is very catchy though and he had me singing it by the fifth repeated time. We even went to our annual Family Reunion, which of course they had a portable radio that had a microphone attached to it, and my son decides to pick up the microphone and entertain the entire family with his version of the “Cool Pool Party” song. It was so stinking cute and I wish that I would have had a video recorder so I could have taped it. I’m telling you he was really getting into the song, bouncing all around making funny faces, just like the Aquabats. Hilarious!

Christian Jacobs, also co-creator of Yo Gabba Gabba, has crafted the perfect blend of live-action and animation following the amazingly wild comic antics of the Aquabats. MC Bat Commander, Crash McLarson, Ricky Fitness, EagleBone Ralconhawl and Jimmy the Robot are the Aquabat characters who will take you along on their outrageous adventures. You get some pretty awesome special guest appearances on the show too! Weird Al Yankovic (now who doesn’t love “Weird Al”?), Lou Diamond Phillips (Southland), Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks – a great show from the late 90’s by the way!), Joe Heder (Nepoleon Dynamite) and more!
Let me tell ya, if you want a show with wild and crazy fun, this is going to be your best bet! Kids love it, dad’s laugh at it and it gives mom a chance to cook supper without having people in the house crowd her while she’s in the kitchen.
